Thread: What are good Flying Brick K Bike topics for videos?

    What are good Flying Brick K Bike topics for videos?

    I know this isn't a technical question or problem, please bear with me though.

    I've done a number of videos with my R bike (see the YouTube channel Nicht Uber Max, but I want to start doing some with my K 1200 RS. I also have limited access to K 75 and 100 bikes from time to time, so I could probably work some of those in.

    What are some of the things you folks would like to see done in a video for our K bikes? I can't promise I can get to all of them, but I'd really love some suggestions.

    (And, if you're in the general area of Warrenton, VA, maybe I could even use your bike for the video if you're into that.)

    Fire away! (and thanks)

    A long time ago, I put together a thread titled "All the K75 Tech Videos that Fit"

    https://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread...Fit&highlight=

    Either you can reshoot a better version, or stay away from what's already out on the interwebs

    The two most frequent mechanical issues for K75 and K100 models are:

    The need for frequent lubrication of the driveshaft rear splines, and

    The tendency for radiator fan motors to stick and melt the brush holders which then requires replacement of the fan motors.

    Check out Chris's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKfD76cF8bk

    My previous post also has videos that cover lubricating both the front and rear splines. (If they haven't both been done in ~2-3 years, it's probably time!)

    You forgot the crazy alternator, I remember you writing about this.
