Someone got any experience with cutting out the dash?... I unhooked it from the tree, and it didn't run.. is there a simple solution? re-routing some wires or something like that?

You getting power to the starter button from the neutral light,
with dash removed you need to pull the clutch to start.

Excellent discussion chaps, I've often wondered what it would take to get my spare 86er running again (No dash and no rear brakes) but I'm thinking the Ecu and engine/gearbox would make it a candidate for fitting a tray to the back making a farm cart with style. If I can get it going.

Seems quite normal for an old good reliable K.

My oldest one have been standing untouched in 7 years 9 months.
Earlier this year I got the idea to check if it could be scared back to life.

Changed all fluids, filters, sparkplugs, battery and added some foggin oil to
the cylinders, ignition on...hittin` the button....it fired up before the crank did a complete rotation!!!!

I did expect a lot frozen parts and leaks everywhere....but just minor.
Rear master did need a little bit extra push, but no leak.
Front master very minor leak (just sweating), but gaskets never been changed.
Thats all!!!

All that have been done beside normal service parts during the years is:
At 155K km new gaskets and fluid container on rear master.
At 190K km new cam chain and rails, front rotors and starter brushes.
A whole lot of rear brake light switches (have to blame the salted roads for that).

A quite amazing 25 year old bike which have passed 200K km.

Scheffers,

No offence mate but Styling is important and you should follow the line of artistry.

Having been in the car industry and part of it in styling I recommend you follow this picture line.

Good luck Ajays.

First of all, thanks for the input!! No offence taken, I always love discussing my designs…

As a designer you should then know that form doensn’t always meet functionality…


The frame of the k100 is already quite high, and wide!.. (specially for me… 1.70m)…


If you want to place the seat the way you photoshopped.. no-one will properly touch the ground with his feet…

I agree that your line is the line to go! But it’s simply not do-able with the standard frame (something I want to keep in this project)…


I want to keep it low.. and a diving line… I’m going to edit the lower front of the tank and lower front of the seat to match forms.. that
way I get a bit of uniformity, a diving line and a drivable line… designing is all about making consessions….

Hey mate, very cool ideas. Just a thought, if you modify the seat piece to wrap around the frame, it may end up quite wide and make getting your feet on the ground a little awkward.

Just a bit of food for thought, good luck.

Hey Scheff,

How many hours do you figure you've got into fabrication for the exhaust and what did you end up using?

Approximately 25/30-hours, that includes finding the "silencer"

I used +/- 2 metres of 35x2 stainless, 1 metre of 45x2 stainless, and some pieces 65x2 stainless.. the silencer is a Termignoni, very light stainless!

I just have to say how much I love this concept, although I wonder how this bike would look without the front fairing...

It's almost finished, need to cut some foam for the seat, and fully
align the fairings to make it a super-straight line from front to
back... I am a really happy man at the moment!!

Looking good scheffers, have you had it running yet?
Would be intersted to know how it goes with your modified air box intake etc.

Good transformation though, is there no end of possibilties with these bikes. Smile
