Re: Custom R90S /5 for sale

Wild guess that this "Bike For Sale ad" from 8/4/2015, is no longer available :lol: ... I did the same thing recently on a long lost post someone revived and I thought was current.

Re: Kickstarter Rubber Stop

Thanks for the engagement on this folks. Yesterday morning I put grip tape under the stop and I changed out the nut and bolt for an all threaded allen head (was difficult to hold that 9mm inside the dog ears of the clamps on the stock nut and bolt). Got an excellent 185 mile loop in afterwards where...

Re: Kickstarter Rubber Stop

I was considering a small strip of some safety grip grit tape (happen to have some) in the same manner you are using the electrical tape. Appreciate hearing the potential for powder coat being a contributing factor.

Re: Slinger service cost

I'm with Kurt. I had new slingers, bearings and seals installed at Irv Seavers BMW in SoCal 6 months ago for $1100. I took the motor in partially disassembled like this (heads, cylinders, pistons removed). No clue what it would have cost if I rode the bike in and dropped it off, if that is the type ...

Re: Kickstarter Rubber Stop

Kinda sounds like neither of you have the issue of this rubber stop moving out of position routinely? I am concerned movement of the stop is going to damage the newly powder coated finish, as well as if the kickstarter misses it and contacts the frame. Perhaps I just need to put more umphh into tigh...

Re: Kickstarter Rubber Stop

Thanks James, yes, for my '55 R50. I didn't realize there were several sizes. The one I installed is part # 23514034257.

Kickstarter Rubber Stop

Is there something I am missing on keeping the kickstarter rubber stop in place? It seems like I align this accurately, tighten it up as snug as I dare, yet it doesn't take long until I need to realign it. Not an earth shaking problem I realize, but I figure I can't be the only one that this kinda b...

Re: 1971 R75/5 Partial Restoration

Per Snowbum https://bmwmotorcycletech.info/torquevalues.htm: Rear drive to driveshaft housing: 35 ft-lbs is what I use on these 4 nuts on the twin shock models, which use a paper gasket there, without any sealant applied. There are differing specifications for these nuts in the various literature.

Obviously things may have changed between years. Here is a pic of my '55 before I sent the frame out. Mine has 10 holes.
