Project Classic Motobricks / Re: 1987 K100LT Resto - from bits to brick
« Last post by FlatSix on Today at 09:35:02 AM »
When you get it out, post the size.  I have a bunch of them laying in my tool chest.  One of them might work for you.

Thank you very much!

The tools are on order so I took advantage of the break to work on refinishing the timing chain, camshaft and crankshaft covers.  I guess it is true that the obstacle is the way, the impediment to action enhances action. 

In case anyone needs to order the same or a few other tools Ken was quick to respond.  His info is below:

The covers required some sanding, careful masking the paint and clear high temp semi-gloss.  I think they came out OK but not perfect.  A little dust flew into the garage and shows in the picture but they were dry and cured at that point. 

More parts arrived at the end of last week including the two new tires.  Powdercoater says the wheels are ready so I will be picking them up soon.  We shall see!

Fuel injectors function check....pull a electrical connect and check for voltage jump on a pin in the connector while trying the starter?
Almost. It should have ~12.5V ignition On, not running, then pulsating negative voltage when cranking. Remove fuel pump fuse to assure the engine won't start.

 Check the fuel injectors' function. Are you following a troubleshooting guide?

No not following a guide, I usually do the check for spark/fuel and then work my down the path of the failure of those. I looked at the top reason list here on MB for no start. Cleaned the 4 pin, did the starter cleaning trick, ignition switch seems good, never had any random electrical problems in the past, up til now it has been solid since I owned it for over 5,000 miles. Is there a more detail guide here on MB I should follow?

« Last post by freed on Today at 03:13:33 AM »
Hi,

I am building 1985 K100 caferacer and I have some dificulties with led taillight. Its some chinese assembly and has three wires.
I got it working like this: ignition switch on there is really dim light, pushing brake makes it brighter.
What wire is what in the bike? Or how should it be connected to the bike harness?
Thanks!

I'll have to see if I can find an OZ to US dictionary. I don't know how come you guys managed to deviate so far from standard English.
Regards Martin.

I assume usage of the word globe isn't used in the US when referring  to light emmitters.
It's regional. Around here they're called orbicular illuminators (orbills).
