ok so i have a 85 k100 that i got as a basket case and got it up and running and i just noticed right after i changed the oil that when i start it up the oil level in the sight glass doesn't drop at all for quite some time like 2 or 3 min. before there is any drop in the oil level at all
and im thinking maybe the oil pick up might be clogged or the oil pump might be bad i don't know what do you think ?

when i changed the oil i used Royal Purp. 20/50

Does the oil light work as it should, come on when the key is turned on and go out when running?
Is there oil in the top end under the cam cover?

If you wanted your oil to circulate and bring up the pressure quickly then you should have used 10/50 or 5/40. So much wear occurs on startup because the engine is running before the thick oil has time to get around.
I would never put 20/50 in any of my old or new bikes.

i used 20/50 because here in Phoenix Az , USA i have to deal with 120 degree F. temp in the summer & i have ran that same oil in all my bikes and none of them have ever had this problem on my BMW R1200C 2 seconds after startup you can see the oil level in the sight glass drop
as for the oil light , there isn't one anymore i did however take out the old pressure sensor and put a pressure gage on it and almost zero pressure for almost 2 min. then it slowly came up to 28psi
i pulled the bottom pan and the pump assembly everything look's as it should but im wondering if maybe the spring on the pressure relief valve might be bad or the O ring that seals the pick up tube

I would say the only option is to take the pickup and pump apart and investigate.

It is very hot here in the south of France too, many summer days can be 40c. I would never dream of using 40 year old oil technology in any bike or car. My diesel car uses the manufacturers recommended 5/30 oil.
Whatever the outside temperature it is the first number on the oil that determines how quickly it circulates, the lower the better. If the outside air temperature made that much difference then our house aircon would struggle in the summer.

Actually the Manufacturer's Recommended oil for a 1985 BMW K-100 Operating in 100 degree + Fahrenheit temp. is 20/50 maybe i should have been more clear as to the fact that the oil i'm using is not the problem it's mechanical i know this because this bike didn't have this problem 3 week's ago and none of the other 3 BMW's i have all running the same oil have this problem or have ever had this problem but i do thank you for your reply

It should not do that, its as if you're running it for 2 mins on residue oil somehow. must be a clogged pick up. That gauge for the oil pressure is that directly attached to the motor or via a oil tube line run up to the instruments cluster

I agree that the oil grade isn't the problem. The oil type is appropriate for that climate. The difficulty stems from the bike's being a basket-case and needing a greater degree of cleaning and inspection than just a well-used bike. As Rick G indicated, thoroughly inspecting the combination pump and components might be the appropriate course now.

pulled the pan & oil/coolant pump , everything look's good except the O ring that seals the pick up tube it looks dry and very brittle , so ordered all new O rings and went ahead and ordered a new spring for the pressure relief valve the one that i took out im sure it was the org. from 85
anyway parts should be here middle of the week so we will just have to see then
the oil presure gage i attached directly to the oil pump by removing the OEM pressure sensor

28psi is fat too low for a K100 it should be at least 45 and up to 60psi so maybe the pump has a lot of end float in the gears which would account for it not drawing up the oil as well.
One thing to be careful of is that there is one brand of filter (can't remember which now) that has a coating on it and it comes off when in contact with the oil and clogs the intake. This is not the case with yours but thought I would say it for the benefit of all.

RickG, I believe the filter of which you speak is the Fram which has that coating so you can unscrew it with oily hands without a wrench. Because it is such a crappy unit from the point of filtering efficiency and manufacturing quality it should be avoided in any event.

Speaking of filters, if I am not mistaken, the filter is downstream of the oil pump and as such, if it is not tight, it can leak oil back into the oil pan. Obviously this is not good for the engine. While in the engine, it might be a good idea to change the filter and make sure it is screwed in.

Hi Warhammer,
Have you checked the oil filter is on tight? There may be an old extra gasket on the filter mount preventing proper sealing.

I find it very strange that people want the latest radial tyres and the latest fuel etc for their bike then are happy to use 30 year oil oils with a viscosity chart that is also 30 years old. You are never going to see API SG 5/40 on that chart because the never made it back then.
Your bike use what you want, I cannot get 30 year old oil specs as they don't make API SB anymore, and it is not that good compared to a modern oil.

I will agree that modern oils are so much better than 30 years ago that is why I don't use 30 year old oil but buy modern mineral oil of the recommended viscosity.

Thanks guy's for all the Help even Bob T , that for some reason is stuck in lala land about oil maybe in France they just do things different and that's Cool maybe it's just a fetish i don't know or care !!! LoL !!!
But i do know this Royal Purple 20/50 is just about the most modern up to date advanced full synthetic Motor Oil that is out there on the market here in the USA today and that's what i Run.
I HAVE
1998 BMW R1200C , running Royal Purple 20/50 that has 48,460 miles on it (bought with 7,000 miles on it)
1999 BMW R1200c , running Royal Purple 20/50 that has 66,211 miles on it (bought with 11,000 miles on it)
1989 BMW K100 , running Royal Purple 20/50 it has over 100,000 miles on it (bought with 67,000 miles on it)
1985 BMW K100 , the bike in question running Royal Purple 20/50 with god knows how many miles on it.
i my self have put a lil over 3000 miles on it that's why i changed the oil (every 3000 miles) that started this hole thread because again here in Phoenix Arizona we have hot and i mean hot summers i have seen 120 fahrenheit that's like 47 or 48 Celsius to all the guy's across the big pond
So that's a lil over 130,000 miles total riding on Royal Purple 20/50 in some of the hottest temperatures there is to ride in so i know for a fact that the oil is not the cause of this and for where i live and ride it is for a fact the right oil i should be running i really hope this puts a end to the argument over oil

Basic 2 may have hit the nail on the head asI recently found that exact problem on bith my K's....and yes it reduces oil pressure and also flow...and simulates having a clapped out oil pump.

quick easy check too...and continue with the high quality modern 20W50 as it works just fine.

But Bob T has not spent his life in lala land he spent most of it in the UK and Germany working as an aircraft engineer.
They do things different in France for sure but they know about engineering, they managed to build that great symbol of Americanism, the statue of liberty, and look how long that has lasted.
Royal Purple oil is not available in Europe.

French humour? You mean me? English born and bred, but with a German mother.
I live in France because the weather is much hotter than Britain and gives a longer biking season. I also live here to provide a base for the Irish contingent when they visit. I live here because the food is better, the people are friendlier and the cost of living is much lower than Britain, and that last point allowed me to retire at 45 and enjoy life on the empty French roads.
England and France have a lot in common (apart from language) in that between them they invented or were the first: To fly an aircraft. Invented the Jet engine. Invented the railway train. Invented the hovercraft. Invented the steam catapult for aircraft carriers. Built the statue of liberty, discovered America and Australia and many more things.
This part of southern France was once part of England, not a colony, but England as a country, but then the French wanted it. England fought a 100 year war over it and lost.
I will never be French because it takes at least 80 years of living here to be be that lucky and I'll be dead by then.

"discovered America and Australia and many more things."
Christopher Columbus was Italian and working for Queen Isobella of Spain and I believe he is credited with the discovery of the Americas. Although I have a sneaking feeling the original inhabitants already knew about it. I also believe that America was known about as far back as 9th century CE but they managed to hush it up till Chris Columbus opened his big mouth.

The Dutch knew of the existence of the Australian continent in the 16th century but called it New Holland. Although the Australian aborigines knew of its existence at least 49,000 years prior to that.
Now lets hear what else the Poms and Frogs "discovered" Laughing

Amerigo Vespucci was an Italian explorer and cartographer who.....died in 1512......and whose Latin name was Americus and who had found the New World before Christopher Columbus and who was involved in organising some of Columbus' expeditions. 14th and 15th centuries were times of real exploration with what were really very primitive ships. Part of Irish history is that these ships required enormous amounts of timber and oak of a particular type and England as a seafaring nation was using all her timber to build ships, so she needed to look abroad for trees from Ireland then further afield from the Americas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amerigo_Vespucci

But we do most certainly know St Brendan went there......and the reason we do know is that he also got back to tell the tales!!

Now he has found the missing O ring it's now up on eBay. I bet we have all done something like that some time. I remember a friend rebuilding an engine and was all back in the bike ready to go and I picked up something off the floor and asked him what's that. He informed me it was a piston ring, which I already knew but the look on his face said it all........Funny how when you rebuild anything you end up with a load of left over bits.

It was a funny one but for me I was always curious as to how such a name could have come about considering names like Thruxton, Bonneville etc were more the norm.

Thanks Olaf, Wonder how Warhammer is getting on. Wonder if he spotted a spare seal stuck on the pickup yet

Im still out here , and still waiting on parts to come in from Germany it would appear that no one here in the states have the pressure relief valve spring did find a extra gasket on the damn oil filter and that was probably the problem but i decided to rebuild the oil pump and the water pump wile it's down im also making up new throttle and clutch cables

Well done Warhammer, the culprit identified. Yep if your down there, it's going to supply you with satisfaction to know it's all done.

Don't think there are many who haven't been caught by that one.

Although I have never managed to double up the oil filter seal.. yet..

I have to admit to spending a day looking for my filter removal socket.... only to find it still on the filter inside the cover .

Knew I had put it somewhere safe....


Glad you sorted it Warhammer.

Bob
