can you hear the fuel pump running? you can make you own injector cleaner using a garden sprayer and one of those pocket jump start packs or even a 9v battery
Yes. The DIY solutions I've read about all seem like a PITA and like I should just send the injectors out for rebuilding, or get the Bosch Ford equivalents

Have you completely rinsed the tank yet? I highly advise you do. There's a stabilizer built into it that falls apart over time. It gets absolutely fucking everywhere.

Yes. I poured out about 1.5 gallons of crap gas that stank and it left an amber residue and some debris. I got 95% of the debris out and a lot of the residue by hosing the shit out of it with carb cleaner and wiping what I could with paper towels. Swirled it a couple more times with 1/3 of a gallon of fresh gas, drained again, and now has about 2 gal of new premium with a bottle of Techron in it. Also new Bosch fuel filter.

Ok tight. The routing of all the hoses confused me but at least there's solid access point from the top hatch. One thing that fucked me up for a while is the hose going to the FPR that's bad. Also those little vac caps on the fuel rail need to be perfect in order to function right. I'm surprised that you can't get it to hit at all without the spray. Those injectors must be completely frozen

I just have to get off my dead ass and look at the injectors. I mean 7+ years of sitting, even in a protected environment, can't be great. Also replaced the Z hose (crankcase breather) as the original was split. Since you're here, how do I remove the injectors? Pull the rail?

I never actually removed mine but yeah the rail comes off. Chances are the orings below them are dust so I'd order them before taking it apart. I'd be suspicious of other stuff than the injectors though. Seems rare. If you have a Facebook the "bmw k75 k100 owners / lovers" group is invaluable. Those old dudes really know their shit.
