We present a 23 yr compilation of V-band differential photometry for the Pleiades K dwarf HII 1883 (V660 Tau). HII 1883 has a rotational period〈Prot〉of ~ 0.235 d and displays significant rotational modulation due to non-uniform surface brightness or "starspots". Preliminary work with 17 years of data yields a cycle period (Pcyc) of ~ 8 years and rotational shear (ΔProt/〈Prot〉) considerably less than solar. With additional data available we compare newly determined Pcyc and ΔProt/〈Prot〉values with those of other stars, including HII 1883 in a larger study of magnetic activity in single cool dwarfs.
