    As a rebuild part for the Bosch, not as a new starter. Apparently the bendix drive for a 75 /6 is a one year part and super rare. I called Rick at Motorrad Elektrik and I think I'm going to go the...

    Funny you mention that, I was actually planning on replacing the starter relay and voltage regulator as I have both sitting on my shelf and currently have everything apart for easy access.

    Oak may have been referring to the stock ones in the 80's bikes and not necessarily a replacement, either way he said to replace with Bosch. I'm really opting to just go with a rebuild, unless people...
  4. bosch starter issues and recommendations

    It looks like the original Bosch starter in my R90/6 finally bit the dust. Seemingly out of nowhere the bike wouldn't start, it would crank really slowly and difficultly like it was a weak battery. I...

    Hey Vech,

    Maybe measure the clutch lever against the brake lever or perch and perch and see if it's worn, if so compensate with shims?

    Engine and frame are matching numbers for a 57 R60, not on the orphan list however.

    Anybody home?

    I usually frequent the Airhead forum and it's helped greatly when I'm in a pinch, but now that my R90/6 and Aermacchi are long since built and finished, I'm going to be building an early R60 with...

    My R90/6 also starts right up in the winter. The last couple years I used BMW 10w50 which helped a lot with the cranking, but as the formulation changed from SG/SH to SL, so I'm still using 20w50...

    What you block in the front at the stator is for the crankshaft, which is connected to the flywheel in the rear, so you wouldn't have been able to slide the camshaft anywhere. The cam connects to...

    Now that it's normal hours and the sun is out I got a good look at everything. It appears that the right side centerstand mount is stripped pretty badly and there's a lot of play, the spring that was...
