K75/K100 Regular to Low Seat Conversion

Introduction:

Converting a K75 or K100 from a regular seat to a low seat is a bit more complicated than just swapping seats.  There are quite a few different parts necessary.

L-Jetronic Holder:

Since the low seat locking hardware mounts to the frame below the rider's seat you need to replace the "brain holder" and toolbox under the seat with one that does not have the built in toolbox like the one for the regular seat has. Part 61351459782. #9 in the diagram below:

Battery Covers:

You will no longer need the battery side covers.

Tank Surround:

For a BMW low seat you will also need what I refer to as a "rubber tank surround" (BMW name is Covering Fuel Tank) and several parts that attach it to the tank. (Note that Corbin low seat setups do not use these parts.)

Corbin Low Seat

Only for BMW low seat, not Corbin low seat: For a BMW low seat with the tank surround that is colored purple above (part 16112308660), two of the side attaching pieces that are yellow in the diagram above(16112308481) and one of the center tank attaching pieces shown in red above (16112308173.)

Mounting Hardware & Lock:

Unlike the regular seat that folds up, the low seat lifts off and has different mounting hardware and a different lock. (The lock can be rekeyed to match your ignition key.)

Here's a picture of the low seat mounting hardware and lock:

The two hooks attach to the tail cowl and the rest of the hardware attaches to the frame below the front of the seat.

 

And, aside from the low seat itself, you'll also need the locking loop that attaches to the underside of the seat:
