Re: 1991 R80RT Project

If you have the grey crack-o-matic coil then first things first...change it out as you might be wasting your time doing other stuff. It sure sounds more carb/fuel. Reading again, I was thinking float height, junk in the main jet and cables held up just a tad (high rpm). I'd also look at these ...pa...

Re: Motorcycle Dolly

I've had one of those for a few years now. I use it on a K1200r where the front wheel stays on the ground. The R100RS I parked on a turntable but that eventually fell apart. Now I park it on two pieces of carpet and do a 180degree turn using the left centre leg to pivot on. Ride into the shed, turn...

Re: 1991 R80RT Project

If you're right you'll know once you remove the EI at the front and squirt the insides with some cleaner, maybe add a little judicious lube. Mark it's position and replace in the same spot. Reinstall and test and you might get lucky? I wouldn't do it on the bike because you can't drain any excess f...

Re: Vacuum take off screws.

Those little screws can feel well stuck then crack open suddenly. A light tap via the screwdriver might help?

I've been using the flexible caps of the flu vax syringes from a few years back. Saves the screw getting stuck.

Hi do you declare the 45 days each in advance, or declare them as you go out or is it 45 days from a start date? George As part of the system they supply a small book. We must carry a book.

Re: Hot brake disc

Make sure the bores in the caliper are as clean as possible and linish the pistons if they have marks on them. Ditch 'em if scored though. The square section o-rings in the bore are worth replacing too. They have some function in encouraging the piston to return, it won't be much, just enough, so t...

Re: 1150 gs tank on a 1100gs

Thanks Jay. I am one who thinks keep the filter in the tank where it was designed to be. In two minds. Easy to change the sucker if it's external. Then again, what's the change interval? No abs lump so a good safe place to put it. Space galore in there. :smile: BUT!!! Give the Studs/nuts around the...

Re: R90/6 oil pump housing

This one? Just after 9 o'clock?

Normal...some oil gets thru to near the rear of the camshaft I think ??? via that. Should ensure it's clear if you're ever in there.

1150 gs tank on a 1100gs

That's what I'm doing. Are there any traps to be aware of? The 1100 tank is plastic and the paint has severe bubbling. I've sourced a very good Mandarin yellow small, non adv tank from an 1150. https://photos.smugmug.com/R1100GS/i-rPHkZ4d/0/5dbdd0d9/S/2021082922393534-626051702902873440-IMG_9475-S....

Re: R100RS 1982 75000MLS noise from alternator area.

The fairing can make the sound quite loud and even distort what you think it might be. If it happens in neutral, it won't be wheels or brakes. Some noises that I have experienced within that fairing. 1. Front cover slightly loose. 2. Brake line grommet slipped out..line was rattling in the fairing....
