K100 gsxr conversion Finally finished
« on: May 14, 2019, 11:35:36 AM »
Thanks to all that has helped on the way knowing or un knowingly and with the help from this site I have finally finished my build. She was a stock 84 k100 rs with 16000miles on the clock ( Im uk ) and have gone to town, engine is stock and just needed oil pump and service as stood for a long time. Full respray in alpine white 300  with airbrush decals, cognito moto trees on 2mm spacer On stem, gsxr k4 rebuilt forks, 320mm brembo disks and pads, k5 callipers on 5mm spacer, brembo k100 rear disk and pads, braided lines, new k1100 Rs front master cylinder , gsxr k4 front wheel, k1100 Rs 18 rear wheel, conti road attack 2 shoes, twisted brother seat unit, side exit exhaust, mlock keyless ignition and koso speedo, universal nose fairing made to fit, 6.5 custom front light, odyssey gel battery. Be interesting to hear feedback and hope any of this helps any future minded people. My advice is its not easy or for the faint hearted but you dont know what you can do until you try. Best wishes to all
On a follow up, the geometry is roughly the same as a k1100 rs, just with 45mm drop front and back from standard, feels very planted on the road but still scrubbing in so give it time. You certainly notice the 14 mm offset while using the 18 wheel, left turns are slow and boggy right turns are quick, cost you must pay to run a radial rubber. All in I am very happy with how she rides, the seat on the other hand will need some more work, I might want to reproduce at some point.

Damn, that looks good!  Reminds me of a K version of the new R-nine-T, very professional job.

Great looking build. I like the crossover exhaust, kind of reminds me of how Buell's weave around. Only thing missing is an AGIP sticker ;)

Max,
Dam, that looks fantastic, way to stick it it out. So many started and to many  given up on. If you don't mind me asking, how much does it weigh ?

Thank you for the kind comments, I am very pleased with how the build came out and rides. Regarding the weight I am unsure, I would imagine quite a bit lighter than stock. I only have bathroom scales and my mrs would flip, was bad enough when she caught me with the painted engine covers in the oven, food tasted better for a few weeks after 😂😂😂

Go to the local dump where they have vehicle scales.  Drive up to the kiosk and ask the attendant what the weight is.  Subtract your weight from the number.
