    I found the following post in another board. I don't know the validity of the post but I can't see anyone gaining anything from it if it weren't true. Can anyone confirm this? Does any other company make soft tops for the K5?

    That's the way it is. No more Kayline tops.
    I was going to buy one this spring, so I'm hopeing another companie buys them out and starts making them again.
    You might be able to fine one in stock at a supplier some where if you don't mind a white top.
