I have a 1985 k100 LT.  I've completely disassembly bike for "i don't know what" a few years ago and now Im putting back together. Electrical is definitely beyond me... could anyone give me a hint where and how should I connect this 3 connectors from my fuse box? I couldn't find anything to connect them... (No worries, I will have more dumb questions soon!)

Don't let it get too far beyond you. The engine is managed by electricity.  Laughing  Anyway, the white plug would connect up an anti-theft alarm if you had one. The black plug could connect up a siren, emergency lights, driving lights, and other electrical accessories if you wanted them. The rectangular plug might be for enabling four-way flashing from turn indicators.

Before assembly, verify electrical plugs aren't corroded then spray them with DeoxIT D5—a high-quality electric contact cleaner. It can sometimes be found where electronic musical instrument sales are a specialty, at some automotive parts dealers, or online.

Not everything that you were taught at school is true; things like 'this subject isn't for the likes of you'.

Anybody who can connect a hosepipe up and turn on a tap is capable of beginning to understand electricity. Just stay away from the mains for the time being  Smile.

What Laitch says. The single connector with a brown wire is an earth for the black accessories plug. TL:DR - you don't need any of them.
