Re: Drive shaft boot leak

For mystery leaks sometimes it helps to get the area clean clean clean and then dust that area with baby powder or cornstarch. Oil will leave a visible trail.

Tri-Flow is a great lubricant if you wanted to give it a try.

I have always used a few drops of dish soap and water.

When you put on the NGK caps, do you replace the leads as well?
As they say - "If you're already in there".

Re: Getting a grip

MaxBMW has stock grips listed for '79 - '84 R100RS.
