    Whew!

    Thanks, Kurt!

    Looks like it'd take about 30 minutes. Likely worth every minute.

    20%.....In all of our minds only. I think positively too.

    I'd recommend you have a look on Ebay for real BMW fairing parts. You may find some decent ones that need work. You'll likely save a ton...

    Oh...you removed the spacer

    Sorry, I am late, but NEXT TIME, no need to completely remove the spacer or rear crossover pipe. Move the spacer very rearward (as far as possible without removing it) and you can sneak your fingers...

    I'll never forget my experience

    Just to reinforce the $244 logic, I had an old harness on my 83 R80RT. During a post apocalyptic rebuild process I decided to start it up. Smoke began to billow out of the headlight bucket shortly...

    They are not real expensive (3 years ago), so depending on your attention to little details, you may just want to get new ones. Otherwise, I'd use some thin foam and cram it in there and trim it so...

    Sito

    Sito's are good. I agree on the throaty sound, but it's cool. Believe it or not, JC Whitney has EMGO's. Not sure if they are any good, but at $59.00 can one go wrong?

    It'd be realy nice to look at used oil samples, not just the new ones with artficial aging. Not sure how because we don't have an "official" airhead test fleet. I'd be willing to donate if it helps....
