1994 K75 Exhaust Sleeve

Postby Bill Gorry » Fri Nov 23, 2018 3:44 pm

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I spent $5.50 on a sheet of copper to make a sleeve between the header and the muffler. I tried using copper gasket goo. It didn't hold up. After some adjusting the copper to size, I went for a test run today. No more popping.
I have added connectors to run my Gerbings gear. On today's test run I plugged in the controller for the under jacket. It worked fine. I also ran the K with the running lights and the heated grips too. The whole system is doing alright.

Cheers,
Bill

No I talked to had it. Not Capital. Not at Bob’s. I wouldn’t mind buying a spare if you know who has them.
My man at Bob’s said that in the future a Swiss company may do a run.

BMW is currently selling a mineral paper gasket for the K75, similar to the graphite paper ones they sell for the Monolever Airheads. For a K75, I have in the past cut down an R100GS muffler gasket which is the sheet aluminum type. R100GS is about 45mm ID and the K bike is about 41mm. The MAX microfiche has pics of both.

41mm. I’ll remember that.
Thanks for the offer and the helps. I believe I’ll keep using my sheet of copper. After all, I’ve got $5.50 invested in that thing.
Cheers,
