    So I should take the rubber plugs off, right? The guy that cleaned the tank might have put the plugs on. I will call him, and see what he says. Thanks!

    The fuel sender is not sealed by...

    Cold Weather Oil Drip

    My '78 R80/7 is as dry as a bone when the weather is warm. After riding in cool weather, however, about a teaspoon of oil drips out, but only after the bike sits in the garage for about 12 hours. ...

    Yes, the light is repro, but it's a common one. I have identified the BMW wires, but I don't know where to connect them on the taillight. I have no idea how to test the functions on the bench!
