Thank you very much.

I don't think that's correct. I think that the K-1 uses a 3.5-mm port for cable-release remote use. The earlier Pentax DSLRs use a 2.5-mm port (like my K10D), which use the CS-205 remote. The K-1 needs the CS-310 remote with the 3.5-mm plug, I think. (I am about to buy a K-1 so am not positive about this; if anybody knows for sure, please let me know.)

I'm using the same remote on my K1 that I bought with either my *istD or K10. I'm pretty sure its the CS-205.
The plug measures 2.5mm using a micrometer.
I use Pocket Wizards to run my studio lights, but I mount the trigger unit on the camera hot shoe.
