  1. Bad Points Good Points

    Okeedokee, verified the points are not in question Thanks to Lew for the pics and the rest of the responders on the points issue. Threw the timing light on last night, (haven't had a chance to dig...
  2. How would you know........

    ....... if they are part of that batch? I got mine from my favorite BMW guys in Boise. Pretty sure Fred would be aware of, and not sell, those. But it's worth looking at. RF made that notation in his...
  3. Makes sense

    So I replied to Wayne, but your reply just confirms what I was thinkng but haven't had a chance to play since I found the cold start issue. I think I will rest my timing back to my original marks...
  4. Thanks

    I considered this, now I will try it. Makes sense. I was on Robert F's site and he was saying he nominally has the gap set at .019. I started there and couldn't start it. So, I went to the "factory"...
  5. 78 R100RS New Points / Plugs Hard Starting cold

    So, I decided it was time to replace the points on my bike. Threw in new plugs as well. Gapped the points to spec .016, would not start. Had to retard the timing to the end of the travel before it...

    About those full tanks.......

    Yeah, I thought about that after I wrote that. Most aircraft have a little dwell time between flights (maybe days or weeks) and basically, it is recommended for an aircraft that will be sitting for a...

    Volkswagon, BMW, Ferarri, etc (auto dealers) all use the same style of clamp that we have on our bikes. I was with a friend of mine in San Fransisco and he has some good friends at a Ferrari shop. I...

    Full Tank

    Works in aircraft and is actually recommended. Especially in areas such as where you live. Just FYI.
  9. Well.....

    First off, Kurt that is a nice job of illustrating the basic principle of cg. I can't argue with your premise at all. I can speak from experience, as I am sure a lot of us can.

    What Rick said........

    The red light activity at 3500-4000 is a good indication of a loose or marginal connection somewhere,as this corresponds to the onset of the first vibration zone in most Airhead engines.

  11. Yep

    The one on the right is what I carry. Got a piece of bar stock, chamferred the ends, works great every time I have used it. Plus, the two pieces, (bolt and rod) are shorter and fit nicely in the tool...
  12. Correct Tire Pressure?

    Actually what Robert says is right on the mark. I learned a couple of sets of tires ago that the pressures under the seat are not to be believed, unless, you are running "classic" tires. And of those...

    78 R100RS rear brake disc cracks

    So, has anyone ever seen the rear disc/rotor crack between the cooling holes? My 78 R100RS has cracks between almost every set of holes going center outwards. I had a rear bearing fail on my way home...

    Just made the leap to Pirelli

    Sport Demon. For my 78 R100RS. Love them. Plus, the rear tire fits without interfering with the drive shaft housing. I had Dunlop D404's which were fine, (had to use the axle spacer to clear the...

    Sticky: My Daughter just bought a 2005 F650CSA...........

    With 3700 miles as of March 6, 2013! Wish I had seen it first;) At least I got to ride it first, HAH! It's her first bike and I think it will serve her well. It is essentially brand new. Fresh...

    Hey Kent,
    That is an interesting bit of information. I never really knew that. But, I have to say that with these new shocks, in their softest settings, the handling is very much more sure footed....

    I will get you one. I think they look pretty good. (Personal opinion of course). I never paid much attention to the little bit of chrome on the originals so I think they are okeedokee being all...

    Agreed. Yeah, that's pretty much the dilemma. Not much inventory in his area, and the cost can start to add up in time, energy, and money to track one down, go to it, and then possibly find it wasn't...
  19. And that was what I was wanting to go for....

    And that was what I was wanting to go for. Something close to the look of the original. I got both with the Progressives. Not much different in the looks and a whole lot better handling. Best of both...

    Well thanks Mike and Mark. That pretty much answers my questions. I appreciate your input and I'm sure we'll be seeing my BIL on here when he gets himself a Beemer (;-)

    Thanks Mark. That is helpful information and makes sense. So does it reset itself if it is a battery problem?I'll pass it along. He's going to get the bike looked at next Tuesday at the Boise BMW...

    New to me 98 R1100RT question

    Actually new to my Brother in Law. There is a rumor (from the current owner who is sellling the bike @20k for $5100) that the ABS (on this bike will not work if the battery is weak or temp is 30...

    Thanks. I'll take that under advisement. The Fleabay idea is interesting, and could possibly be beneficial. I'll think about that.

  24. Rear Shocks. I must be crazy..........

    So, for a little while, I have been noticing quite a bit of rocking horse action in turns, (not fun). and basically crap handling on my 78 R100RS, marginally acceptable on straight freeway driving....

    About 10 years ago I had to replace the diaphragms. When I opened them up, they had the consistency of bubble gum and were torn. Noticed when the bike wouldn't do over 70 with throttle wide open. I...
