Repair Guidance / Re: Replacing Rear Shock
« Last post by Martin on Today at 06:15:12 AM »
Place the bike on the centre stand, chock up the back wheel. You need to chock it so that the old shock just pulls off, remove old shock and fit new shock. Do not let the final drive drop as you can tear the boot, less chance of doing this if you leave the wheel on.
Regards Martin.

The Motobrick Workshop / Re: 87K100, elec issue

No, but I will. Thanks. I know there is power to the starter relay, but none on the other terminal, even with starter button depressed. Could this be the issue? Thanks, jerry
The other side of the starter relay connector (Brown/Green) is a ground so I wouldn't expect to measure any potential relative to frame ground.  But, the ICU does get power through the kill switch so not turning over with the start switch pushed is possible.

The main ground for your bike would be under the tank no 9 as in the fault finding process. These need to be removed and cleaned. Wire bush, emery or whatever your choice but must be corrosion free before refit.

Slight problem . . . .indicators have stopped working, hit the right turn all 4 lights flash same for left and the turn cancel switch. Hazards work. had a spare flasher unit and BMU swapped them over , No change . search Motobrick, check fuses all good but no power either side of  #7. So is my next move pull the starter and clean or will backspin suffice . My understanding of electrics is limited give me spanners any day. Any suggestions gratefully received
Remove and clean or replace the starter brushes it is quite common with K series beemers. Its all part of the earthing of these bikes.

Repair Guidance / Replacing Rear Shock
« Last post by jsngrimm on Today at 02:18:35 AM »
Probably very stupid, but quick and easy question. My '87 K100RS has an aftermarket shock on it, but it's leaking oil, the bushings are really shot (I can turn/wiggle it side to side a pretty scary amount), and the spring is rusted, so I bought a replacement. I'm just wondering the best way to jack the back of the bike up to install the new one, I'm used to UJMs with dual shocks where I can just change one at  a time, any ideas?  :bmwsmile

I believe that the fluid block could mask wear. When checking the bearings removal of the screws takes the damping out of the equation. It allows the steering to turn without any friction from the grease. As you turn the whole fluid bloc turns rather than turning through the grease.
