Question about 2000 BMW R 1100 R
If the rings are worn, you'd be getting blue smoke out of the exhaust, and a loss of power. More likely you may need a new head gasket -- is the leak coming from around where the engine block stops and the the cylinder heads start? Or you may need new oil seals around the camshafts. Clean the oil off carefully, take a short speed run, and see if you can pinpoint where the leak starts from

without changing out your fuelline I would not reccomend to go for a higher pressure and flow.
About the fuelpump....sometimes going for the cheap option is in the longrun more expensive.

the K75 has very reliable engine .. its unusual for it to fail in this way .. the frozen rings would suggest overheating and thats possible if the radiator fan fails (that happens often before your 80,000) .. many of the pre 1990 k75s would smoke after storing for awhile .. that was a ring gap positioning problem .. that was corrected in newer models .. the smoke however would not have damaged the cylinders .. maybe in the extreme could foul a plug .. is it possible that someone put something in your gas tank ??.. or could it have been run without oil/water or perhaps the wrong type oil (like transmission fluid) ... that engine should have lasted longer than most cars .. nice smooth bike ..

The tyre could be worn like that simply because the previous owner liked right hand corners more than left or his common journey had more right hand bends.
But it could be a sign of something more serious.
It could be that the frame is bent at the steering head.(Or the swing arm is bent or swing arm bearings/bushes worn out)
A wheel alignment test should verify this.
It could also be a front suspension fault i.e. un-even adjustment of suspension settings (if it is adjustable) or incorrect fluid levels in the forks, or a bent fork tube
To check the steering head raise the front wheel up off the ground, grab the forks and pull back and forth. If you can feel movement then they are not adjusted properly.
Now turn the steering from side to side. The movement should be smooth and not notchy.
If any of these symptoms are apparent then the steering head bearings need adjusting/replacing.
To check the the swing arm bearings/bushes raise the rear wheel off the ground.
Grab the rear wheel and try to move it from side to side.
If there is movement the bearings/bushes are worn out.
To check the wheel alignment,place the bike on a level flat surface,loop a long piece of (thin) string around the back tyre(at about the 5 or six o'clock position viewed from the left).
so you have two pieces of equal length, long enough to reach past the front wheel.
Now pull the strings to the front of the bike.
Now position the front wheel straight ahead.
Now kneeling(or sitting on the floor at the front of the bike), place a string in each hand.
Now looking to the back wheel move the strings together until the string just touches the front edge of the rear tyre on each side.
Now holding that position, check the distance between the string and the edges of the front tyre to see they are equal.
If the gap is not even the bike has a twist,bend,missalignment somewhere.
If this seems a bit difficult you could try taking it to your local dealer where they can check it for you.
An experienced mechanic can perform these checks pretty quickly.
It usually takes me about half an hour maximum.
I hope that you find this information helpful

sounds like you need to look at the carbs there not getting a good fule flow to them,,,,check this first,,you need to adjust both carbs to open the same amount and this can only be done on the throtle cable's at the carb,,,if your bike feels a bit lower on power than your palls,,do a compreshion test on both bikes,,if his has more compreshion than yours thats why he can wip you on hills!
