    After some searching it looks like BMW is using Shell Retinax EP2, though I can't seem to find any US stores that carry it. It's probably fine, but when I pack bearings they look like a greasy mess,...

    Oak may have been referring to the stock ones in the 80's bikes and not necessarily a replacement, either way he said to replace with Bosch. I'm really opting to just go with a rebuild, unless people...

    Hey Vech,

    I am by no means advocating building an engine from spare parts or ruling out just buying a complete engine and rebuilding. It would be nice to keep everything matching numbers, but I...

    Maybe measure the clutch lever against the brake lever or perch and perch and see if it's worn, if so compensate with shims?
