    Broken hose?

    As rxcrider mentioned, the overflow hoses should be long and run down by the RH front footpeg.

    My hoses are the correct length, but I found problem on my RS with the internal hoses. The internal...

    I didn't replace my clutch pushrod, even though the felt was gone. Actually, it wasn't until...

    Toasted gearbox

    At about 50k miles, I started having a hesitation when accelerating in 2nd gear. I finally figured out it was a bent shift fork. By the time I sent it to be repaired, two bearings had failed,...

    Is this it?

    Thanks for the responses.
    Yes, a PO removed the canister at some point.
    As you can see from this picture, there is another connector going to the purge valve, and it's plugged in. Not sure if...

    Mystery Connector

    Hi. I'm close to completing the installation of my rebuilt gearbox, and I have a lonely connector that doesn't appear to have a mate. It's one with a release spring on it, common to this 1995...

    All right, then

    Thanks to everyone for the input. I had come to the same conclusion as Paul. However, I've seen a lot of pictures where folks had pulled the final drive/swing arm off as an assembly, so I was...

  14. 95 R-RS Throttle cable

    Thanks, Ed.
    I don't think that I routed it incorrectly. I kept the old cable in place and routed the new one right beside it before I removed the old cable.

    The cable doesn't pull the throttle...
  15. Throttle cable

    What you don't see in the previous picture is that the sheathing on the cable only goes about 3mm into the grip, so it easily slips out during riding. I see no way to totally secure the cable...

    I never got any response from my original post, so I've added some pictures to show the condition I'm referring to.

    This first picture shows the throttle cable in its normal position on the grip. ...

    Here's a reason

    I'll give you a reason that you'd want to be able to start a M/C in gear with the clutch engaged: Your clutch cable breaks and you have to ride the bike home with no clutch. This happened to me a...

    Tap is out

    I should have posted earlier. The tap was removed by the BMW dealer. I paid more than $50, though.
    They did a good job on that, but they messed up my idle. I had mentioned that the bike idled at...

    Cylinder head back on
