SO.......i finally had to buy ....those three to hope and build me one!!!
i rode the 84RT for 500Km back home:
she drank more than 9 liters for each hundred km (instead of 5-6l\100KM) and made a kind of distribution noise between 2500and 3500revs(chain rattling on the cover?)
i brought the 87rs on a trailor as she was crashed but engine started ok and ran smooth except under 1200revs a nasty 'clang clang'(intermediate shaft rivets ?)
to day i go to get the 90lt (theft damaged only saddle and counter missing)with the trailor !
i spent only 1800euros for the lot !
the 84rt is apart(engine,gearbox,transmission)and will be used as donor or trial (i mean to try and take it all apart) bike and i m ready to spend some hours building one to put back on the road!!
meanwhile i learn theoreticcally from this forum
thanks

Sounds like good value. What form will the finished project have? RS or RT/LT? We look forward to seeing your project!

Good on you ASTF11
that sounds like a great idea. Get yourself an English book of swear words, it seems to help.
Cheers RT

No but you will need to pull the clutch in to give power to the starter relay.

yes crazyfrog i love it
while fiddling aroundon my k i met a funny devive at the central stand(kind of lever related to the side stand also?)didnt take enough time to discover the whole thing but may this interfere with ability to start the engine?(kind of safety device for not being able to start the engine while on side stand?)

I`ll guess this switch is wired the in same manner as the early K11`s, and then cutting the positive signal
to the fuel pump relay.

After some history with fried wires, this was later changed cut the negative signal to the starter
and Motronic relay.
