Hi from a newbie I have been given a 1986 K100RS Which was left outdoors for a few years, It has 40K KMS and engine sounds sweet.I want to strip and have frame powder coated. What is the best way to go about stripping I have been told to Drop out the engine then remove loom I am promised a Haynes Manual but want to go ahead with strip. I have removed all the plastics and am looking at the vast wiring any suggestions appreciated. I have done this on a Honda CB750 DOHC. but this looks more complex.Embarassed

Take lots of photos...and then take a few more just in case!

Stick labels on everything.

I'll have to get out more. All these people getting bikes given to them and others finding them in barns/sheds. Crying or Very sad

Welcome Patlac.

I do agree with Blakey and Oldgoat.
When I stripped my K100, I took only few pictures to create a simple web page about the renovation. I got so many comments and questions that I had to start this forum. Look at the result... A world wide community of K100 enthusiast people!
Patlac, contact me by PM and I will give you a link to the Clymer and Haynes manual.

Thanks Guys I have camera ready to start shooting, What I need to know is should I remove wiring harness first or drop engine. The engine is very dirthy and needs a good cleaning to remove corrosion on Casings any way of doing this without expense of getting it blasted.Glad I found this site you guys are very helpful.Any more suggestions welcome.

I did a complete teardown as well, and followed Crazy Frog's restoration page. The simple answer to your question is take out the engine before the wiring loom.

Hi from another newbie I now have a 1991 former Police K100LT with high mileage, it will require a lot of TLC to return it to its former glory. so I was delighted to find this Form which I think will help me to get it back on the road. I have been reading through the form and the amount of expert friendly advice is obvious. when i get organized and learn how to post pictures i will do so, with your help looking forward to my new project

Pat
