    I found it! I found it!

    It is a product called "Ethanol Equalizer" mfg. by a company called "Liquid Performance."

    Not saying it is any good, but I thought I would try it.

    On my '78 R100/7, I have consistently stayed around 40 MPG - usually a little lower - 36 to 38. I am not a "hotfoot" rider and always accelerate slowly and don't ever race it or hot rod - just to be...

    Thanks to all of you for your help, though!!

    Perhaps I will remember or will stumble onto the product again!

    No, but wish you were correct! For a moment I doubted myself as I thought, "maybe I didn't get it from a FORUM, but from the BMW ON article." Though I thought that article was very good, and...

    My R100/7 had a similar problem about 1-1/2 years ago. I would be going along, and for a split second the power and lights would go out, but because I was in gear and moving about 60 MPH, it started...

    No, am sure it was here somewhere related to BMW motorcycles. However the thread could have been on some other topic, and drifted over to the gas additive topic. I just wish I had written it down!...

    A couple of things I would do to try that can't hurt your old hub.

    When you put in your new bearing race ("cup") use a dremel with a grind stone on it . Grind a slight (very slight) groove into...

    As you may know, my mind says that it has to be the Airhead forum as I think that is the only one I have checked on in the last week (I think!!).

    I just should have written down the name of the...

    See my earlier post. Could not be Star Tron. Posting was on thread that was recent, and when I clicked on the provided hyperlink, the web site looked different, and the product was only listed as...

    I am pretty sure that this is not the thread. Several reasons. This thread's latest comment is from back in July. For the thread I am wanting to have come up on my visit a couple or so days ago,...

    Nope, was not Stabil.

    I searched a few words, but I can't find the comment on the thread. It was for a brand I never heard of, and wanted to try it.

    I did go the website by the hyperlink, but...
  14. Finding thread that had a comment about an additive to treat fuel with ethanol

    In the last couple of days, I read a comment from someone about an additive to treat fuel with ethanol that had a hyperlink.

    I have forgotten the name of the product, and I can't remember which...

    Could be, as Windows seems to do its own thing!! I have no control over that. Sometimes it aggravates me to try to shut off the computer, and I can't because it is automatically "updating" files. ...

    Logging on to Forum

    In the past, I have been able to log on to the FORUM and they "remembered" me. About 2 - 3 months ago, that stopped due to some new software/hardware upgrade done by the BMWMOa. I would be auto...

    Thanks. While this whole subject is enticing to do some engineering experimentation I think it best to just do what has worked for so many years for so many people. Next time I change, I will get...

    Agreed. I forgot about the shim ring. And I DO assemble as you suggest. However . . . If it is, indeed, the squeezability that is desired then virtually any material would do (viton, teflon, buna,...

    If my memory serves me correctly, the o-ring used for the oil filter housing is one of the softest I have ever seen. It appears to be made of teflon, but that doesn't make sense to me as teflon is...

    My purchase DID have the lower supports as shown in pics and they still cracked all over the place. My actual bike sub-frame was perfect, however. It is the bag mount frame that takes the beating. ...

    You can call them. Don't bother to email. I am still waiting on a response from about 6 month's ago. I gave up.

    I don't think they would even know what it is!!

    I think you would have to buy one, or go to a good old fashioned auto or supply house to find one to use.

    The ones I have seen are pretty cheap...

    Keep in mind that the original BMW bags and mounts (in my opinion) were pretty junky.

    The brackets were notorious for cracking and needing welded up. The bags were also notorious for falling off...
