    Great idea! Once I cursed myself for not taking such precautions when trying to get that tiny spring-loaded steel ball back inside a /7 kill switch. The thing FLEW off into what I thought was the...

    I don't think he's saying that there will be horrendous problems, but rather saying that there isn't really any reason to use them. I've been told the same from someone who knows more about these...

    The ones that Hans sells (Hucky's) are metal and the one I received from him looks identical to the original that's in my R90S.

    Thanks much, gents.

    Yes, the flasher worked without the key before and after the switch was swapped out - having the spring back keeps the light from staying on. I haven't noticed any battery...

    A question that is probably very stupid, but here it is anyway.

    I took my R75/5 on a quick errand the other day. After about 10 minutes I came back and there was a guy standing by it who wanted to...

    Thanks for all the advice - much appreciated!

    I will start by checking the seat, since that makes sense to me too, and go from there. I'd rather correct the issue myself - if possible - anyway...

    Thanks - yes the new H-B cases do fit in the same racks as the old Krausers did, although I did have to add some spacers to the latch area since those weren't lining up correctly at all. It was a bit...

    Hepco-Becker bag mounts

    I'm trying to find the correct bag mounts for a 1973 R75/5 LWB restoration that I'm working on.

    I have the H-B "Krauser" replica bags. They work in the original Krauser mounts on my R90S with a...

    I had a /7 that seemed "about" that noisy, I guess, when it was cold, but was a bit quieter when it was warm. Is that how it sounds when it is warm too?

    I always attributed it to rocker clearance....
