    I am newly ABC Member #14450. Thank you. I am about 2 hours from WB. I will tackle this over the winter. I don't think it is an adjustment issue in that it works fine until well into a run, and then...

    I think my new to me 1982 R100RS (sold the 83) is near end of life in the clutch. Seems OK until the bike warms up then it seems to engage at various positions of the handle. Is this something a...

    I went and checked. This is the wire that goes to the fuse in the pic. And there is an outlet that it eventually goes to. Cool. Smaller than a cig lighter though. Is it a special size that I don't...

    "Do you have an external power socket?" I don't know. Where would I look for that?

    I don't remember this wire on my 1983 R100RS but I could be wrong.
    Thank you.

  10. Difference between 81-84 R100RS and an 89 model year

    I am new to this to an extent. I think they changed to a mono lever rear suspension and the side cover is different. Any other notable differences between an early 80's and late 80's R100? There is a...

    Great story. I find it interesting that if you drive a German made vehicle and hang on said vehicle forums good things happen. Such has been my experience for over 13 years.

    I found several similar to the max site. I am looking for reasonably priced aftermarket parts. $355 for a rotor is insane. You can get one for a Volvo for less than $100.

    No..that's in gear. I noticed a lot of "backlash" while riding and shifting gears, or going on and off throttle. Sort of like a chain that was real loose.
