Recently, on this forum. I saw a picture of a R62 clutch actuator plunger with a fitted grease fitting. Tonight I can't find it. Can anyone send a copy to oldbmws@yahoo.com?
Thanks
Ted

R62 Clutch actuator

Was it this?

This was the transmission that came with my R62 drivetrain. I have since sold it to a guy in Italy who has built a bike out of it and lots of repop stuff.

R62 Clutch actuator

Dear Darryl,

Thank you for the picture.
That's going to be a difficult part to make. Does anyone know of a source? Neither Dreher nor Laszek have anything like it.

Sincerely

Ted

R62

Hi,
I saw your request for a greesable clutch throw out for a R62 transmission. Are you looking to modify the case you have or to replace a missing part? I wanted to post to this request for information. Having a greese fitting here is completely unnecessary. The bearing is so easy to access and so rarely needs to be regreesed. If you are servicing this bearing, simply release the tension of the clutch cable by removing the cable end from the mount (thereby not requiring any soldering), drop down the arm, pull out the slotted cap and apply greese to it. Reinstall and you are done. I have never had one fail with this method of service.
Peter

R62 Clutch actuator

Dear Peter,

Thank you for responding to my inquiry. My interest in the grease fitting is a result of my seeing several pictures of this series bikes that had grease fittings fitted to the thrust bearing. The picture above this reply shows grease fittings installed on the gear box case and the thrust bearing.

Incidently, the parts manual does not show the thrust bearing with out a grease fitting.

Sincerely

Ted
