Re: Can you tell what kind of mufflers

Quite by chance I took my mufflers to Barry Bligh at Overlander for a minor repair on mounting lug and a polish.
Barry proudly told me there would be no charge involved as he had made the mufflers 35 years ago and he was happy to do a warranty job!!

Re: Can you tell what kind of mufflers

I thought Overland as well. Perhaps they were exported.

Re: Motorrad Elektrik Ignition

I thought you’d be happy with it. I put one on my Seibenrock kitted 72 R/75 a few years back and it is perfect. No twin plugging required. No pinging, detonation whatever you wish to call it even on 91 oct fuel here in Oz. I tried a couple of other electronic ignition units prior and they were flake...

Re: Motorrad Elektrik Ignition

I’ve been running one of these units on my R75/5 for more than 3 years.
Totally reliable upgrade, you’ll be very happy with it.

Re: New Camshaft 1977 R100 swap?

Hi Sam I don't know much about cams, but if you are thinking of electronic ignition, the Alpha Classic is a great improvement over the original system. No more fiddling with points and worrying about mechanical advance mechanism. The green Dyna Coil is worth considering as well. I have no affiliatio...

Re: New Ikons at a Too-Good Price?

I paid $671.5 delivered from Albury to Hamilton (Aus)inc GST for 7610 shocks with adjustable damping and preload without covers.
Superb shocks, transformed handling of 71 R75/5.

Re: Battery for R75/5

Wide black tape hides ugly yellow.
And yes there is a cranking comparison on web somewhere, I haven't seen it but a friend of mine has.
They are marginally heavier than most others.

Re: Battery for R75/5

I find Motobatt better than anything else I have used. Use them for my SWB R75/5 as well as my difficult to crank Ducatis. They hold their charge for months.

Re: Oil leaking from behind timing cover on /5

I replaced gasket on mine and leak stopped. Not sure why they decide to leak after years of being sealed. I think I used some sealer on new gasket.

Re: Engine upgrades 77 r100/7

Hi Bobby, I am across the border from you in Victoria Aust. I was facing similar issues to you with my 1971 R75/5. It had broken a ring. Rather than rebore and new pistons I elected to purchase the Seibenrock 1000cc kit. I also had the heads completely reconditioned locally by a very well respected ...
