    It's starts!

    The wiring harness is very tough to trace! I'm amazed at all of the plug connectors that aren't connected to anything. I assume they are for LT options my RS doesn't have (stereo, heated grips,...

    Thanks D! Life finally gave me a minute to look into this.

    In testing like you suggested, with the injectors unplugged, ECU unplugged, Ignition on, I found one pin connecter at 1V, all others 0V....

    '87 K100RS no start, spraying fuel!

    First let me say I have researched the excellent trouble shooting guide for this, but I my issue isn't addressed. Let me give the scenario. The bike has 155kmi and has otherwise been running...

    New Tube?

    Further discussion with my Yamaha friend. The shop owner said as policy they don't install new tires with old tubes. If I owned the shop, I'd probably have the same policy in our law suit happy...

    New Tire...New Tube???

    Ok, this has nothing to do with BMWs, but I had to toss it out there. I have a friend that rides a cherry '79 Yamaha 750 triple with cast alloy wheels that require tubes. He's already burned...

    6 cylinder/ Really?

    You know, I can't think of why anyone would need more horsepower than the 4 cylinder K1300S already has. If 170 doesn't do it for you, are you really going to be any faster with more weight, width,...

    Really?

    You Sir are a Dork. Buell did things their own way, and they took on the world doing it. Say what you want about the Daytona Superbike and Buell's displacement advantage (but do mention the weight...

    Anyone have that cool logo?

    You know, that kind of Kokapeli style rider on a bike with fairing, used with regularity on many things BMW.

    I need one ~3-4" tall for a memorial for a fallen member for the back of the helmet.

    Gotta Disagree!

    I have a K100RS, and am 6'4", 35" inseam. The bike fits me better than anything else I've been on. Quite roomy. Matter of fact, when I went to test ride it, the seller said "you are the first guy...

    Flip a Lever

    I have one for the 2 valve. It was listed to fit a K100 and K100LT. I assumed it would fit the RS, but as it turns out, the bars are too close to the tank, so you'd need bar backs, standard or LT...
  15. Leaking K

    My '87 appears to be oozing from the same place, what I would call the crank cover, the black part with the stripes and the BMW logo. It's what on a normal engine would be the oil pan. It also...

    I need to trade up because my bike should be shot. Not shot as in gunned down, it should be worn out. It's an '87 K100RS with over 140kmi. I say it should be shot, but it actually runs very well. ...

    Tire Mileage

    Are you refering to longtidal or transverse radius? If you are thinking I'm flat-spotting them with the brakes, that's not it. I don't use brakes. That would be admitting defeat. If you are...
  20. Me88 vs. BT 45 Whiskers...

    The whisker debate had me curious. Because of the shape of the Metzler, you cannot get down to the last row of whiskers on the rear...not in two sets worth of bonafide Sport Touring. The last 1/4"...
  21. BT vrs ME880

    I've run both the Metzler and Bt45s on my K. I like the sporting nature of the Bridgeston much better, as they roll into corners easier, stick well, and the bike just seems to ride smoother. ...

    Metzler Marathon vs. Bridgestone Battlax

    I don't know how you guys get so many miles on those Metzlers. I've run 2 sets, both 88 and 880s. The last rear 880 was almost gone at 8000 when I picked up a nail. The front has 9000, and has...
