New member: K100 custom build
« on: September 29, 2018, 02:19:59 PM »
Hello good people. I bought this 85 K100rs 2 years ago. I slowly fixed it up and customized it over the first year. Over this last year Iíve just been enjoying riding it. Couple weeks ago it died on me and am trying to diagnose it with no success so far. Iíll create a different thread about that issue though. Anyway, here are some pics:

.













And now to diagnosing:

greetings...

really like those riding boots... are those race spec...

abouts the reason it died... could be because the seat loop is missing... it is an integral apparatus as it pertains to the electronics...

search for the flow chart...

and do this too...

Thanks J,
Theyíre from the Vans race catalog. Slip on for high speed, low drag.

Looking through that link now. Going to order a can of deoxit and do those recommended things soon.

Those were called tenny pumps in a simpler era. They were worn by lounge lizards. I'm glad to see that renegades have upgraded their status. A resourceful person can collect them among the twisted metal shards and minced plastic fairing scrap left by failed stunters in expressway medians and along road shoulders of this great nation. The colors and sizes don't always match though.

Welcome, erik! Thanks for the photos. More new members should follow your lead in that regard. Your moto looks like a stripped and ripped ride, except that it doesn't run but that condition is only temporary. With what you learn here, you'll be back on the road and shedding your shoes in no time flat.  :2thumbup:   I'm fairly certain some members here would like to know the source of the headlight nacelle.

I wept because I had no radials until I met a man who had no splines.

Thanks for the welcome. Admittedly, the shoes are my go-to for running errands and I didnít even realize I wasnít wearing my riding shoes until already on my way to the ride. Wear your safety gear kids.
The headlight fairing is a Harley part. Covered up that huge instrument cluster pretty nicely I think.

Your K seems to hang out with some exotica.  That suicide door Lincoln caught my eye, haven't seen one of those since that peanut farmer ruled the nation.  Ahh, the good old days.....
