    Stupid oil filter question

    The filter I just replaced on my latest /5 project came with two rubber ends. I'm assuming those are replacements for the original small black o-rings that went on the ends of the filter, but figured...

    Where to cut in a fuse on a /5

    My new /5 is one of the early pre-fuse models. Any thoughts on the best wire/spot to add an inline fuse? The fused bike diagram shows two of them, would rather stick with one for simplicity, and put...

    Thanks guys. Sub frame and swingarm are ok, it was a front end collision. I suppose if I wanted to badly enough, I could have a good machine shop switch the necks or just the right side brace with...

    Shopping for a new frame for my LWB R75/5. Was there any difference in the main frame on the SWB and LWB /5? Is there any way to transfer the numbers from one to the other to match the title on the...

    How about a deadbeat alert system?

    Hey mods - in light of a recently closed thread which I found useful: how about creating a buyer review sub-forum? We've got a flea market but no way to review sellers or warn off other members. Also...

    "Plenty" is relative. Did you know you can actually lose weight by using a smaller plate? You still feel full, because your brain tells you to.

    That sounds about right. Yeah, paint is down the list for me too. So far I've never seen a paint job that made the bike any faster, safer, or more fun to ride. Except maybe the pink paint on...

    Yep, that's kind of been my experience with my R75 - it all adds up. I'm hoping to come in under 3k, but expecting it'll be around that before I'm done.

    If someone has one out there for $500 I'll...

    Another what's it worth question

    Happened across a 1970 R50/5. It's in barn find condition - dirty, moderately rusty, rubber and seat cover dry-rotted, and the last guy pulled the cylinders and pistons off for honing before giving...

    Thanks. Someone I asked said the single cable ones can be dual cable setups with one port blocked. Any idea if that's true on your '82?
