1996 K1100RS Pox 20190410
I picked up this '96 K1100RS today. It's got 120/30/50/90 compression (overheated but he kept going) but the ABS functions, the battery is good, the fuel isn't stale, the fan functions, and all the bits you can't see in this picture are there. The previous owner fitted LT 'bars, Dash pad and cables. I'll put on stock RS 'bars or those K1 'bars I have sitting around. It's got about 59K miles/95K kilometres on the odo. I didn't need another project having just moved, but now I've got a two car garage again I've gotta keep it full. It's gunna require a bit of elbow to make it right...

I've got a spare K1100RS engine, complete, if needed, and I didn't pay much for this'n.

You expect it has toasted valves? You say the fan works, but it overheated nonetheless? Hummm. Empty radiator?
With that seat, I hope you have very short legs!
All in all, it looks to be a good project. Put her back on the road where she belongs!

When cranking the engine to determine compression it loped, and I could hear pressure escaping from one cylinder to another, suggesting a bad head gasket. Also, all valve clearances were below minimum spec. I have not determined yet what caused it to cook, but cook it did. I have spares of everything. It will ride again!
I can sit comfortably on any height BMW seat, and have three post-'86 seats available.
It's actually pretty clean, just needs - to go down the road after an engine swap- a front tyre, fork seals, and a thorough scrubbing.

With that compression they should've paid you to haul it away! Twisted Evil

Have a word with 88 [Will Crean] His K1100RS did things but he also found no 1 big end was toast. Might want to check the shells while you are in there. Not cheap to do as they are single use bolts.

It's got those sexy 96 SE silver forks. cheers

They don't fade or get paint nicks like the black ones do.

I have a spare, known good 59K engine. The original engine will get dropped and looked at later on.

Yes, dead sexy silver forks, made partially black by chronically leaking seals. The tubes felt smooth when I stroked them. Def gunna havta burn some sage over this one. It was a Puget Sound ferry commuter and saw more water time than tarmac, get the demons out.
