Long story short, in the driveway is now this 92 R100RT, 75K km, new tires and great shape. All it needs is L side PRT seals- do you have to bleed those?

    There a solution to the brake problem no one thought of! That is a fine looking RT. Don't worry about the PRT seals. They are self bleeding.

    A real motorcycle

    1973 LWB 60/5

    I put a photo of my bike in other thread, but I am so proud of it, I wanted to put it in this one. She sat up for 12 years and I refurbished her...just like new. I've got the side covers too, but you know how easy they are to lose.

    NICE Toaster
    Are your mufflers mounted on the correct side? Doesn't look like they sweep upward like they should?
    Here is my SWB Toaster. It sat for 20 years before I rescued it from an open shed:

    Hank -

    Check the picture of lastrada's /5...that's what the mufflers should look like. Unless the angle in your picture distorts the view, it looks like your mufflers needed to be rotated 180 degrees to get the proper slope change where the circumferential weld is.

    Actually my mufflers do slope like Lastrada's.
    RobertKLee's mufflers look like "Norton Pea Shooters" and again, it might just be the angle of the shot, but they look pretty near level.

    As seen on lastrada's bike, the bottom of the muffler from the back tip all the way to the pipe is relatively "flat" with the angled portion on top. It could be the angle of your picture, but although the "slope" looks right on yours, the angled part of your muffler looks 180 off.. ie on bottom.

    They are some sort of after market muffler that was on the bike when I got it twenty years ago. They won't mount any other way.

    To rotate 180 you would need to switch sides, or the mounting tabs wouldn't mount to anything

    the chute

    Spent the day in the arms of the GPS, exploring back roads up in the hills an hour west of home. This pic is at Crooked Chute Log Slide near Combermere, Ontario. Before it became a lame amusement park ride, this is where the logs got past a waterfall where they would otherwise jam up.
