Re: He's BACK.... Now with added R80RT

I bought the Zombie Slayer. A customised 1987 Honda XL600VH Transalp. I know this bike. Have ridden with it on a ride last year. Very nimble in the corners.

Re: A Woodworker’s Guide to Gearbox Rebuilding

The problem that I now see is that we don't bother to use what is readily available. I see many questions asked that are answered on my website, but few bother to look. It is hard to have a BMW motorcycle question that isn't answered on one of several websites. Google is your friend. Er, that's exa...

Re: I have a clunk in my rear wheel.

Pulled the swingarm and diff off the swing arm.

The uni joint is stuffed. Clunks and has notches.

Grabbed hold of the output shaft from the gearbox. It clunks and has notches.

Re: I have a clunk in my rear wheel.

My final drive clunked. It was the gearbox. Remove the 4 driveshaft/gearbox bolts and see if the wheel spins freely. I can feel the clunk at both the uni joint and in the diff. If I wiggle the wheel and hold the gear box up near the uni joint I can hardly feel the clunk. Which makes me think it is ...
