$100 1000cc BMW K100, Will it Run?

10 ամիս առաջ

Ike bought three old motorcycles from a friend for $300 total. None of them have titles, which means they're perfect candidates for engine donors for future builds! Today we try to get a 1985 BMW K100 running for the first time in seven years. These 1L motorcycles are known as the "flying brick" because of the engine architecture and placement- it's an inline-four cylinder laid down. Fuel injected, shaft drive, 90 horsepower, 1000cc, and 8,500 RPM redline means that this engine is going to be the perfect candidate for our next big project.
Thanks for Watching!

I would have totally restored that 85 BMW K100 bike and modified it to my liking, because with those license plates and with the previous registration it would not be hard to get a replacement title for that bike you guys, I would have kept it on the road, I will own a BMW K100 someday, oh my bad you guys I'm watching more of your video and I see that you guys didn't use that bike so what happened to it???? More videos of it brother please!!!

If a machine has been sitting for a long time, spray WD-40 down the spark plug holes the day before trying to start it in order to un-stick the piston rings.

Sometimes people think the clutch is frozen but you can't pull the clutch while the bike is on the side stand as they are connected with a cable...safety measure so you dont dride away with the sidestand down

$100, Nice, Maybe you guys should just clean it up, use it and sell it after you have some fun. Sounds like that what your going to do after I watched the rest of the vid.. I use to ride motorcycles w a group of guys and 1 of them rode a BMW.... He was a cool, and very preppy dude...

Long time fan of your channel. Today I'm shocked to see your findings. My 1985 K100 has over 225,000 miles. I just got back from this years first ride tonight. Make sure you check the oil in the 'window' on the right side of the engine. Keep it at least at 'the dot' (half circle of oil) in the window (viewed with bike on the center stand / kick down with foot and use chassis lever to elevate) - not the angled stand. I've learned tons of details regarding the K100 from BMW motorcycle service person Chris R. Harris of Team Monkey Productions. Definitely check this out to ensure the engines best performance and health. Oddly enough, this engine is actually used in a couple European cars! I'm sure it could be used in many applications and look forward to seeing your projects! Congrats!! Stay healthy Guys!

The side stand on these bikes is interconnected to the clutch cable. Pulling in the clutch requires you to take the bike off the side stand and the stand then is automatically retracted by the clutch cable. That may be why you believe the clutch was frozen initially. Likely you disconnected the cable connection to the side stand and the clutch then worked. These side stands were notorious for the bike falling over and it was considered a no-no to leave one of these run when on the side stand.

Good choice as a car power plant as this engine is build like for a car. Dry 180 mm clutch. The problem might be the placement of the starter and the alternator as it might collide withe engine bay wall. There is a guy in UK who build Hillman Imp with the 1.2 version of this engine. Revs to 9000.

I think they call it the smoking brick because the oil would slightly leak around the piston rings when parked on its kickstand. When they start back up they smoke for a bit while it burns off the oil.

I've brought one of these back from the dead before. One thing to remember is that when you unhook the battery and disconnect the CPU everything goes to zero. When you reconnect and start up, it takes a while for all of the sensors to negotiate best engine performance. Also, sometimes if they do not crank, put in gear and "bump" the transmission. Seals/gaskets on both sides of engine need to be sealed, as any loss of oil pressure will cause it to run bad. Pull the fuel filter from tank and check, replace if needed (any metallic fuel filter can work if it fits, no need for OEM part). The bikes need to be run every month or so. In the 1985 engine, there is a part in the drive train that can have loose rivets (I forget which part) which will rattle at certain RPMs. There was a replacement as it was a recall. Some guys just pulled the part and peened the rivets tight and put back in. Another recall/replacement was some sort of gortex/teflon breather in the instrument cluster. Once I had the thing back together it ran like a scalded ape. BUT, it was an RS, not an RT, so the riding position was very uncomfortable for long rides for an old guy. I had always worked on BMW airheads, so this electrical monstrosity was a new one for me.

My second K75 is currently completely disassembled and will be restored down to the last bolt and nut by me. You still owe me a link to the "stock BMW carbs" for K bikes. Telling others "You don't know anything about it." but throwing around fantasy facts...not with me, bro.

Btw guys I dont think the clutch is frozen, it is connected to the side stand and if the bikes leaning on it, it wont move and the clutch will seem locked, just pick the bike up off the sidestand and it ought to move and retract the sidestand.

Just stumbled on this video... It brought back huge memories!! I used to dispatch a K100rt round London many many years ago.. It was an ex police K 100 I loved it.. I loved how big it was, how stable it was, how it used to worried cars and taxis when i followed them. Until i was side swiped by a taxi that pulled out on me.. a Huge hole in t he sump and a puddle of oil. These engine go on for 100's of thousands of miles. I replaced BMW's chocolate output shaft in a shed, so well made.. I got another and recently sold it.. BTW the stripped out K looks like a unfaired version... you may want to sell the radiator shroud, they are like rocking horse poo, you will get your money back on that item alone. Most fully faired K100Rt and LT's get stripped back to the unfaired version as the fairing is expensive to replace. no one has the radiator shroud. Secondly if you are going to desecrate the engine and put it in a four wheeled vehicle (may god have mercy on your soul) Motorworks have a kit to convert it. It quite a popular engine to put into older Mini's www.motorworks.co.uk/vlive/Shop/Parts.php?T=5&NU=10&M=40&Ct=CA&SbCt=BA_10_40_CA_70
