Charlie - if you can find someone who does vapour-blasting, that would solve the problem. I've had three engines vapour-blasted from scratch i.e. just the grease and shite removed from bare alloy (no good if they're painted).



The good thing about the finish, particularly on a sump, is that vapour-blasting actually closes up the pits and pores preventing corrosion from getting easily restarted and stopping crap from sticking so easily.

One you get it all perfectly cleaned and assembled you should entomb it in a large clear acrylic block so that it can't even get dusty. Very Happy

just on the off chance

I have to change the serial number on the sump , so that my serial number here in aussie is registered 

does any one have the right stamps for this , loan or buy …..  just need  the number "7" and the number "0"

engine covers update , made satin some 2 years  ago , took out some sandcast marks and a bit brighter now , there are still some legacy deep marks in the crank cover (typical stuff with fairings and rubber mating against the aluminium , drop events etc )
still some polishing to do , ...after its assembled , will do

should fit in well with the updated sump eh ?

shims for valves arrived today ..woohoo ...so decided to do a bit more work



cut off old and hardened rubber from the cover bolts and installed new








reassembled the timing gear and rolled it over a couple of times ...all ok and valve clearances are good to go






so then replaced the timing cover and cam cover ….with a sneak peak at the theme i'm hoping to achieve









yeah ok …..for all you northern hemisphere types (who cant read upside down )   right side up, by photo manipulation



what do you think ...looking the goods ….yes ?

next the output shaft sump etc

I truly appreciate your efforts towards cleanliness being next to godliness, Chaz. I, on the other hand, leave perhaps too much of yesterday's devilish grease and oil while I impatiently see how it all fits together.

brought old Gerty to her new home today  by visiting brisvegas again

thanks to Matt , the old girl started straight up , after removing a battery tender attached by Matt

thanks heaps Mate !!!

Gertys new home ...plush to say the least …"oh the serenity "



also acquired some bolts for gearbox to bell housing (enough for 2x applications ) from my favorite bolt shop

I showed the attendant pics of their stock supplied by them and installed to the motor that I have been working on ,  and she instantly recognised the  k100 head , which she also has , installed to a mini project she is working on ...great affinity indeed .. she was impressed  to say the least .

also some new head - steering bearings arrived , ( jap brand at least ) so the project moves along

Charlie, out of curiosity, did you replace those awful Torx bolts with capheads when you bolted the bellhousing back on? What the hell were BMW thinking of when they did that?

hiya Dai .. yes cap head bolts into the bell housing will be allen heads




today spent a few hours  with smithy , repairing a frame bridge crack , now rewelded with some steel support



and replaced the steering head bearings , the lower yolk bearing being particularly hard to remove .


now with new jap bearings fitted , this bit ready to go




a bit of fiddling about repairing paint defects and injuries (from rough handling , bumps etc )  will happen this week , followed by a good layer or two clear coat , should have the frame ready for taking parts next week

will give me time to refinish the bell housing and fit it back up with a later version of the sprage clutch

Polishing eh?

I had a fat-tank 860 Ducati and made the fatal mistake (young and stupid) of poishing the cases so they just about glowed in the dark.

Boy, did I make a rod for my back!

I had to keep them polished as they just looked crappy otherwise!

Good luck with whatever you decide.

yeah your right guys

the sump oil pump etc is clear coated . likely the top of the motor also
side panels , cam cover, timing cover and crank cover will be Cornubia waxed as they are easy to get to  and suffer from exposure issues ,so easy to keep  wiping it over

effort this morning has the bell housing  taken from brush - scotch bright finish ,  to polished , not a great deal of appearance difference to the camera , but smooth as a babys bum

clear coat to go on later

thanks for the replys ….appreciate the opinion

It's amazing the different paths people take. I applaud your genuine effort as the real deal. This K11 I bought a coupla years, the basket case, well the bloke spray painted everything black. He musta used a spray gun coz it's a thick, durable layer. Trub is the wanker sprayed over the rubber boot on the Paralever, hose clamps, even wheel weights. 

Spray Job Special.

dang , I feel your pain


we do have a pretty good paint stripper out here , poly stripper , which is miles better than many other brands at removing tough paint

if using some other product be aware that if unsuccessful first application  there is no way back , it hardens the paint a great deal and nothing less than sanding etc will remove it , just a heads up

eager to see what becomes of the old basket case …  a great deal younger than my attempt

hmm , not hard to do chocolate

first off valves were removed to start with

ports were cleaned up with a Dremel tool  reshaping the short curve radius as to reduce any sharp corners with a sanding barrel type thing

valves were cleaned up on the face and rear using a wire brush on a drill

hemispheres of the combustion chamber were cleaned up with wet and dry paper , finished with the Dremel type tool and wire brush

head surface was refinished with a standard stone used for sharpening knives etc ….when brand new they are particularly flat and make for a good grinding stone , all by hand

careful not to make any big differences in the surface , uniformity is paramount

valves were them lapped to the seats with grinding paste ,  

it took quite a while to get it to look like that



hope that helps

Your description of the process gives the impression it's all in a relaxed Sunday arvo, when in fact it's a heap of time - and patience - required to achieve those results. Well done, Mr Semi-Retired. I'll wager the stack of tinnies in the corner can tell the tale.

Hi Charlie, if your rubbers are in good condition and supple. I have found that tie wraps will do the job, of course on a faired bike you will want to be extra careful checking for leaks before covering them up

5mm tiewraps... now that is a good idea if the rubber hasn't gone hard. If you can get them on from the inside that will definately improve the look of the bike in that area.

Colour can be changed with the aid of marker or paint pens. So pink is a distinct possibility if you want.
Regards Martin.

One of the problems with zip ties in stainless is the width of the tie. It's generally too wide for the ridge provided on the bushing and won't sit quite properly. The Suzuki band clamps are the correct diameter and width and fit much better. You'd have to check the ties you have available to you to see whether they fit.

Rob I haven't checked them out lately but I believe they can be had in a couple of widths. I was going to substitute the OEM ties for stainless. After a bit of cogitation I concluded that they would be a pain to remove on the side of the road if needed.
Regards Martin.
