Hi All,
I am just working on my second K100, a 1990 model, I have been riding a 1988 model with 197,000 on the clock.
Having ridden British bikes for all my life, it appears to me that the Germans have put the gearbox in upside down and back to front! :-) (work it out)

With old bikes, seized fixings and dodgy wiring is my battle at the moment. 

My current problem on the 1990 is it blew fuse 1 yesterday as I went to start it, I seem to have isolated it to either a fault in the "clocks" or damaged wiring around the headstock (the seized fixings are slowing down the investigations) all other components on that circuit have been disconected and still shown a short to earth. Unless anyone else knows different?

Greetings from Norfolk UK 177912. My guess is the wiring around the headstock. It's subject to quite a bit of stress there; on the faired models the fairing mounts can cut into the loom if it's not routed correctly.

What Dai said and to add if the bike has heated grips a melted resistance wire (for Low heat/ high heat) in that area can cause havoc at the least.

There are no heated grips on this bike, so no problem there. If I can free the screws to remove the screen so I can get at the back of the "clocks" to disconnect I mighht gert a result tomorrow!

Can you pop up the model K and maybe add the VIN?

For 1990 a K with a screen was an RS or LT as far as I know. If an LT it most likely had heated grips at one time that don't work but may still be live.

Now if you get it sorted will you come to K Fest at Donington Park 12/13 May? Quite a few of us going up there....camping for weekend is included in the weekend ticket!

No rain forecast for Saturday and my son has amazingly expressed an interest in coming along. Hook Head is one of his favourite rides. Keeping fingers crossed on that one. At least Tom O'Leary might have another Honda to keep him company.
