Anybody have a BMW K100?

So if I go looking at these, are there specific items I should ask about on these, outside normal service? I've heard these things are damn near bullet proof, but everything has it's "must do's". Thanks for any input!

Much better bike to ride than the 2 valve models.
Points to watch for Clutch especially if it's a city bike,keep clearance at the clutch lever or it's like slipping the clutch by riding the clutch pedal on a Subie.
Gearbox uses tapered bearings if they lose preload it damages the Gears and Burns and damages the shift forks they are not cheap to replace.
Later 4 valve models have the better paralever rear suspension like the K 1100 models.
Properly maintained they will last a very long time and are great to ride,the K1100 models do use a rubber mounted engine that is noticeably smoother than the K100 models.
