    95 K75 Standard Fork Quest

    Please don't hate me for asking a fork oil-related question, but I can't find the answer anywhere (including searching this forum, using the Clymer and Haynes manuals, and asking some very qualified and informed friends):

    I have a 1995 K75 Standard and have seen two fork oil refill recommendations -- 330cc and 410cc. I know that Showa forks take more oil, but there isn't a consensus of whether the 1995 Standard K75 came with traditional BMW forks or the Showa forks. I'm inclined they did not and that I should use 330cc. Anybody know?

    TIA, Bill Shaw

    10 mins after I posted this question, one of my trusted contacts came through (THANK YOU Jon Diaz) and after showing him pictures of the forks on my bike, confirmed they are made by Showa and, therefore, require 410cc of oil. Apparently the Showa forks are more square at the bottom and the Sachs are more rounded.

    Hope this helps someone else down the road.

    Regards, Bill Shaw
