Re: Stainless headers and acid.....

Hi paint strippers "Acid Baths" seldom are acid, and usually denature the paint. No harm asking though. Industrially we used to use Caustic HOT or Methylene Chloride, COLD with a water seal on top. Dont confuse UnHeated Hot Caustic with the Cold stripper, as an MGB owner discovered when his part dis...

Re: K1100RS heated grips

Hi Bob did you find your hole? The bars are RT/LT but I think the R grips fit, if I get a chance I will pop out and try the R grips on the K bars. LT bars probably wont fit a RS, the R ones did not interchange because they scuffed the inside of the fairing and restricted the turning circle aka -- lo...

Re: Alternative tanks K100

Hi
I can not be certain what my current tank is but think it is K100LT, it came completer apart from cap. I just fitted it and connected the electrics-- I get one low level warning light.

Earlier K100 (grab handles on the Seat) tanks, IIRC, are shorter than the K75 ones
