    Shinkos

    I'm on my second set of Shinkos. They work very well on my R100RS and their wear is quite acceptable. As a rule, I avoid running any tire down to the last bit of safe tread, so the 8-9K miles of...

    Motoren-Israel spin-on oil filter mod

    I've had my eye on the Motoren-Israel spin-on filter adapter kit for a while, as I hate the OEM oil filter system on my 1983 R100RS. Before I pop for the Motoren-Israel mod, I'd like to hear from...

    They are certain made of a "different" material, aren't they? At $3 a pop, I've thought of using generic o-rings, but the soft, spongy nature of the OEM ones sorta put me off. I'm not sure how...

    RS cables

    As luck would have it, I replaced these very cables on my 1983 R100RS last week. I noticed the package they came in said "left." I'd expected they would be different lengths, but they measured the...

    BMW fascination with Technology

    I think BMW at times tries a bit too hard to bring advanced technology to its vehicles, along the lines of the old saw about "the answer to a question no one asked." It's been that way for a while,...

    high/erratic idle on 83 R100RS

    Some time back I was struggling to resolve a puzzle. My 83 R100RS' idle climbed when it was warmed up. Long story short, I was convinced it was something related to the carburettors or their...
