    It could be as simple as the lower adjusting bolt loosening and backing out.

    BMW used them when they built your bike. I guess someone "upgraded" the bike at some point after that. Buy the screws from the R1150RT; they are available in black or bright stainless with T25 heads....

    The Oilheads club was the work of Steve Coburn, who died in 2006. The Olheads club wasn't exactly thriving at that point and I think there was maybe one more issue published after his death and that...

    You don't say what is wrong with the clutch.

    Normal wear, you get at the minimum the three main clutch parts plus 6 (minimum) hours labor. The dealer probably put a lot more in there - good stuff...

    Those of who work on these bikes all the time know it's a very real issue. I've even made house calls to fix broken disconnects. Now I update them as a matter of course when I see the old plastic...

    My "dead battery" pile is usually about 80% Westco.

    If you're not after 900+cc and you want something modern, that just leaves 800 right? With stock parts at least. Find a nice R80 Nikasil piston/cylinder set and have the block or cylinders machined...

    You need the tapered intake stubs, different elbows and different cables.

    I suspect it was after that that a dealership (Bob's?) was told they couldn't sell the ball caps with the roundel sewn on. But I don't know the details; I just remember they weren't available any...

    Not the same, and that page actually explains it.

    When Yuasa bought Exide's industrial division, Exide kept their automotive line. Some time around 2000 Exide bought Mareg, which had been making...

    Last I heard the shops do not have the right to create BMW-branded merchandise, though. This was tested in the '90s with roundels sewn onto ball caps and luggage. It went on for a while but BMW...

    You don't need our other thoughts, you need parts. Most likely the clutch is just worn out, but it could be a problem with the throwout bearing, pushrod or spring. You're going to have to go in there...

    Regularly, I said. They don't need to; they ride their bikes and have no problems. If I replace an Odyssey, which has only happened a few times, it is from a charging problem and most likely from...

    The people at BMW who manage their 'Clubs' efforts (who are part of BMW Classic IIRC) are pretty close to that issue as they get into enforcing the word mark and trademark issues with respect to the...

    I have them in pretty much everything, without problems. That includes a lot of customer bikes. Most of them, my own bikes included, don't get charged. In fact I discourage my customers from charging...

    That poor bike.

    Doing that is just a bad idea. If the bike isn't moving and isn't under load, the oil takes a LONG time to heat up but other parts (like the exhaust, and the fairing parts close to...

    BTW Bill, your old /5 has been hanging over the bar at the Moto Saloon for the past few years. Unfortunately, that business is being sold. I think it will hang in my shop for a while... :)

    Or you could buy that points tool from the guy who devised it... read this if you want.

    Available through Cycleworks and maybe directly from Paul Tavernier.

    Assuming you started riding at 18, you are right on schedule. IIRC Pieter DeWaal told us that BMW's research showed that riders were unlikely to purchase new bikes after 63. This was in the context...

    I long for the day when the stop-action slow-mo fast-mo fad ends. I suppose that won't be until we cure ADD.

    That's putting it mildly. The whole notion of doing that (and it's regurgitated on all forums, with everything that is shimmed) depends on it having been right to begin with. IT BROKE. Why would you...

    Well, you need to decide on what forks you actually have. Those two bikes have different forks with different axles which accept different wheels. Spoked wheels are difficult with the early '80s...
