## Abstract

A self Morita equivalence over an algebra $B$, given by a $B$-bimodule $E$, is thought of as a line bundle over $B$. The corresponding Pimsner algebra $O_{E}$ is then the total space algebra of a noncommutative principal circle bundle over $B$. A natural Gysin-like sequence relates the $KK$-theories of $O_{E}$ and of $B$. Interesting examples come from $O_{E}$ a quantum lens space over $B$ a quantum weighted projective line (with arbitrary weights). The $KK$-theory of these spaces is explicitly computed and natural generators are exhibited.
