is this a good deal

Looks like the coil is on backwards... I've heard of Mark Huggett selling new magnetos, or maybe that was just the coil?? Anyway, I checked his website and he shows $0.00 which probably means he's out of stock. Blue Moon Cycle in Georgia shows a repro coil for $169, a rotor for $160, and an ignition...

r 65 user manual

"The manual"...which one are you referring to? There's the owner's manual and there's a workshop/repair manual. I doubt you're going to find either on the web. I have several repair manuals for my /7, some of which I bought at the dealer or at other motorcycle shops. The latest one I bought was by H...

First of many posts and questions to come I'm sure :)

Rear running light - 8 out of 10 times the problem is a poor ground; but a new bulb is also a good thing to check. High beam switch - might be a relay; I've heard of this kind of problem before. Trip odometer - probably the numbered wheels inside the speedo aren't meshing anymore. Often times openin...

Questions regarding R69S steering damper

I forgot this link was around. Vech discusses how to convert to the friction type:

R75/6 rear wheel bearings......

Another possibility for NM Airhead support. This from Kent Christensen on the Airheads list - join the NM club at http://www.nmbmwmc.org/. Someone else posted this: "In Santa Fe, check out the motor scooter dealer. I cannot remember the name, but he is on the main drag, and also sells Royal Enfield ...

Questions regarding R69S steering damper

I've heard that the hydraulic dampers were hard to maintain and there's a friction damper that came out to replace it or as an option?? I thought Vech at Benchmark Works sold one but I can't find anything on his site. Same with Blue Moon in Georgia. You may have to try a German company, Motorrad Ste...

R75/6 rear wheel bearings......

Being in the suburbs of ABQ, I would think you could find a gaggle of Airheads (what's a group of Airheads callled??) closer to home. I primarily joined VBMWMO because of my /2. There are other fora that you could join and find out if there are people close to you...airheads.org, boxerworks.com, etc...

R75/6 rear wheel bearings......

It's hard to tell on the fiche but I'm sure there are two seals, one on each side...the only question is if they're the same part. It seems to me that the outside seal (driver's left) is 36 31 1 230 334. The inner seal (driver's right) is 36 31 1 231 701. Not sure if they felt seals these days. They...

R65 Rear Wheel Bearings

You should be fine using the tool kit wrench and giving a good pull...if you feel uncertain about it, ride it and then recheck...I'm sure you'll find that the nut will stay put. I doubt you've squeezed all the grease out. Did you guys do the preload measurement before the bearings were installed? Th...

R65 Rear Wheel Bearings

If I were changing bearings, I'd want to replace the races as well. I'm under the impression the bearings and races are a matched set. Later bikes have sealed bearings (I could be wrong) but I don't think they can be adapted for your bike. When properly cared for, these bearings will be still good w...
