    A lot of the epoxys don't soften the plastic for best adhesion. I think those that soften the substrate do the best job.
  4. What type of plastic is the fairing on my K1200LT made of?

    I'm getting very close to being ready to reassemble my K1200LT. I have bought all of the parts to make it rideable, and only lack a few cosmetic pieces to make it gorgeous again.

    My right main...

    My first bike was a so-called dirt bike, a nearly new 175cc Honda. But that was over 40 years ago. My last stint on a dirt bike was probably 34 years ago. It was borrowed from a friend and ridden...

    But the problem is If I go north from my house, I hit gravel/sand roads within a mile. If I'm going to some destinations it is two miles out of the way to use another route. Riding on dirt roads is...

    I think it has to do with the torque the engine exhibits and transmits to the machine, even while standing still, when the throttle is advanced.

    BMW R-bikes on unimproved roads

    It seems to me that every R-Bike I've ridden on a dirt, gravel, or sand road felt somewhat squirrely. My theory is that the torque of the engine is the cause for this issue. The latest I've tried...

    I went back to look at the K100 this morning. Sure enough the side stand was down. When I retracted it, the clutch lever functioned as it should. Actually it was functioning as it should all...

    Ohhhh, it's definitely on the side stand. I'll either sit on the bike and retract it, or set it on the center stand and try it again. I have a feeling that's the issue.

    So the worst case scenario would probably be the jammed throwout bearing. Do you suppose it can be freed by tweaking the lever? A tear down for replacement would probably be the same as that for a...

    Stuck clutch lever on '84 K100RT

    I have been offered a 1984 K100RT. It's a pretty clean bike, but it has not been run in nearly a year. You know, the "it was running when it was parked" story. They are asking $800 for it. I have...

    Hey Moose, I'm even newer than you.

    I just joined today.

    I live north of Wichita, and work so far south I'm almost in Haysville. When I bought my first BMW 40 years ago, I lived in Derby.

    I was tipped off to a group of guys...
