What did I do to the Motobrick today.  Continued preparation for a fresh coat of paint, lets say the Previous owner was to say the least rather liberal with the application of the last coat that it had. (I think he used a mop)

I have already been through about 10 sheets of 180 grit wet and dry sandpaper and the tips of a few fingers.
I have had to carefully clean all the paint of the grill section as it is cracking away in places so I can't even give it a quick coat of black because it will crack of and leave me with whits spots all over the grill. It had some sort of insulation glued ti the inside of the side panels and main part if the fairing so that has to be removed so I can get a good coat of colour round the edges.
I reckon that you should be able to apply for a retrospective abortion order on some people.
Once it is finished in a brand new coat of mystic rot it should look just dandy.
I did score of Oz fleabay a very good 3 row core radiator from a very early K100 so I should have no cooling problems in future.

Got the '97 unburied out of the back of the garage on Friday, installed an aux fan switch on Saturday, today I cleaned and serived the windscreen rails.
Got some techron concentrate for the fuel to finish the rest of this tank then I'll do the rest of the spring service some time next week.

`bout gettin the oldies out of the darkest corner in the garage..............
Got an `86 K100RS which have been standing untouched in 7 years 9 months.
Last saturday I got the idea to check if it could be scared back to life.

Changed all fluids, filters, sparkplugs, battery and added some foggin oil to
the cylinders, ignition on...hittin` the button....it fired up directly!!!!

I did expect a lot frozen parts and leaks everywhere....but just minor.
Rear master did need a little bit extra push, but no leak.
Front master very minor leak (just sweating), but gaskets never been changed.
Thats all!!!

All that have been done beside normal service parts during the years is:
At 155K km new gaskets and fluid container on rear master.
At 190K km new cam chain and rails, front rotors and starter brushes.
A whole lot of rear brake switches (have to blame the salted roads for that).

A quite amazing 25 year old bike which have passed 200K km.

Done some afternoon trips since the start up, no problems so far. ;D ;D ;D
But the (sadly?) conclusion  is...this bike ain`t that old...but the owner is.

Found a screw to replace the allen wrench I had substituting for the clutch lever pivot pin I lost somewhere.  The clutch actually works without it, just sloppy.  Good as new now  ;D

In preparation for Motomayhem I trimmed down some 6 LED light bars and installed them in the sides of a tail light lens I'll be installing on the Mickibrick.  I also replaced the brake and tail light bulbs with SMD LED bulbs.

I also wired up one normally open PCB relay and three normally closed PCB relays.

The normally open relay will be used for an altitude switch.  Since I'm using a three-way OEM switch to control both the hazards and the altitude plug, the normally open relay isolates that circuit from the hazard circuit.

Two of the normally closed relays will be used to invert the LED turn signals so that they double as running lights that are always on but flash off when the turn signals are used.

The third normally closed relay will be used on the added tail light LEDs so that they serve as tail lights but will flash off when my brake light flasher flashes on to give a "wagging" effect like I have on the K1.


Added tail light wagging LEDs:



Wired up PCB relays:



What the wagging LED tail lights will look like:

1... installed a eram 2 stage 12v supercharger...

Wait, a supercharger and nitrous?  Why not a turbo instead?

That should get a bit of attention from those behind you.

Hey Duck,

Cool stuff. Do you have a standard supplier for the PCB relays?

I usually buy them off of Fleabay from China.

I just checked on Fleabay - 15 for $1/ea

http://cgi.ebay.com/15-ea-AROMAT-DS2E-S-DC12V-Relay-12V-DPDT-DIP-NOS-/200626880671?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb64b409f#ht_500wt_948

You can order them from places like Newark and Mouser too.  Just search for 12V DPDT

The fender is early 90's vintage Parabellum "LSR" (land speed record) Pretty rare nowadays.  Thanks for the offer duck.  PM sent!

After overcoming a supply issue, CA Touring finally shipped a CarbTune my direction. Hooked 'er up and did the deed. She ran noticeably smoother during the commute today. YeeHaw as we say 'round these parts.

Fully warmed up idle (fan was kicking in) @ just a shade under 1000 rpm. Needed to back out #1 about 2 turns to bring it down to the adjustment range of #4.

LED-ified the front reflectors
Following in Duck's footprints to put LEDs everywhere possible.




Wires will exit the bottom once installed.



Mighty clean solder job if I do say so.


It even works!


Opted to completely remove the back half of the reflector rather than cut holes for the LED elements.



Looks nice from the bench. Everything is sealed with clear RTV.


And the light was good.


Just wired as running lights at the moment though the final plan is to have them also flash with the turn signals.
