k1100 k100 frame
« on: September 16, 2023, 02:44:20 PM »
hi
can anyone tell me if the k100 and the k1100 use the same frame? i'm looking at a k1100 gearbox, swingarm and F/D and included in the price is a k1100 fame with v5. if the frames are the same i can use it to chop it about the slot my k100 into it
cheers mi ducs

K100 tanks won't fit on the K1100 frame with a V.

The luggage mounts are wider apart on a K1100 but that doesn't matter if you're chopping the rear of he frame.

thanks for the reply, heres an image of the frame in question. i was hoping to fit the bearbox/swingarm and f/d to my k100 as i have been told it bolts straight up. fitting a paralever gives me more option on wheels and i might be able to fit a swingarm from a r1100s and run a "R" style monoshock with some modifications

bought it today and yeah,the gearbox fits straight up, tried it with my gs1150 wheel and it has less offset, will still need to machine a bit off but better, and better is good :twothumbsupp
