K100 RT ressurection
Well, it is up and road worthy now, the basket case RT I was fixing for a co worker.
To sum up, it was not running, the injectors were frozen, the pump was too. The rubber in the tank was a mass of goo, the front master cylinder was compressed and corroded in place, the clutch was stuck, the brake lines were shot (couldn't get fluid through them) the RH lower fairing was pretty broken up and to top it off it was a filthy mess.
I was able to clean out the injectors and pump and get them running again. A new (used) master cylinder and new lines from Speigler (can't say enough good things about that company), now the breaks work. Got a battery for it and new fuel hoses and filter...did a 24k mile service (all fluids, etc) Did some glass work on the fairing (good as new) and painting. Sand blasted the heat shield and painted it. Did a through clean up on the bike and it looks 1000% better. I'm really liking the look and feel of it. One thing I did find out...This bike HATES regular gas, premium only. Just need to change the tires and we're on the way!
