    Removal of SHED System

    I just picked up a 1993 R100GS in mint condition with 14,700 miles on it.
    It's a 2 owner bike from North Carolina that was very well looked after.

    This GS has never been touched complete with the SHED System intact.
    From what I have read they can be very problematical and since I believe in simplicity, I would like to remove it.

    Can you spell out the removal steps.

    I tried to find the article without luck.

    Thanks in advance!

    Are you speaking of the Pulse Air System?
    It's easy to remove.

    Thanks, but it is called the Shed System that consists of electrical solenoids under the starter cover.

    Mine from prior owner was disconnected at the electrics to the solenoids. I went in and removed the solenoids and associated plumbing.
    I know from research you have to plug the tiny nipple just to the left of the starter on top of the crankcase. I used one of the small
    vacuum plugs you buy from your local auto store. Used some JB Weld on the exterior of the nipple and installed the plug. Works great.
    Otherwise, I had to plug the now extra (2) ports in my airbox and used JB Weld for same. After that it is pretty much done. Only other
    thing is my starter cover was now full of holes so I just bought a new cover from Bob's. It's the "European" version as the overseas versions
    don't (or didn't) use the shed fuel system. Pretty easy if I do say so. Good luck. Oh, only other tip I found out was that I had to pull the
    airbox to get the starter top cover off first. 3 bolts; 1 into top of transmission and 2 into back end of engine (top).
