Re: Klaxon horn will ping, won't toot

Thanks, all, I did fiddle with the adjustment screw but perhaps not enough. Will go back at it!

@Kurt no, there's still no sound when connected directly to the battery. Does polarity matter? The terminals aren't labeled, that I saw.

Klaxon horn will ping, won't toot

Hoping someone can help me diagnose the Klaxon horn on my '65 R69S. I purchased the bike with a non-functional horn, previous owner didn't have state inspections and so never bothered with it. Here in NY I need it to pass, so started looking into it. Quickly realized the horn button on the headlight...

Re: Paint shop?

Thanks, I looked through the vendor listing earlier and a lot of what I found were broken links or artists now enjoying a well-deserved retirement. Will keep looking :)

Re: Fender paint advice solicited

Thanks very much. Will get out the sander and see whether there's anything left under there. At this point I'm definitely planning on going with a solo saddle, though I'd been toying with the idea of a rack-mounted rear fender pillion saddle. Not sure what the proper term for that is, or whether it ...

Re: Paint shop?

This is my first time running down this particular rabbit hole so I appreciate the context. My case is somewhat complicated by having a '65 R69S with pin strips. Would love to find someone who can do them right.

Fender paint advice solicited

Hey all, started the process of picking through my new-to-me '65 R69S, with the goal of replacing the breadloaf seat with a solo unit, and got a bit of a rude surprise after I pulled the original seat. BMW Rear Fender.jpg It unfortunately did a bit of a number on the original paint. It's down to the...
