Xmas has arrived.


Having trouble with the brake lines though. I might need get one made up. The line goes into the caliper directly but I need a stock banjo head at the other end to take a rear switch.

Have the bike together and running.
Powder coated rims Gloss Black came up very well.
New BT45 tyres 100/90/18 and 140/80/17 fit on the rims well.
Need to remove bake brake caliper and muffler to install GRR.


Master cylinder may need a Total refurbishment.
Work well but when you let them off they go to zero pressure until pumped up.
Any ideas guys??


To do list is.
# Back brake pressure switch.
# Paint job.
# Install BMW emblems on tank.
# Seat pad.
# Front brakes to sort.
Then its new plate and WOF and rego.

remove muffler to fit it in ????

hmmm ...that's kinda interesting ...have no issue fitting 160 wide rear on gerty ...(except remove the caliper )

I guess the collector angle brings it in closer ?

looks mean indeed
cheers

I slacked off all the headers and moved the angles until I got a 20mm gap between the tire and muffler.
I can move it all away but would need remove the hanger and shape it to get a bigger gap again.
I figure since its a secondary bike for shorter rides the new tires will age faster than wear out.

Seems ok but I didn't ride far due to lack of brakes.
The powdercoaters have got coverage where they shouldn't have and its spreading the pads giving the master no pressure.
Also its got 4 pot calipers and only a 13mm master so that wont help a lot either.

Got the brakes working and discs lined up but the master(13mm) is to small to run the 4 pot brembos with good bite.
The alternatives are a r100r 15mm unit that involve a straight swap or change to a 20mm k1100 unit which involves new throttle grip and modifying a k1100 throttle cable at the injector end and also the bracket at that end.
Might be going the new r100r way.

Whoops.

Ordered 2 brake switch banjos and put the part number in wrong.
Two arrive but are 10mm with pitch 1 not 1.25

Reorder. Nothing for it but to have some beers as a punishment for my stupidity.

Still trying work out if I want 15mm r100r brake master or k1100 conversion plus how to fund it without wifey finding out before xmas.
She has put bells on my wallet and holds the cards day and night. Sad

After ordering the wrong banjo brake switch thread type for the rear brakes this was the sum total of my weekend.

Trim the rear off 2 bmw car wheel caps for the tank emblems.

Wasn't to keen on the blue ones.
Cost $14 nzd for the pair.

I thought to myself why pay for seat to get made.
So being me I bought a cheap trade me cbx seat with new cover for under 30 and cut it up.
Drying in progress. Alpha Grip foaming adhesive used. Messy stuff.
Blocks underneath while glue drying hence strap over the top until tomorrow.

New seat is down and fitted.

Happy with the finish.

Paint job and fit new master cylinder when it arrives and its finished.

Going to be a while though getting it painted and then certified is going to be expensive.

PSIII blew up on xmas day. Not tragic but it was my dvd and blue-ray player so needs replaced.
Trying to decide if I should get a dvd player and not bother with console. Im a seldom game player.
I wouldn't buy another playstation. Its the 3rd one died after not a lot of use for me.
ZX14r failed WOF so needs new rear tyre again. Only get 2000km per set.

Then back to saving for project again.

Two questions for you, now that I'm back working on my bike, how did you get the ignition to seat in the top triple? Also how much did you sink the forks (think measurement between the top of the fork and the top triple)?

I filed my ignition unit by hand until it was a loose fit in the whole then wrapped a layer of self amalgamated tape around ignition before sitting in hole and doing up clamp on fork leg. I wouldn't file any triple clamp ally to do it.

My fork legs will be about 25mm above the triple clamp.

New Master cylinder arrived.
Can confirm mystic 15mm works very well with my brake set up.
Disclaimer :  I have full braided lines so might not be as good on stock lines.
Installed and its now 2 finger braking.
Max pull on lever was almost full travel and is now about 1/4 pull.
Powerful enough to lift the rear wheel off the ground without to much effort and great feel.
First gear is very low and not having a slipper clutch its easy to get it locking up downshifting. Need get used to that.

Im tempted to go get it certified just so I can ride it and do the paint job next year now.
Shame the zx14r needs tyres GRRR. That's enough cash to certify k100.

Im not even sure. I would estimate I pulled about 70 off the bike in total.

I should have weighed the bike with a scale under each wheel one at a time but im not sure my wife would let me have her scales for that mission.

Hello

Very nice build you got there. I'm working on something similar and was wondering how you sanded the tank (I'm looking for a raw maybe brushed finish).

I've heard that its easy to overheat the aluminum and ruin the tank.

Regards
Tom

Having problems with speedo.
The K100 disc bolts go all the way through from one side to the other.
Normally bolt goes into non magnet ally.
Whats happening is magnet is trying to magnetise the whole bolt making to weak to read for the sensor.
Two magnets with 3 layers of shrink sleave around them work but only just.
I think ill need get a small super magnet or a non magnetic disc bolt.

Have not been in yet but understanding is if its beyond shock mount is ok. The hoop has been shortened and re welded facing upwards instead so its still there. Also I have an additional cross member further up.

Yes. I replaced my zx14r with a new Mv Agusta F4 and now I have 2 single seat bikes. Wifes wanting something with a usable double seat at some stage. If I find enough money before it sells ill keep it and get a 3rd bike. Its likely not to sell until I get a new plate and wof in the middle of winter. Theres a cheap k100rs on trademe that I might buy if the price stays low to solve the 2 up situation.

Its sold now and I am K less.
I bought a Bandit for taking the wife out due to the Agusta back seat not being suitable.

Saying that. I might build up another K or R soon.
Most likely a K as R models are huge prices here now while old K seem cheep.

If you notice a next to nothing priced K in NZ let me know. This thread is being watched.
