The Motobrick Workshop / centerstand "feet"
« Last post by schrocketeer on Today at 09:38:16 AM »
Is there an insert for the centerstand, to fill the holes, and provide a resting surface, other than the steel tubing?
It seems a piece of hard plastic (nylon, ABS, etc.) could go in to the hole with a slight interference fit, and then have a flat spot on the bottom to rest on.

Reminds me of the Kawasaki factory shop manual for my 1968 F3 Bushwacker.  In the chapter on preparation for competition was this nugget of advice regarding the chain:  "caulk the chain continuously in advance of loss"

I must admit whoever did the translation did an infinitely better job than I would have done.

You were warned in Reply#1, Bryan. It's just the way things sugar off with these pumps. Embrace it!

Yeah Laitch, and I heeded that warning VERY seriously lest I created the failure during installation.  I was extremely careful throughout the entire procedure.  Like I said, it would have gotten a green light from me if I had worked on it for NASA.  Seriously.  I was careful to the point of saying to myself, "Now Bryan, you're just being ridiculous, here...". 

Oh well.  I've collected my senses again, pulled all of the screwdrivers and wrenches out of the drywall ( :eek:) and am ready to start all over again!

Project Custom Motobricks / K100RS "Modern" Build
« Last post by catch_me on July 16, 2018, 07:06:39 PM »
Hey guys,

Thought I'd start a thread as I build my 1991 K100RS to fit into the more modern era and my personal style. Picked it up as a 2 owner RS with ~47000 miles on it, and LT fairings fit to it somewhere along the way. I stripped the fairings off to find everything from mouse nests to hornet nests hiding under them. The plan is to go with a more modern naked bike look with hand made fairings. My inspirations are bikes like LaDini, Mike Flores K100, "The Hornet", and similar bikes. I plan on keeping as many parts during the build BMW as I can, and therefore am converting the front forks to a S1000RR setup which I already have. I plan to retain the original throttle tube and right hand controls as well as the heated grips. I am planning modifying the K100 throttle body to adapt to the 2 cable throttle tube (being an engineer and having a machine shop at your disposal can cause me to make projects more challenging than that need to be). I am removing the stock ABS, and I plan at this point to use a motogadget gauge, so the wiring should be fun to figure out. So far this is where she is at!

I have a Russell DayLong seat on a 1994 K75c. 
The seat is of the low configuration. It will come with the tank low seat tank cover and all of the hardware to mount and use the seat including the latches, rear seat tabs, and the seat lock. I will get a key made from the original.
Seat seems to be in pretty nice condition but shows some wear along the seams. There are no tears or punctures in the seat covering.
Like to get $250.00 for seat and hardware plus shipping from 85254.

The tootling of my Bricks melodious 140 Db airhorn brings on heart attacks, causes small children to cry and dogs to bolt at the speed of a thousand startled Gazelles. :hehehe

Nah, it's more like a sausage roll, sans the flakey pastry, stuffed in a savory donut. Once I went in for a fruit donut and Liisa the baker had made them with the 'other' dough = half price.

I remember having an éclair at Harrods when I was a child. Asked Granny if I could have another, ever so politely ... yesss!
