    Frame mods finished

    I just received the frame. I think they did a good job. I can't post pictures but I could email them to somebody who can. I hope that doesn't break any kind of forum rule.

    Haynes, Clymer or ? R100GS

    Online info for airheads is fantastic. I'd also like to have a shop manual in hand. Between Haynes and Clymer, which is better? They both seem to cover all airheads. Is there a manual specific to...

    I think I probably worded my question wrong. Rather than talk about shortening the down tubes I should have said raising the engine mounts to top of frame rails as seen many times. Six of one, half...

    That's brilliant. The pegs are rubber with little square blocks and BMW stamp. I don't have as new to compare but they look pretty decent.

    Pine-Sol

    After reading the Pine-Sol carb. soak threads I decided to try it on the DR650 engine.
    I used a paint brush over the whole motor. It kind of stays thick and doesn't run off to bad. Every half hour,...

    Mileage via steering head bearings?

    I bought the 1991 BumbleBee basket case without speedometer. The pieces of the bike don't look overly abused, just cruddy. I'm trying to determine the ballpark mileage. The steering head bearings...

    Yes I've seen that kit mentioned, and if memory serves, the jury is still out on the strength of it. I believe the threading into the aluminum is thin. And filter access would be a hurdle.

    I have...

    I'm just starting my own airhead journey so take this advice for what it's worth. I think a little frame bracing would be required for a restomod. I will be sliding a 4130 tube into the backbone,...

    Hi Doug

    Yes I was able to confirm, using a variation of your method, that it will fit. Thanx. My concern is removing and replacing engine intact. It was more of a bugger to get out than expected judging by...

    Name change?

    How is that done? I need a name that more accurately reflects my personality.
    I think "Subterranean Slime Dog" should do it.:scratch
