    Nice thread.
    But I think I missed something, what has happened to the bike that you are calling it deceased?

    If I missed it, slap me. If not maybe if you let us know someone could come up with possible fixes?

    Mike:

    Great story and photos. But check with Beemer Boneyard for a used engine before you retire that thing.
