Hi Everyone. Nice to be here. Just bought a 1987 K100RT here on Maui. In the process of "rebuilding" as corrosion is such an issue. Gas tank leaks. Fuel pump wires have been connected the wrong way, so even though there's continuity through the assembly power is not actually going to the fuel pump. Or might have to check the ICM. Or FCM. Fuel injection rail has come out and is about to be ultrasonic cleaned along with the injectors. Otherwise a thorough power wash and double checking of everything before putting alternative headlight, tail light, turn signals, and a single seat on the frame to get to a sort of grunge-cafe-racer style bike.

Can't wait to ride...
Aloha,
Jonas

Hi Jonas
welcome from an envious Aussie.
Power washing has proven to be a bit disastrous in the past for electrics especially. Be a bit careful where you aim.
Good luck with everything.

Rather than mess up the critical stuff with a power washer, get some S100 Cycle Cleaner(the Hardley Dangerous dealers sell it) and use that with a gentle rinse.  Best cleaner I have found for getting oil and road dirt off my bikes.

Roger that. Thanks for the tip!! I just power washed underneath, the rest is aviation style with a nylon brush, rags, and simple green variants. Will check out that cleaner though for sure.

just stumbled on this gold mine. even though I've downloaded and printed both the shop manual and the wiring diagram, this is a pretty amazing resource.

S100 is amazing stuff, just ordered it. Thanks again @Point-Seven-five!!
