Home > K75 > RT conversion parts

I repaired a K75RT fairing for installation onto my own K75 (standard, low-seat).  There are an unbelievable number of parts involved!  Having access to a complete RT model for parts (as I did) is the only feasible way to do this; trying to find all of the parts individually would be prohibitively expensive.  The parts needed are listed here; as you can see the cost (even used) of the parts is very high.  Most prices are approximate ones, based on what I've seen.  Some are SWAGs but most of them are pretty real.  List prices will be over a thousand dollars more!  Used, there are about $1600 in fairing parts alone and more for the seat conversion.

Fairing repair details and windshield choices are on separate pages.

Installation:

  1. Remove the seat, tank, mirrors, radiator/fan/hoses, horn, air filter, housing, headlight, headlight housing, computer, computer box, and seat, mounting hardware. Except the pod, computer, and air filter housing, all of these get replaced with other parts.
  2. Install foam and plastic baffles around the engine, install radiator and filter housing.
  3. Install pod support bracket, main fairing support bracket, horns, pod. There are "buttons" which must be installed in the steering stop to further limit steering travel, or else the fork tubes will hit the fairing bracket. Also, the wiring harness is different: The RT wiring harness has a single connector to power the horns and turn signals from the main harness (there's a sub-harness for the bracket and parts mounted on it). The Standard is wired differently since the horn is by the radiator and the turn signals and pod are wired with the headlight. We needed to fabricate some adapters, but it all worked.
  4. Install the side mounting brackets, pre-assemble the upper fairing (headlight, turn signals, mirror hardware) and mount it. Fasten the radiator cover to the upper and route the brake line. Install the under panel (under the upper fairing, between the fairing and the radiator shroud).
  5. Install the tank. The width of the mounting lugs was wrong (too wide on my bike) and fortunately I remembered from the IBMWR list that the extra length can be easily removed. I pulled the extensions out (they are expansion pins) and re-installed the rubber supports onto the  stubs.
  6. Install the lower fairings. Make sure the blind nuts for the windshield are on before installing the speaker panel (upper fairing inner liner). The windshield needed some jury-rigging since the hardware was incomplete (different windshields use different hardware) but we got it all together.
  7. Install computer box, computer, and seat hardware. This includes the latch assembly, hinges, and you also need to remove the rear clips for the old low-seat. Install side panels (using grease on the rubber grommets). Pop the mirrors on.
