    Yeah, the language seemed pretty inflammatory. There's a successful HD dealership in town, but the nearest BMW place is a hour away. Plus, this part of the Bay area is kind of blue collar. The...

    RPM-Specific Surge - 1987 K100RT

    My daily commuter developed a mild surge that always happens at 2500-3000 rpm. I wonder if the way it misbehaves at a specific engine speed means this is an electrical issue, not a fuel system one? ...

    OK, the fuse is good. So, I'm still leaning toward the theory that the excess heat from the engine (without the cooling action of the fan) somehow compromised the flasher relay. The bike goes in...

    Checked the fan this morning. It turns, but it's stiff. I would expect it to spin with light pressure, but no. I think the fan motor is fried. I'll put a meter across that fuse tonight before bed.

    Turn signals out: 1987 K100RT

    When I was a kid in Idaho we called the "rolling stop" a "California stop". Now that I live in California, I know why. Still, the only time I've been pulled over on a bike was when I slowly rolled...

    I liked it. It was convenient as a small backpack off the bike, and it was narrow enough not to limit steering. I think I have the 10 liter size. Build quality was just fine, too, except for the...

    Tank removal, 1987 K100RT
