  1. Thanks Omega Man

    I was looking among the forums. Sort of 'I can't see the forest for the trees'. I'll post there later when I have more time. I should have left the house half an hour ago.
  2. I need some parts for an R1100RT. Where should I post?

    I have bought a damaged 2000 R1100RT. It needs the front and left side fairings among other things. I don't see a forum heading for "WANT ADS". Where should this be posted?
  3. Excellent link Herr Ziegelstein. Danke.

    Well, therein lies an interesting question.

    How does one say ABS in German?

    On the backside of each main fairing, adjacent to the part numbers, I see >PBT+PC<

    A lot of the epoxys don't soften the plastic for best adhesion. I think those that soften the substrate do the best job.
  6. What type of plastic is the fairing on my K1200LT made of?

    I'm getting very close to being ready to reassemble my K1200LT. I have bought all of the parts to make it rideable, and only lack a few cosmetic pieces to make it gorgeous again.

    My right main...

    My first bike was a so-called dirt bike, a nearly new 175cc Honda. But that was over 40 years ago. My last stint on a dirt bike was probably 34 years ago. It was borrowed from a friend and ridden...

    But the problem is If I go north from my house, I hit gravel/sand roads within a mile. If I'm going to some destinations it is two miles out of the way to use another route. Riding on dirt roads is...

    I think it has to do with the torque the engine exhibits and transmits to the machine, even while standing still, when the throttle is advanced.

    BMW R-bikes on unimproved roads

    It seems to me that every R-Bike I've ridden on a dirt, gravel, or sand road felt somewhat squirrely. My theory is that the torque of the engine is the cause for this issue. The latest I've tried...

    Missed it by THAT much...

    I went back to look at the K100 this morning. Sure enough the side stand was down. When I retracted it, the clutch lever functioned as it should. Actually it was functioning as it should all...

    Ohhhh, it's definitely on the side stand. I'll either sit on the bike and retract it, or set it on the center stand and try it again. I have a feeling that's the issue.

    So the worst case scenario would probably be the jammed throwout bearing. Do you suppose it can be freed by tweaking the lever? A tear down for replacement would probably be the same as that for a...

    Stuck clutch lever on '84 K100RT

    I have been offered a 1984 K100RT. It's a pretty clean bike, but it has not been run in nearly a year. You know, the "it was running when it was parked" story. They are asking $800 for it. I have...

    I went to the Chromeheads website as suggested and found a thread with their search function. Even though I have not yet been approved to post there, I could read this:...

    but it is exactly the same switch found on my R1150RT and K1200GT.

    Later edit: They say it may take a few days to have my request for inclusion to be approved.
  17. How do I remove my R1200C's ignition switch and wiring?

    I recently bought a slightly damaged R1200C that got about 2" too close to something. It broke the windshield, headlight, headlight bracket, and speedometer housing. The bike sat out for several...

    Hey Moose, I'm even newer than you.

    I just joined today.

    I live north of Wichita, and work so far south I'm almost in Haysville. When I bought my first BMW 40 years ago, I lived in Derby.

    I was tipped off to a group of guys...
