I usually have a bike stashed on the other side of Bass Strait, as the ferry sh1ts me to tears, but I let the rego laps a year ago, and so needed to bring it home to get it re-registered again. Tasmania doesn't have annual inspections, unlike most of the mainland states, so I can keep it registered by just paying, On time that is I had bought a '93 R100LT that had been front ended, and grabbed the motor, (small valve, 32mm carby, 8.5 compression, unleaded) which should be a nice flexible all rounder. The old motor was an '84 RS high comp leaded motor, wasted on this bike, gone are the days taking full advantage of the 51 Kw. The main object of the exersize is to make a bike that will require oil changes and tires only. Off with the standard bosch alternator, I have killed too many rotors over the years to trust them very far, on with en Endurolast kit, but wired up my way. One place I differed from the instructions is where to place the recterfier/regulator, I am of the strong opinion that they need to be out in the air stream, if they run hot, they fail, and the whole exersize with this bike is reliability. To my eye, form follows function, as you may have noticed If something works well, then it looks good to me, sort of the reverse of HD's So out in the airstream the recterfier/regulator is. New Hepco and Becker "classic" panniers to replace the boxes I was running, from my '76 R90S. This required a new "behind the numberplate" brace. I had a set of Hella HID driving lights hanging around the garage, so on with them, with the hardest job being mounting the ballasts. Notice the LED indicator lights velcroed to the instruments, this is because of a problem I encountered when fitting LED blinker bulbs, BMW's single blinker light in the instruments was causing all the blinkers to blink together through feedback through the instrument bulb. The simplest fix is to remove the bulb in the instruments, and fit external lights, a simple jub as the wiring loom is an RS one, and so has the fairing electrical plug unused, which includes blinkers. I added some extra power plugs and switches, from left to right, heated hand grip, unused, HID driving lights, Power plugs are, on always, on with ignition, on always. I can't take it for a test ride yet, as I am off back to sea in a weeks time, and so will register it when I return, I have too many fully registered vehicles as it is, so it can wait.
