NM ~ Not Mine - Just Compeled To Post It Up / Re: Questions on this LT
« Last post by milq on Today at 10:30:23 AM »
At $1500 there should be enough in your budget to ship that sweet RT from Cali to Illinois.  On the other hand, if the seller can document the service and the fact it's a daily rider I would take a chance on a fly and ride. 

Be aware that shipping can be cheaper than a fly and ride when you figure airfare and three/four days of meals, gas and lodging.

It's in IL, NW Chicago 'burbs.

Thanx Laitch.
 I can't measure the fork tube on the K100 forks because it's on eBay. But you gave me a clue when you called it a Fitchell and Sachs/Brembo fork. The eBay ad said it's a Brembo fork. So it doesn't look good - too bad 'cause it's rebuilt and only $75.00.

thanx,
Ed

The MaxBMW fiche lists the rebuild kits at a, for BMW, almost ridiculously reasonable price of $39.03.

I would check the specs to see if they're the same diameter so they will clamp up in the triple clamps.  Also would check the travel and overall length of the legs to make sure they don't mess up the suspension geometry.  Will your brake calipers work on the new forks? 

I would suspect that the damping and spring rates might be a bit different, but close enough to be usable.

Of course, you can always cut off the rear loop and replace your old forks with an upside down Suzuki front end.  Not only will you fix your leak problem, but you'll have a yuneek project bike.

Measure a fork stanchion on each moto. In the 2V motos, 41.0mm is the Showa fork tube diameter on late model K75. 41.3mm is the Fichtel and Sachs/Brembo diameter on K100 and earlier K75. If the measurements don't match, you won't be able to swap stanchions and sliders.

The Motobrick Workshop / Will K100 fork fit a K75?
« Last post by ed3541 on Today at 09:01:20 AM »
Hi,

The forks on my K75 are leaking and dinged - so probably will leak forever. I want to replace them. A guy on eBay says his forks from his 1986 K100 will fit my K75. The part numbers are different (from MaxBmw parts fiche). Does anybody know if these forks are compatible?

Thanx in advance to all knowledgeable Brick Bikers.

What happened to Max's fiche? It's so user-friendly now that I can't understand it.
It's had the same looks for the last five years I've been using it. Maybe it's your phone that's different, if that's what you're using to access it. Be certain you're clicking on Classic Parts Fiche in the menu.

Thanks,  Scott and Latch. What happened to Max's fiche? It's so user-friendly now that I can't understand it.  Anyway I might have a line on brake parts from some Ducati guys in Cali. I'll keep you posted.
