Reassuring that you've referred to the 'usual leaks' - I thought it was just me, all mine have leaked there too at some point.

bugga it , couldn't wait to see the difference it made to the rear end , as far as themed colour scheme , so fitted it up straight away

kinda fits in well I recon . rather than that black original shock

and yes the rear disk is not the finished item ....the matching to front floating disk for the rear has a warp in the hub - disk mount  so needs to be machined ....will go on at a later stage ....but I do have rear brakes  ...yipee   !!! likewise the rear wheel rim  , will be sorting an adaptor to straighten another rim ...pretty soon


edit , just noticed I got the top yolk 180 degrees out , cant access the damping adjustment , oh well , switch it round later today ,

hmm could that gun be  a replica of sorts ?


just a few things to sort properly  , like leaking brake master at the front , etc
the local restorers club , over at Inverell , do a "rego day" on the 30th of November ...more a get together and reregister  or newly register a complying vehicle .
but you need to have every thing in order to present to the officer for testing ,  Phil Kimber ( "rockman"  on here ) has been watching the progress I guess and is one of the registrars for the club , im hoping all goes well .
but I still need to get  rego papers from a previous owner to prove that at one time it was in fact registered and also to register the bike with the RMS  (roads authority  , formerly dmr  (as I knew it , some time ago ) for the historic plates , and a "pink slip " (safety certificate ) along with some other stuff  ?

ill have to send off to al pennykid ,who says he may still have some documents regarding the frame at least


seems like a big task , given that so many bits and pieces have come from all over and the frame has changed from an RT to an RS ...in our eyes no biggie  but hmmm  not sure about that  bit

perhaps things will fall into place  this month

You dont need a pink slip Charlie. The club inspector can do that for you. Nor do you ned the old rego papers. A receipt from the previous owner (of the frame) is sufficient. Alternatively you can do a stat dec at the RMS.

A great project and well done too.

On the rear shock I have one of those Konis on my K100LT and it was great for 2 up with camping gear on twisties. It is still good but needs a refurb and repaint the spring. Did you do any more to it??

Charlie, you're lucky those side covers conceal the black cable ties around the top rail of the frame otherwise you would have to source red ones - and how about getting some grey/silver cable ties for those lines running down to the rear master cylinder?

On the RT to RS question - I don't think it will bother NSW RMS too much. When I went to register my K75 which was imported and a factory naked bike designated just "K75" they told me that it was either a "K75S" or a "K75RT", which is it? so it's an RT. Apparently because the "K75" naked was not sold out here they don't recognise that model.

Cheers

It'll be as a K100RT, because that is what the frame and vin says. The different tupperware doesnt matter that much, except to some clubs for whom originality is paramount.

My experience with one motorcycle registration with RMS was similar to Rockman's. The description of the model recorded by the RMS official doing the registration data entry was different to the manufacturers model description - close but different. It appears that if the drop down menu does not have the correct descriptor, the common response of the person doing the registration data entry is to select something that approximates. There appears to be no capacity for the person doing data entry to do an on the spot modification to correctly describe the model.  Some insurance companies also have incomplete descriptors for models and select the closest model descriptor just to complete the transaction. They just don't have our passion!

Same in Queensland if the frame or VIN says it's an RS then it's an RS there is no way but to choose from a manufacturers list.

fitting up the lower fairings , well trial fittup ,
looks like ill have to undo a few things and relocate the fairing spider around just a smidgen , and the lower brackets are a little wide
, ill take an inch off them and see i guess ......

question can someone measure the airbox to outer lower fairing and tell me the measurement ...as i have not seen the brackets for this area before and i would like to get it close to original ....before i do any cutting

think I got it sorted , thanks to Aaron   who  took measurements , about 105mm to outer edge , should then let the knee pads fit neatly to the engine bits and I guess the tank interface - buffer

You don't really need those Charlie - I find they're more of a PITA than useful and a huge PITA to get them correctly orientated. If the exhausts are a reasonably tight fit in the silencer they soon seal up with carbon. BTDT; used to do it on my Guzzis too. Or not do it, depending on your POV.

finally fitted up the right hand "Side Pocket" mod

looks ok to me and a good firm fit
just a little finishing to the aluminium to complete and to find some really flexible silicon sheet to cover the hinges

[thread hijack]

Mind you, I blame Charlie for giving me the push to do this after I'd thought about it for so long. As we're a somewhat wetter clime than Charlie's bit of the bush, I had to make it water resistant (I'd love to say 'watertight' but Murphy and all that...). I made the box from 2mm aluminium but you're not seeing it because I made a complete bollox of the welds in places. It's lined with 3mm closed cell sticky-back neoprene - yeah, yeah, so I bolloxed it up in places too Laughing . No rattly tollbooth change in there. There's a divider bolted about about 2/3rds of the way down the box to prevent coins from disappearing out of sight. The lid is made from high-nickel content (i.e. slow rust) 1mm thick mild steel covered with satin-black sticky-back plastic. Contrary to what your eyes are telling you, the four stainless allen bolts holding the box on are countersunk flush into the rubber.

The lock is a 16mm camlock from a filing cabinet and the hinge is stainless steel. The neoprene on the bottom is punched out at the rear to provide a couple of drain holes and the box is drilled in the same place. I then punched the holes with a punch (!!) to turn them into shallow spouts. I added a second layer of neoprene to the lid so that it was well compressed when locked.

solved a number of issues in the last few days
front brake master leaking , and removing paint as it did so ...bugga !
rear disk rubbing badly on rotation
engine cam cover leaks
centre stand return springs wrong angle at one end ...(wtf )

a package arrived from blighty (motorworks in this case ) with resolution bits like, service kit (piston for master cylinder and seals )
new engine cover seals , and old second hand centre stand springs

whilst waiting for the stuff to arrive I made a rubber seal to mate to the piston pushrod and circumference of the master cylinder housing  which pushes home into the brake side perch with the aid of a couple of bolts

I figured that the piston seals would - could let some fluid pass as the bore and rubbers aged ... I got some hole punches and thumped out some rubber into the right size for the job , of course tested the theory on old Gerty first , (which does leak like a sieve , but not too bad ) and it worked ....well for now at least .
so applied the same to the recovered and reworked master cylinder which I had , replacing the old piston with the newly arrived replacement . bloomin brilliant ....

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 11 20191110

found another old rear disk (with cast iron brake disk (retired))  with what appeared to me to be a good carrier which ran as true as you could want , as the one from Floyd  was bent fairly badly , the floating steel disk just followed the bad carrier ... 
a Charlie ...quick strip clean up and repaint , had the carrier ready to mount the floating disk the next afternoon ,  upon mounting, it ran excellently as in neutral , engine running , the rear wheel rotated freely

the recovered engine case gaskets were leaking badly in all the usual places , like the low point of the cam cover especially .  measured the old and hardened rubber seal at about 2.38mm in thickness along the seal area .  the new seals arrived measuring about 3.00 mm and supple as you would want , fitted up yesterday and let cure as I had applied gasket sealant to the retaining grove around the cover .  so far with a bit of running happening  no leaks ...yippee !!!

and of course Charlie treatment to centre stand springs had them installed  also the next day ,, with definitely a good centre stand return action now

now to bed in the brakes over time  in preparation for club registration ....not too far off now ...at the end of this month

You will be tearing around legally very soon. It really gets to me that the tiny little things crop up when you think that all is going so well. I also had that spring problem on my basic. The spring looked ok and I didn't know that there was a right and wrong way of putting it on, after all the function is pretty simple.

oh ,I don't know what the spring came off stan but the hook part was 90 degrees different to the other end
being the right length and diameter , its a mystery to me

top one is the fake unit , bottom one is a s/h unit from motorworks , repainted etc

made a version 2 for the sidemarker lamps in the indicator pods

these  (top set) newer - different  cob lamps should have a wider view angle  as version 1 was quite too narrow for the diffraction of light in the lenses to be really effective

bit more work last couple of days

decided to hack the front master cylinder reservoir , its just so big and fuggly on the build, hitting the faring etc

to route in a lip around the top , now I know it clears the fairing at that height , find some screws etc

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 11 20191115


a bit of bling to the rear fender , to cover up the old registration labels etc,  which left impressions into the plastic fender

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 11 20191116

reworked the pretension tubes on the progressive springs in the front forks , took 40 mm out , leaving 40 mm ....ill have to add about 10mm extra  to raise the ride height , just a touch , and so the under fairing lamps clear the front fender when under full compression and turning tightly .
but the feel and ride is far better than before the cut in length ...was just too hard and bouncy at normal speeds  . also replaced fork oil for 5 weight .

Charlie - if you're in that situation you're just about to bid a high-speed fond farewell to the bike. As long as they clear the fender on full compression straight ahead, I think that would be enough.
