    I believe if you look closely, you'll see the parking bulb on when the headlight is on too. Keeps the filament from breaking?

    I always take the front wheel off to get the rear wheel out. Works every time. And saves time. I set the front end down on the fork tubes rather than hold up the rear end.

    I'm not near Chicago, but I personally like have the pinstripes exposed to the elements. I want my legs to wear off the stripes over time. I would suggest going to a big car show or a hot rod shop...

    I've always wondered why aftermarket carbs are better than the Bings. I liked the accelerator pumps on the Dellortos, but the Mikunis don't have that, right?

    I always use non detergent for break in. Less additives keep the cylinder walls from glazing. Drain it as soon as you get a few hours on it and are happy that its not using oil.

    Sometimes they just give up. New spring is cheap.
    Not trying to criticize, and maybe thats how it was when you got it, but please don't use split lock washers anywhere on our beloved BMWs.

    Just loosen the valve adjustment screws all the way so the valves are closed at bottom dead center. Probably easier to tell if air leaks out the exhaust if you take the mufflers off. Likewise with...

    I'd just run it. Probably some over zealous PO put it on there "just in case". My thought is if it was really leaking, that glob of silicone wouldn't change anything. Besides, it doesn't look like...

    Mine is a 72, and as far as I know, that system was used on all the /5 levers. If you were working on a /6 and up, the post from Kurt above would work.

    Been a while since I've had Dellortos, but in general, any carb that runs better with the air screws all the way in is because a vacuum leak is replacing the controlled vacuum leak that goes through...

    The squeaky hinge noise is probably the crankcase breather. You can take the breather housing off and verify, its the piece the breather hose attaches to at the forward end, next to the starter.

    Maybe I'm missing the point, but the maintenance you're talking about doesn't require engine removal. Very little does, except powder coating the frame. Anyway, the easiest way I've found is to...
