It comes with a monogrammed, titanium gin pole to aid pick up when it's dropped.

Please forgive me if you have already answered this.   Is this a new to you bike?  Did it run properly for you in the past, or did this problem come with the bike?
The bike was pre-flogged by others before he plopped down cash for it, Gryph. He's had it a few weeks.  Some of the sordid details can be found in his first post.

I went back to the start of this thread, and have a question.  Please forgive me if you have already answered this.   Is this a new to you bike?  Did it run properly for you in the past, or did this problem come with the bike?

greetings...

lotts of nightmare stories about the 1600 in the beginning...  pre 14 is a no go for sure... the 16s were mostly addressed to be reliable... looks like they are competing with the 18 wing... same price points... no test ride cause of the weather... this k1600 grand america was $29 fully loaded...

Tell me if this picture looks normal or not.
The photo looks of normal-to-good quality. Whether that is fuel or mouse piss can be determine by a scent-test, or a taste-test if you're so inclined.

Thank you to all those who have chimed in.  I greatly appreciate it.  I'll work on cleaning all the connections next and might even look at replacing the fuel pump.  Although I don't want to just replace parts.  This K75 is definitely a bit more complex than my '82 nighthawk.


I took the tank off today to get a better look at what was under it and took a better look at the air filter, which was pretty bad and so I replaced it.  I was also cleaning around the fuel injectors today and noticed that the #2 (middle) injector looked like it was leaking where it enters the engine.  I didn't use any thing other than a screwdriver and can of air to clean so the wetness didn't come from anything I was doing.  Tell me if this picture looks normal or not.



Thanks again for all your help.  I'll look into getting a manometer to balance the throttle bodies and my other bike carbs probably could use a little balancing.
