    Kurt,

    I forgot all about that. Now that you mentioned it, I remember taking the carb off the cylinder and letting them hang the last time.

    Yes, a great feeling when it started up first shot!

    Nothing is wrong with the front brake. This is normal for BMW front drum brakes, they don't work going backwards. Use the rear brake when stopped on a hill.

    I know on my 1982R100RT, the left cylinder is nearer the front of the engine than the right. I would guess yours is similar. It would not surprise me that one cable is longer than the other.

    On second thought

    I convinced myself that locktite is ok here. No locking washers so i feel it needs something. I do remember upon disassembly they were hard to break free.

    Inner stud bolts

    Kurt,
    I saw this too but I could not tell if he was referring to the crank bearing holder or the timing chest bolts. I think i should just pass on the locktite for now. Do you have an opinion?

    Both good suggestions. It looks like i may have to wait until i hit my start button to make the decision on which way i go. What do they do at the factory when the bike rolls off the assembly line?

    Isopropyl alcohol on rubber makes it very slippery and it evaporates quickly. I've used this to the windscreen **** many times and have never torn one off. Use it when you remove them too.

    Where the big black ground wire attaches to the starter motor, there is a female spade that is difficult to see. I'm guessing this is where that black wire goes.
