Early models did have a vacum switch connected to TB #1, I think the switch was removed 04/85.

From what i have read on different forums, it can be disconnected w/o any problems.

If by "No 1" TB you mean the TB closest to the front of the motor then see Inge's eggsellent 'splanation...but if you mean the back most TB then the vacuum hose goes to the fuel pressure regulator right behind the TB set. Plug off the other three TB vacuum stubs with rubber caps available at any auto parts shop.

Thanks Inge I had seen this diagramme in Clymers manual I think but it is not very clear as the hose comes of a tapping beside the closed off vacumn Guage (used for synchronising) and bends to the front and disappears behind the air box.
I have read Bertrand Vogels (Crazy Frog) excellent write up on the EFI and I see that the vacumn switch is normally open and when closed by the Vacumn it earths pin 15 of the Electronic ignition module but what for I can see no explanation as to what this does.
My recently aquired K100 had a few problems which I have irones out but on starting it miss fires (not badly) unless I keep the revs up until it warms up. Once warm it ticks over Ok (950 rpm) with an occaisional miss, It goes well and is giving 45 MPG when pushed hard 30 miles of 70 Mph + so there not a lot wrong but this small hose looks a bit grotty and suspect. So do I pull it off and plug it or replace the bit I can see (it is only against the TB that is a bit suspect) and cut it short and put a new piece in with a paralell conector.
Any advise welcome thanks

Oh I forgot to say that the bike will pick up in any gear from 1500 RPM.
Thanks

I should have said that the bike picks up smoothly from 1500 Rpm in any gear,

Have no experience with this vacum switch myself, but from what I have read on other forums...owners have disconnected the hose and not noticed any difference.

I suggest you do the same, and put a rubber cap at the stub....and it could be that it improves the engine cold running,,,if the tatty hose have a small leak.
But this could be tried first, and then we take it from there....

If I remember correctly the switch would advance the timing a few degrees to improve fuel economy, but it probably did close to nothing....since it was discarded after a short time.

Here is a picture of the switch (so you see where the hose ends):

I had a bit of a rake-round on the net and as nearly as I can see that switch provides a bit more timing advance on a trailing throttle. Stops the exhaust banging and popping maybe?

On overrun the fuel is shut off anyway.

Small zip-tie on loose hose connections might help.

Best of luck Very Happy

The switch in question activated a different advance curve for part throttle. It was effectly useless and discontinued. BMW runs surprisingly aggressive timing on their bikes. It is an area to which they devote more attention than is typical of motorcycle manufacturers.

You can put a TB plug over the spigot, remove the switch from the back of the TB rack, tape over the ends of the wires and secure them somewhere out of the way.
