I posted a new page on this project about removing the flywheel, replacing the rear main seal, oil pump cover and cover o-ring and installing the flywheel. This also covers a repair to a leak I found in one of the crankshaft flywheel bolt holes.

The work I did was guided by a lot of advice and web content shared by others who have gone before me. I’d like to acknowledge folks who regularly participate on the BMW Airhead forum on Micapeak. In particular, Tom Cutter who runs Rubber Chicken Racing Garage and Bob (Snowbum) Fleischer who has a great technical library on all things BMW motorcycles, answered questions I posted on the Micapeak forum and in personal Email and phone conversations. I also used web materials posted on Duane Ausherman’s site.

Any errors in procedure are entirely my own and in no way reflect on the knowledge of the people above.

Here are a couple pictures from the write-up.
