Re: The Elusive R100CJ (R100 Classic for Japan)

There seems to be someone breaking one in Japan. There is a photo of one and a Google translate of the orange panel at the bottom of the page mentions a cj vin number

Re: Yorkshire Lunch Meetings 2020

Having been to the Waterwheel at Howden with the ‘other club’, I personally am not so sure about it. The car park is excellent and if the weather is fine the outside seating is good but the indoor seating is tables of four only. Additionally, the food now seems to lean towards cooked lunches only, w...

Re: Cleaning alloy castings

If you have already coated the alloy with a sealer, Rub’n’Buff may not ‘take’ to the surface. It works best on bare metal.

Re: Hello to you all

CV, the original poster said the bike was made in May 77 (when the original silver RS would already be in production), but was a pre-production model for the 78 model - hence the colour scheme being a 78 one and the snowflake wheels. He did use the term pre-production, by which I think he meant pre-...

Re: BMW R65 Head and Valves Hitting Piston - Valve Clearance?

Have the big-end bolts come loose? If so, the hammering may have made the big-end cap oval.

Re: BMW R65 Head and Valves Hitting Piston - Valve Clearance?

How far did you have to adjust the clearances when you set them before the ride?
Did you make sure to adjust each side with the piston at tdc on the compression stroke for that side or did you just set the pistons to tdc and set both sides without rotating the crankshaft?

Re: Thee most effective ear plugs in the universe

King Herald, Beware of pushing any earplugs in too far. I spent almost three-quarters of an hour at an audiologists clinic the other day having impacted wax removed from my ears following a two-and-a-half week trip to mainland Europe using earplugs every day. I was using the plugs that look like a d...

Re: Fitting gear lever extension.

1) Soapy water (washing-up liquid)
or
2) take the rubber off, push it into the extension and then push the whole thing on, again using soapy water

Re: R80RS

Nice to see a picture of my old K1 Touring! In discussion with BMW I was told that thirty bikes were converted by the BMW holding depot at Crowle before being shipped out to dealers. I was actually trying to find what happened to the original rear bodywork but the person I spoke to at Crowle remembe...

Re: Starling bank account for traveling

My wife recently went to the bank to pay a MasterCard monthly bill. It was on a card we keep as a back-up and only use once in a while to keep it active. The amount was under £10 but the bank would not accept cash - they said it had to be paid from a bank account. They said it was to prevent money l...

Re: R80 Tubeless valve

Mark, Having looked at the two valve types, I would say that the rubber type would be best. It will seal at three points - the inner face of the rim, it will expand into the sides of the valve hole in the rim, and the small collar will help seal at the outside face. The metal type only has the seal ...

Re: Pay German parking fine

I’ll have a look at your other post, thanks. The fine is €20. I parked where three other German reg bikes were parked so thought I would be ok. When I came back, the three original bikes had gone but a couple of different German bikes were there - without tickets! To be fair, they probably arrived a...

Re: Pay German parking fine

Hi Mark,
I downloaded that app but then had second thoughts about putting in my bank details. If I can pay by card then I may use it if I can’t pay cash locally.
Thanks

Thanks, Richard, I’ll give that a try on Monday. Paying on line direct from my Sterling bank account would cost as much in fees as the fine and I don’t want to put all my bank details into a money transfer company’s app. I’m sure they must have some system for people who don’t do the internet.

Pay German parking fine

Does anyone know if it is possible to pay a German parking fine in any other way other than some form of bank transfer?
I was thinking maybe a directly at a German bank, post office, ‘Rathaus’ or some such.Thanks,

Re: R80 Tubeless valve

Mark, I’m afraid that the leak will more than likely be caused by corrosion on the inside sealing face of the rubber valve seat. I had this problem myself and the only way to cure it was to remove the tyre and valve, wire brush and clean the face with wet and dry paper, giving the face a protective ...
