    Yeah, grammatical and spelling errors give me a twinge as well.

    All parts installed and the bike was ridden today for about an hour with no issues.
    Always nice when a plan comes together.

    If it is only used for lubrication, then why not use whatever motor oil you have around the shop?
    It's not like it is in a high stress environment.

    Synching the throttle bodies is required. They do what the carbs do on an airhead.

    The highway pegs are nice to have on long trips, just like the throttlemeister. I'd keep them.

    Update

    My bud has ordered the HES plate assy, coil, and plug wires from euromotoelectric.
    Should be here by Thursday.
    We might have it operational by the weekend.

    As Johnny would say "More to come".

    Complete toast. THe insulation is crumbling off all the wires. So that's one mystery solved.

    This is a friend's bike.
    Died on the road. After cooling a bit, it restarts and runs for about 45 seconds.
    Pulled the coil and noticed a very slight bulge and a separation where the...

    In checking the Max BMW fiche, I see that the top boxes for the 100 and 1150 RT are the same part number and so is the latch repair kit.
    Sure seems as though they are interchangeable.

    Hyper Lites are also very good brake light supplements. Also a bit less expensive.

    /7s don't have a huge alternator, so LED aux lights may be a good solution for seeing down the road.:wave

    Can't be cause he retired. Moving north on retirement is against the law. You have to move south.

    I think I see a foot peg IN FRONT of the front cylinder.
    If it's the same on the other side, the rider would look like a break dancer trying to ride it.

    Nah, that would be too easy.

    Who knows why they had to make it more difficult.

    OK, it was my first time seeing an engine turn backwards. They still seem to be going for the "quirky" award.
