Re: Hot start problems

Condenser quality is really bad these days and it is not uncommon to change a condenser to find out the brand new one is faulty. Electronic condensers seems to be the way to go

Re: Cleaning the engine, transmission and final drive

Autosol works well on polished aluminum but not really on castings. You can give it a try but... And the Autosol will leave a black film that will need to be cleaned (even on polished surface). Once again, WD40 will remove that in a few seconds.

Re: Cleaning the engine, transmission and final drive

I am not a big fan of the WD40 but I must say that for cleaning an aluminum bloc without risking to damage paint, electrics etc... the WD40 with a brush (nylon or brass) is efficient.

Re: My R69S Conversion

Can't wait to see the pics... :D

If you need to resize pictures, there are several free SW that will make it for you, but the simplest solution is to email you the pics: those will be automatically resized or the option to reduce the size will be given to you.

Re: 6V Mini Air Pump

I am using this type of high tech model which works great, even if my battery is dead. :mrgreen:

The original one delivered with the bike works well too.

Re: My R90s (forgot to show pics)

Price? It is not for sale, just to introduce my bike. :mrgreen:
I did it for my R50/2 with Duna sidecar and forgot to show my R90s.
