What do you mean exactly?

What we mean, "Oscar", is that you probably need to put something in your sig about the K bike you ride, and start posting about K bikes. That's what the forum i ...

Lou - I haven't had much luck with Asian bulbs - get a Phillips bulb made in Germany - they're the best. Give that a try. Is the bulb monitor bulb good?

Your bike must be at least 20 - 22 years old - or more.

Yes - definitely change the brake lines - the ...

Bob - I think I have put over 50,000 on the K since the forks were rebuilt - at least 40,000 - put gaiters on then - no leaks yet.

Mark - it's actually very easy to remove and replace the front wheel - doesn't take long at all. You'd have to get the tyre removed and flipped to get it right, though.

Thanks, John. Interesting.

Of course, I wouldn't use any of those on the bikes - especially the R - that one has the long, thin, folding filter...

Wonder how Mahle and Baldwin compare...

Some LTs came with silver forks? I thought that was just some of the black/silver RS bikes.

SE has Special Edition printed either on the speedometer or odometer - can't look right now.

If I remember... left side is compression, right side is rebound.

Hey Isaac - I probably wouldn't leave the bike on the side stand for months, but it's fine for stops, overnights, even days at a time.

But the R is faster, isn't it?

Hey Bob- WELCOME!
