Front brake anti-chatter springs

Does anyone know why the front end of the front brake anti-chatter springs are shaped as they are? The fancy ‘oval with cutouts’ shape seems to have no purpose as it doesn’t fit into anything or even touch the pads - unless I am missing something.

Re: Drum skimming

I have a drum-brake hub which I bought as being in good condition from Motorworks. I bought it to have it spoked into a 16” rim for a 78 R80 sidecar outfit but never used it. It had been bead-blasted by Motorworks and the splines look to be excellent. If you decide not to go the skimming route, pm m...

Re: Worn sprocket by hook or by crook

Looking at the wear, it appears to me that the original tooth profile is on the ‘anti-clockwise’ side of the tooth and the worn profile is on the ‘clockwise’ side ( the rh side of the uppermost tooth.) This would seem to be consistent with that side transmitting the power. Initially, the roller fits...

Re: Jump start

A great idea but I would slip a piece of plastic tube over the connector with the end sealed with tape to prevent accidental shorts

Useful websites

While looking for information about fitting hazard lights to a R100 RS for a friend, I came across what I think are a couple of useful resources: 1) https://www.euromotoelectrics.com/category-s/2539.htm They list all sorts of stuff for BMs, including a ‘no longer available from BMW’ sub harness to f...

Re: 98 R1100RT side stand extension

While the bike is on the main stand lower the prop stand and see if you can waggle it up and down. This will show up any wear in the prop stand bush and/or pivot pin

Re: Mend your own Airhead?

But this was a custom bike he was building for a paying customer. He modified the tank and had it painted very nicely in black with white pinstripes and it was a super job which must have cost quite a bit. The old ha’peth of tar comes to mind.

I watched another of his videos where he removed the subframe and welded on another to suit the single seat he fabricated. Great fabrication skills but he then just rubbed down the area he had worked on, covered the engine and rest of the bike and only sprayed the bit he had worked on. After putting...

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

No problem! I’ve had a look at my K75 and there is indeed a central idle adjustment screw on that motor. Your method is fine, Jaythro, if you ignore the reference to the ‘test idle screw’. As I now know that the idle is controlled by the ecu, it would have been better if I had checked/set the TPS vo...

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

I think it was Jaythro’s original reply that confused me when he referred to raising the idle speed using a screw, I presume that applies only for the 2 valve motors. I’ll take the throttle cover off my recently acquired K75 and have a look.

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

Thanks for checking that Mike, that’s exactly the same as my bike, the screw just limits the ultimate travel of the fast idle mechanism. As you say, it wouldn’t seem to justify an adjustable stop as it only comes into play when the fast idle lever is moved past its second detent to the point where i...

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

PS With regard to the ‘screw number 2’, this doesn’t seem to do anything! With the fast idle lever off ie parallel to the handlebar, there is about 10 or 12 mm between the bottom of the screw and the little extension on the end of the quadrant operating arm where the cable nipple is. (Part number 1 ...

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

It seems to be sorted! The TPS was showing around 0.5 volts! It’s now at 0.367 and the idle speed has dropped to 1000 rpm. Just a final round of the big brass screws and all should be well.
Thanks for everyone’s assistance - what a great forum this is!

Thanks for finding that Rob. I hadn’t posted yet but my own searches had drawn me to the same conclusion but I had to go round the houses to get there.

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

Yes, I’ve got a set of Davida vacuum gauges. I had a go at your method, Jaythro, but couldn’t find the ‘eejit’ screw. There are the three screws between the four throttle bodies, ‘they that must not be touched’ and a screw at the rear which seems to limit the travel of the fst idle (choke) mechanism...

K1100RS Idle Speed

Can anyone confirm how to adjust the idle speed on my 1993 K1100RS? The idle speed is around 1400rpm, it should be around 950. A Google search throws up some suggestions : One mentions using the big brass screws and another mentions a throttle stop screw and yet another says use the TPS. Does anyone...

K1100RS Heat Screening

On my 1993 K1100RS, there is a foam rubber heat screen inside the left-hand fairing which stops hot air from the radiator blowing onto my left leg as it forces the hot air to vent through the slats in the side of the fairing. The realOEM fiche shows a similar one inside the right-hand side but the i...

After a bit of investigation I have found that the grips on each side are not fully on the bars by about 30mm each side so I’m going to take about 20mm off each end of the bars and seat the grips fully home. That should then give the ‘standard’ riding position for a K75C and see how that goes. I’ve ...
