Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
Hi Folks, figure make it two for a charm today.
I'm in the later stages of converting my RT to a non-faired, /7esque naked bike. Anyone who's ever had the RT fairing off the bike knows that there...
OK, I feel better! Thanks again Kent, i always believed in you!
I may regret my last post about acknowledging as aftermarket:
After some googling I came up with this image which is EXACTLY what was on my bike (but not my bike). See attached.
Thanks Kent, and that stinks! as i would have sworn on my first born that they were stock. I had an '83 about 15 years ago with the same set up, now my '84 with the same thing? not stock? It looked...
Can someone explain what the two fuses/holders that fit on the top, forward facing ledge of the fairing are for?
Max's fiche does not show the fairing from the cockpit side.
Thank you Gentlemen!
thanks Gerald... how does yours run? Another full length going from the battery to the relay or do you have a shorter run going from the solenoid to the relay?
Hi People, I'm looking to replace my OEM battery to solenoid cable on my 1984 R80RT.
I'm thinking of one of nifty ones sold by Euro Motor Electric (EME).
My question is this: should the new...
Assuming your pre-load was adjusted properly during the last cleaning and packing of the bearings, should the need ever arise for different shims and the expectation be correct that what you had on...
Nope, I traded the leathery bellow for gators when i still had the fairing on the bike, now I'm going to the cups/wipers for a cleaner look (fairing off headlight bucket mounted to fork tubes). I...
Did you need to trim the length because the strip was too long or did they not fit into the slot? (wrong size along the long side).
Lostboy, i'm REALLY cheap...
but in reality, i was informed that the new felts coming from the factory don't fit correctly and that i should use cleaned old ones. I don't have any old ones so i...
Ok, get ready for one of the more inane questions, (but i can't help it)
My '8 R80RT is losing it's gators and going to conventional black seal cover/cups and it seems i'll need to make my own...
thank you people! See now there is a new thread for other idiots like me to find this answer without bothering you again!.
But they won't probably search at all and ask anyway! :)
Can anyone confirm or deny the numbers below for front turn signals for a 1984 R80/7? Or any other brands and numbers they can offer for this application?

No worries Paul, no hostility taken... all in good fun.
Love your work over the years, love your lifestyle as depicted in your website.
Ouch! that hurt Paul! :)
So no Peening/Peaning/Peining for me.
Hi Folks, I've read through much of the archived posts about how to remove the peened screws holding the butterfly flap to the shaft on our bings, but can't find anything about properly peening them...
what's a "go-no go" feeler? link please?
Every time I log on I love taking note of the headcount of all the forum sections:
29 K bikes
5 Straight 6
8ninety8, what year is your bike?
I was looking for lightened pins myself at CycleWorks for my '84 R80, but Dan at cycleworks only has the pins for the earlier style piston pins with the external circlip. Not for the later bikes with...
Thanks IKchris and Bikerfish. Not that it matters really but to address the point, the two fuses I speak of are on the fairing dash and are EOM. They are the two which have the screw out plug...
