Anyone got a half dozen or so of the bolts used to connect the lower engine cowling to the fairing? No idea where they went. Used perfectly OK. Thanks. - Blake

Hey all,

I've just completed my first fiberglass fairing repair. Is there a rattle can brand/color that matches Mystic Red as closely as possible? I've heard you can get custom spray cans made. Ha ...

A couple years ago some yahoo in their jacked-up pickup backed into my 1993 Mystic Red K1100rs. Said yahoo knocked the left mirror off (no big deal: it popped right in just like it's supposed to) and ...

I've just installed a rebuild kit on my front brake after experiencing substantial leaking. Now, my throttle is sticking. I'm assuming some DOT 4 got into the assembly. Is this a typical response to a ...

Sorry I'm late to this thread and if the OP has resolved then good for them.

The Allen head is plenty exposed: I'm able to unscrew it so about 1/4" is exposed. Then turning it does nothing: it just spins and spins. I know there's a bushing inside (part #6 ...

Thanks.

I used corn starch to soak up the oil, swept it out, and then used a kitchen degreaser to clean it up. Fortunately, it was only on the metal part of the trailer and it cleaned up fine. Sin ...

FWIW:

Upon further inspection, it has actually leaked out of the top part of the fork at the seal. The fork is oily and the oil ran down the outer tube to the bottom and then dripped onto the floor ...
