    Dealer mount but no balance

    I quit balancing my Metzler's years ago. Just put the red dot that is on the tire next to the valve stem.

    I made the mistake of taking my bike to the dealer and they had the red dot opposite the...

    I don't think it is the cable as everything is very smooth. In the past I have had speedo cables that went bad... This one acts like something is going on in the speedo head.

    Matt,

    Your articles are the main reason I still read the BMWMOA magazine. These new BMW bikes don't appeal to me at all.

    Keep up the good work. I feel sure that if you made a book out of...

    I have a friend who just recently bought his first BMW Airhead. He bought a nice 1983 R100RT with only 25,000 miles.

    The problem is that his Oil Light (Yellow) intermittently goes on and off. He...

    I agree that the problem is opening the throttle when you are cranking the starter. Could be valves; but, not likely if it warms up and runs fine.

    I rode to Canada from Texas in 2001. By the time I got back I had "tennis elbow" so bad I was shifting without the clutch on my 78 R/80.

    In 2004 I rode from Texas to Alaska and back with the Easy...

    Wow! You are sure right about that. The bike looks great in the photos; but, that speedo and tach sure tell the story.

    I missed that.

    Thanks for pointing it out.

    It is the turn signal buzzer. I have had one on both of my airheads. It only beeps when you are in gear with the clutch out. I like mine because the blinker is hard to see in the direct sunlight.

    Yes it works. I bought one as have probably many other thousands of people have bought them.
