New K1300R - It's ready!!!

Spent a bunch of time over xmas cleaning / "sorting" the K13R. It's now looking great, fully R&G'd, Rizoma mirrors fitted, minging stained screen cleaned and SC Project carbon exhaust mounted. Sounds fab.
Will take some pics and try to load 'em up. Now just need the salt to clear

Just curious what the date code is on those old Metzeler Sportec M3's?

That hugger would be from Skidmarx. I have one as well, and painted Lava Orange, it looks phenominal!

The windscreen is a Laminair Lip, same as me and Trevor have. They work very well, cutting that jacket bashing wind between $1.20 and $2.00+.
It comes with big Velcro sticky circles, but these will not hold, you have to drill the windscreen and buy some windscreen/fairing screws bolts to secure it properly. It also leave a very small gap between it and the original windscreen which stops it making a "pressurized " area behind the windscreen.
And I reckon it looks good too.

Many thanks - i wss a proper ocd over Xmas and spent about 6 hours "pristining" it. Might shine the headers at some point, but the bike is pretty clean now and had 7k on the clock. Just want some weather so that i can ride it lol.
I cant see your pic - getting message to update my account to enable 3rd party hosting. Any ideas?
Cheers

Yep. If you're using chrome, go to the Chrome Web Store, search and download (for free) the "Photobucket Hotlink Fix" Extension (offered by Bridgetroll.io). I think Firefox have same/something similar. And voilà what was once unseen, is now seen

NFI, sorry. I'm a bit limited with this stuff. I'm guessing perhaps check your settings to see if you can add extensions? Otherwise, wait a bit and hopefully someone will pipe up with an answer for you.

I fixed mine with the supplied sticky Velcro but it is not very sturdy. Has been like this for one season but one of the 4 Velcro is loose. I know I will eventually lose the part on the highway if I don't do anything.
I purchased a set of windscreen screws last fall but have not got around to install them. Will be done before the start of the new season.
Installing the screws requires drilling through to original windshield which I don't mind.

Cool, i ended up drilling through the middle of the 4 velcros and put the bolts in the middle of the velcro tabs, because my windshield bolts were to long for the screens to be flush. Tested to $2.60... didnt fly off...

Re: New K1300R - It's ready!!!

Here is another picture from last fall with the newly installed AC Schnitzer pillion cover.
The paint is not exactly what it should be as my paint shop could not figure out the proper paint code and scanned it instead.
Would any of you have the proper paint code for the Acid Green that can be used by most paint shop other than BMW...

Looked to fit my oil cooler guard last week, but was worried about snapping things!! Could any of you advise me regarding loosening off the top left hand fairing, to enable me to access the oil cooler bolt hidden by this? I undid the fairing bolt at the top (next to the tank) and the bolt which holds the indicator on. The fairing piece looks like it is also attached / supported inside to a small (3/4 inch) pole, over which fits a rubber? grommet. To be free of this, it looks like the top fairing needs to slide forward (about and inch), but I was struggling to do this. Is anything else needing to be undone before I start pulling things apart?
(Apols if this sounds a bit lame, as I'm sure this should be quite easy!! - in my defence I only have one fully fit arm - left arm has brachial plexus injury following a head on crash in 2009).
Many thanks for any assistance.
Cheers,

Andrew.

Ps - planning on second attempt tomorrow / weekend

Re: New K1300R - It's ready!!!

Hi Doc
I’ve been looking at your mirrors, they look better than bar ends and keep the mirror in about the same spot IMHO.
I’m guessing they are the Rizoma Dynamics? I understand they need an adapter for each side, would you have a number for them.

I’ll probably put a ‘lip’ on my screen eventually, I’m hoping to find a carbon fibre screen that’s an exact copy of the stock, I feel that would look better.

Cheers

Here you go:
Dynamic mirrors RIZBS080B
Mirror adaptors RIZBS711B

Good luck - I like them. They're quite small, but get them properly aligned and all is well. Nice "blued" colour to the glass also.

Cheers 😎

You are able to find pintcodes by entering www.realoem.com. Look at BodyEquipment/Painted parts. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=51_8144

In this case the Acid-Green is listed as WM26. At least in Europe you can go to a Glasurit dealer, and by entering WM26 in his system, the different colors on your bike will come up with proper colorcode and he will be able to mix it to you.

If no Glasurit dealer or equvivelant is available (Glasurit is a najor company, now purchased by BASF, and many other brands of paints have listings for the Glasurit codes).

Anyway, if no joy locally, this company in UK will ship the paint you want:
http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en-gb/colours.php#makeid=16&modelid=344&prodyear=2011&colourscheme =18323

Edit: When searching the Glasurite website the paint comes up as M26. Enter M26 in the top left Code: box and push the 'StartSearch' button

Re: New K1300R - It's ready!!!

That red bike looks amazing!!!!
I’m about to paint mine.
What’s the color code?

If painted in red. What’d be a good color for the wheels ? Other than black.

I was thinking very dark blue wheels and a dark milky blue for the tank and other bits.

BTW. Where can I find a SS bolt kit.
I purchased one for my GS from Chris Shaw Stainless, but no love my my K12R.

I'm not sure re the colour code - will check out in the manual when back from work. Re SS, might be worth googling Pro Bolt?
Cheers,
Andrew.

Oh forgot- the standard wheel colour is a sort of grey / graphite colour. Imo it matches the red great, but looks like you gonna be a bit more adventurous!!
