Here is the picture of the cover removed and the back of the switch, any ideas?
Describe exactly the colors of each wire and which wires are joined together at each plug terminal. The dirty condition of the wires in the photo doesn't aid in their identification on a schematic.

C'mon, Laitch, that's what makes this so much fun.  Use your creativity.

Duhh :idea2: it goes to the Flux capacitor. He has hit the switch and gone back in time, that's why he is not answering. He is currently being chased by Velociraptors and once safe he'll answer. :sip:

Or, he could be minutes into the future, reading these posts, and thinking "I really stepped in it this time." I think it's a "gift" from the engineers who designed the brick, many of whom spent their later years designing wee-toys with intricate bits for Kinder Eggs.

The Laminar Lip is very effective if you have helmet buffeting issues. Also inexpensive. I have had a couple and they work.

Looks like you got a rather rare Fox Twin Clicker shock.  NLA.  But rebuildable.  Nice.  Adjustable compression and rebound.

Will this throttle assembly/tube fit 1985 k100rs. Please help :)
« Reply #35 on: March 29, 2019, 02:27:35 PM »
Hey guys,
Still working on the bike. I bought some vortex strap-ons and need to buy a new throttle assembly. Will this one from domino work? Also would i be able to use oem throttle cables or do I need to buy new ones.Thanks in advance for the insight.

Also a couple pics of the engine aftere hours of cleaning. I figured out that wd40 and a wire brush on drill is the only way to go.

Be aware that with Domino/Tomaselli products, 22mm can often mean 22.2mm, not 22.0mm, so aftermarket controls mounted on a BMW bar are likely to be loose until shimmed.

You are right, stupid question. Just looked at the old throttle tube that I took off.

Is this normal? Oil leaking from Clutch lever (rear of engine) ???
« Reply #41 on: July 29, 2019, 12:23:35 AM »
Hey guys,
I am still working on the cafe race build and have removed the clutch cable. Now there seems to be oil leaking from between the rubber boot gasket and the clutch lever at the rear of the engine. It looks like when I removed the tension the lever separated from the rubber boot, it will go in freely but there is oil that leaked out. Can anyone please elaborate?

Thank you in advance.

Yes, that's normal.  It's gear oil that bathes the clutch pushrod, which seeps past the thrust bearing. 

Too bad that you didn't support the actuator arm when you removed the clutch cable as required.  The spring inside the boot is too strong for the rubber material and the boot tears.  You'll have to replace that part now and its not cheap.

Thanks for the heads up, do you mean replace just the rubber boot? I ordered one just in case but it didn't look like the old one had any tares. When I install it, do I have to squirt any oil in there or just replace the boot?

Thanks

Just replace the boot.  But do it just as you are assembling for the final time.  You don't want to make this mistake twice.  If you really have to install it, then make sure to lash the actuator arm to the case of the transmission with binding wire so that it applies slight pressure to the clutch rod.  That way, the arm is taking the spring pressure and not the rubber boot.

No need to oil upon assembly.
