Re: Buying 100RT with sidecar?

So the second picture looks like a /2 with a later motor and no sidecar.
Looks like they are selling 2 different bikes.

Re: Buying 100RT with sidecar?

I must be confused but from the picture, it looks something like an 1983 R100RT. From the tank, the seat, and what looks like the cowl behind the seat. Not counting the RT fairing. Guess you might be able to adapt them to a /2 frame.

Re: Handelbars.

Wobbly -
I see you're still using the forward mounting holes on the upper clamp.
If you switch to an RT gauge mounting bracket, you can move your bars back to the rear mounting holes.
Shorter reach without raising the bars, and giving more room within the fairing.

Re: Stinky boot

are you sure it's weeping from the gasket? or is it from the overflow? Maybe the float is heavy and sinking, and the fuel level is too high. While standing still, the fuel isn't sloshing in the bowl, and if the level is just below the overflow, you won't see a leak. But while you're riding, a small ...

Re: Hello new to airheads.

I'm assuming the bike still has points inside the "bean can" under the front cover.
The cover has vent holes on the bottom. You may have gotten water inside.
If you want to remove the cover, make sure you disconnect the battery, as it's easy for the cover to touch the diode board and destroy it.

Re: Handelbars.

Too low and too far forward can be addressed but too narrow and fitting within the fairing is difficult. You may need to remove the fairing or get a different bike (an S or a naked bike).

Re: Handelbars.

I have K75S bars on my 77RS. Also used an RT gauge mount bracket which allows you to use the rear mounting holes in the upper fork mount.

Re: Trans Output Flange

update 2 Just got a call from Bob's. They disassembled again and took the bearing of the shaft. Found the washer was damaged causing 1st gear to hang up and not spin freely on the shaft. Recommended replacing the bearing, the washer and another bearing in the trans, then reshimming. I agreed. So it ...
