    One either appreciates classics for what they are, or they don't. My 1967 Camaro and 1957 BelAir didn't corner and stop like a new one either, but they were a source of great satisfaction.

    I sold my 92 R100RT to buy a 2004 R1150R. The 1150 is faster, more comfortable, better handling, more reliable, orders of magnitude better brakes, and gets better gas mileage. What's not to like? ...

    Especially for a single row chain, this does not make sense. In fact, I believe it to be the other way around that the only one you can get is the part number 11-31-1-335-934 chain with the master...

    Not so. In fact, the link you gave indicates that the 31 42 1 233 956 lower clamp can be used from 1976 to 1984. The lack of compatibility that you describe begins with the monolever bikes from...

    OUCH! Wrong tool!

    As far as the timing, point the timing marks at each other. Loosen the valves (if you haven't already) so the cam will stay put. The mark on the crank pulley is not easy to...

    I think they are anti-stop rather than anti-lock. I put a dual ATE set-up from a 1977 R100RS on my 1976 R75/6 with no drama. I also used and recommend the handlebar mounted master cylinder. I used...

    Rod, did you replace the driveshaft? Mine had a very slight "on-center" feel in the upper joint so I replaced it and am planning on having the take-off rebuilt as a spare. I couldn't see putting it...
