    • k75RS or RT fairing on a k75s?

      Hi,
      wondering if anyone can tell me if an k75RS or RT fairing will fit my k75s bike?
      I need some more protection from the wind.
      Thanks,
      Chris

      87m6chris,
      I would think it probably would, with some jiggery-pokery but I am not totally sure, I have a K75S and have not been happy with the fairing, just too many pieces, however I once rode the bike with it off and it does a better job than you think! My other reason for changing the set was poor headlight performance even with a Motobins upgrade bulb and I am going to look for a twin headlight set up, we have already had a discussion on the Forum about suitable products I found a half fairing set up by Powerbronze <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.powerbronze.co.uk/Shop/Product.aspx?PROD_ID=822847&MC_ID=818248#top" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.powerbronze.co.uk/Shop/Produ ... 818248#top</a><!-- m -->, that look OK, the firm that makes fairing for Triumphs quoted £700 plus for a full fairing see Sprint manufacturing @ <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.triumphparts.gbr.cc/10442/info.php?p=6&pno=0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.triumphparts.gbr.cc/10442/info.php?p=6&pno=0</a><!-- m -->, for a little research it seems many specialists firms have bought or acquired the original jigs and are manufacturing under licence products previously unavailable, so its worth having a web search, not sure where you are but Motobins, Sherlocks and Motoworks , ((Please note that we cannot supply to the USA and Canada))all do second hand stuff at a price, otherwise check out ebay!

      Hi Uwe,

      You may be right but.....the problem with changing a bike ie you are back to square one again, in that the said machine's condition is, apart from cosmetics is an unknown.
      Yes, prices are expensive in particular second hand BMW stuff, unless its coming from a friend of a friend, so to speak, however prices vary and M & P are £50 cheaper than the supplier!

      Does any enthusiastic member of the website play with moulding's or carbon fibre, is there not a budding body work genius anywhere.....Beachcomber or contacts?
      I have looked into the idea of having a go at producing my own stuff, but need a mentor before I start.

      And yet look at the prices here for italian stuff...<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.discovolantemoto.co.uk/bodywork/fibreglass-fairings/cat_79.html?page=3" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.discovolantemoto.co.uk/bodyw ... tml?page=3</a><!-- m --> it would errm that BMW really translates as expensive in options in replacement and restoration, however here one owner with a Boxer has had success...<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://aatherton05.home.insightbb.com/Fairing/Avonaire.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://aatherton05.home.insightbb.com/F ... naire.html</a><!-- m -->

      Here is a n interesting page to for K100 owners...<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.bmwons.ca/k100/k100.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.bmwons.ca/k100/k100.htm</a><!-- m -->

      What's the problem supplying US & Canada? Perhaps not SA either? I got my son to bring me a headlight glass and protector from Motorworks so still don't know.

      Frank,
      Its run by people who haven't come to terms with the fact that former Colonial's have turned their backs on the Motherland!

      There are all part of the George the Third Society...lamenting the loss of our Dominions!
      The injustice of it all. look what we did for our Colonial buddies in the two World Wars...ingratitude or what!

      Seriously, Frank, I do not know!


      Cheers

      Now youre talking JBW, A carbon fiber k100rs, should take Beachcomber 10mins or so?
      was thinking the other day how much weight you would save if you used the orig panels and copied in cf, then you could use lighter brackets etc.

      stop me know
