Removal of air injection system
I recently purchased a 1982 R65. After getting better aquainted with the bike I noticed the pulse air injection system (pipes) at both sides of the engine. I don't like the look plus after some research I found that the system was installed mainly on US bikes due to air quality issues in California. In any case I want to remove the system. The remaval should not impact the operation of the engine, in fact it may be beneficial.The process appears to be simple and easy. Has anyone gone through the process? Any recommondations or suggestions?
Plugs in the cylinder head
My recommendation based on experience is to lockwire the plugs that you use in the cylinder heads. If you decide not to, you better carry a spare. I had one fall out coming home from Nova Scotia. I was not easy finding one so i could make it home.
