Re: Oil top ends right side BMW R60/5.

I have now taken off, again, the cylinder on the right side to inspect the oil gallery. Unfortunately, I find no signs that machining of the block has led to holes on the inside where it should not be. Everything looks normal. I notice that if I seal the oil hole on the rear bolt and the oil hole th...

Re: Oil top ends right side BMW R60/5.

Update: The cylinders were both replaced with brand new ones from www.motoworks.co.uk. Of course new stamps and piston rings as well. The cylinders were replaced when there were wear marks on the old right cylinder. During the disassembly then I also saw signs of poor lubrication of rocker arms on t...

Re: Oil top ends right side BMW R60/5.

Good tip and I will check. But shouldn't this show up on both sides then? Since front end bearing lubricates both right and left top end?

Re: Oil top ends right side BMW R60/5.

I asked a company to drill the cylinders, but they could not do the job due to the coating in the cylinder walls. I assumed it was because of nikasil. I first tried to crank the starter, but only got oil on the left side. A normal amount. Then I started the bike and let it run at 1000 rpm for probab...

Oil top ends right side BMW R60/5.

I have replaced the cylinders and pistons on my Bmw R60/5. This is because there were wear marks in the nicasil coating on the right side. I also saw during disassembly that there was little oil in the valve cover on the right side, almost nothing. Was almost certain that this was due to excessive u...

Hi!
Have anyone fitted a 14/57 ratio (solo civilian), into a 11/57 ratio (military with sidecar) housing? I wonder if it fits? Any experience?

R12 valve adjustment

I think the valve adjustment procedure on my R12 is difficult. I have adapted my tools to try enter the nuts better, but it will not be as I wish. Do some of you have any good tips, procedures or tricks to make this job easier?
