<<Some questions for the experts regarding a:
'94 R1100RS with ABS, no digital read-out panel, Canadian model.
1.) is the neutral switch identical with the neutral switch + digital read
- -out switch???
2.) is it possible to install digital read-out panel for this RS???>>
The Neutral switch is separate from the gear position indicator switch. the
GPIS installs right on top of the N.I. switch on th estub of the shift drum at
the rear of the gearbox. The switches are accessible with the swingarm
Yes, you can install the Rider's Information Display (RID) system to your
RS. The wiring is already in your harness, you just plug in the RID panel at
the fairing, and install the color-matched right-side fairing panel, The switch
installs at the gearbox and plugs in to the main harness under the tank on
the right side. You will see the empty plug connector. The parts are all
listed as available, but the kit is no longer listed as a single part number.
<<The following is not a question for this "R" list but T.P. Cutter may know
Regarding a '92 K75s:
Is anybody has experience of mounting radial tires on this bike???
The bike came with bias tires.
Would this K75s be more stable in turns with radial tires???>>
The problem will be in finding radial tires in the correct sizes to fit the
K75S. The S is very sensitive to suspension tuning, and most of the K75S
forks are set up very wrong. Make sure you have the correct oil quantity and
level, and that the FluidBloc Steering Damper screws are installed correctly.
Replace the steerign head bearings, and test the front wheel bearings for
condition.Throw away the stock rear shock and install a tuned Wilbers or Ohlins.
That's the quick and dirty on the K75S.
<<Could somebody advise me how to subscribe onto the "K" list???>>
The best K list currently is the "Beeg" list, the IBMWR list. Admin,
