oh forgot to say that the front bearing seems good, smooth side to side and no play.

The Motobrick Workshop / Re: Front wheel hop feeling????
« Last post by TommyT on Today at 09:48:28 PM »
Thanks all, I was wondering if something in the rear could be felt like it was up front. The first shop that mount mounted the rear tire couldn't balance it, no adapter, so I rode it for a while without being balanced, had the hop. found another shop that could balance it and that made no difference. I will look into the swing arm bearings and shock and post what I find but it may be a few days before I can get into it.

Project K-Bikes / Re: 95 K75 on Mod Table

Point of consideration on the "ABS" system and opinions welcomed.
I am reviewing the bike wiring harness and drawing up a work schematic to aide in removal of various electrical components. I've dropped the "Log the Motronic" plan and will remove it and other items that the MS ECU will control (as creating an msq or program template will be one of the easier aspects). I've heard mixed reviews on the ABS performance, and poor reviews on its robustness and cost per mile operation ratio.
So - looking for feedback on yay/nay before I jump towards removal.

Smiling when I read "It's frustrating"
Been there.
These bikes are well engineered...with a couple of foibles (like all)
Once this is sorted, it will be a reliable and satisfying thing.
I was / am...STILL :(   working in a crowded, messy single car garage. My bike took some months to revive.
And now I've pulled it apart ... must like the pain.


Hang in there.
It will get sorted, you will enjoy it, you will buy another...and another...and another

It is best to start your own thread with problems. There is a search feature on this site to help you locate answers to problems.

Thanks Martin. I actually have the fan able to turn on just not automatically. Is there a popular or best way to wire in a switch? Hope I'm not hijacking this thread hahah

Go back to the first posting and test as per RBM's instructions. Once you the OEM system working it is worthwhile to fit an override switch as it reassures you that the fan is working and regular exercise helps stop the fan from seizing.

Repair Guidance / Re: Fix a flaky or inoperative K bike speedometer

Good info. Is the speedmeter ring pressed onto the FD shaft behind the tapered bearing?  Just trying to figure out what to look for before I dive into it.

Hello everyone. First time poster so I hope I am doing this right. I too now have the "fan not coming on by itself problem". What I have done so far is: replace the fan (the brushes were totally melted), check that the wiring from the relay to the fan is fine by jumpering, replaced the temperature switch temp relay with an albeit used but supposedly working one from motolister. It seems that I am no further ahead as my temp light comes on and the fan does not. My question to the forum is should I continue trying to fix this or just go for the manual on/off switch repair- getting frustrated
