Attached below.  This is virtually identical to the K100 owners manual except for the number of cylinders.

NOTE: Do NOT use the tire pressures listed in the manual.  Those values are for the tires that came on your bike 20 years ago.  Tire technology and tires have come a long way since then.

Ha, you'll never "fill it to the brim" with the OEM flapper Matt.

Take note: there's an empty hole in the gas cap retaining mount. If you over fill, acts as a drain.

Hardcore bricKhead's sometimes remove the flapper for additional petrol range.

thanks for the PDF. 

Question:  I was hoping to find in this manual some more information on the heated grips controls.  Specifically, which way is low and which way is high?  I can't seem to figure it out when riding in the cold with gloves on.  Both ways seem to overheat my hands and I have to turn them off for awhile.

I found a section on it in this manual but it doesn't say! (unless I'm blind)

So, is up low or is down low?

thanks.

Your answer is here.

Quote
HEATED GRIP SWITCH: (If your bike is equipped with heated grips.) The graphic on the heated grip switch is a grip with a coil of wire around it.  It is a three position switch.  Pushing the top of it turns the heated grips on on the high setting.  Pushing the bottom of it turns the heated grips on on the low setting.  The middle position is off.

Thank You for your help and the K75-PDF. It cleared up some questions about life two owners ago.  Last owner only put a battery in it. Some dash lights not on before start up, ABS warning and bulb monitor blinking. But so it starts as we get new tires and start to get acquainted. MTS
