You all thought I was dead.
Nope.
Had a runaway TDI and have been wrenching 4-wheels for awhile.

Re: Swapping handlebars

Timkil, go to a VW supply shop with your banjo bolt. Say, "help".
They will have what you need.

Re: r100rt shock mount

uh-huh.
SIGNIFICANT something, anyhow.
Maybe those other parts got changed-out and PO thought this wouldn't be noticable...until the check cleared?

"Last point" I agree, Sprints.
Yes, I know Mikuni makes a bunch of different sizes but as stated by sprints, the tuning possibilities are close to infinite, and I'd rather ride.

Re: r100rt shock mount

I'd be worried about MORE than the shock mount if it hit that hard.
Swing-arm, driveshaft comes to mind first.

I think the Dells would be oversize for the R60...about the same way Bing 40s are a bit oversize for the R100s for casual riding.
Why don't we have Bing 36s?

Re: Rockers the same?

A shop that sells stuff for VW's sought to be able to fix you up with a brake line,
I did that to the R65 when I changed the handlebars...needed a longer one and VW parts were the ticket.

Re: odd tank fitting issue.

I vote for differences in the both the frames AND the tanks, especially based on the time of manufacture.
If metal-on-metal troubles you, put a little pad of old innertube where the metal touches. OR leather.
Leather would be FANCY!

Re: r100rt 1981 bing carb jet

I'm now using Valvoline VR-1 racing oil, 20W-50. (NOT synthetic, tho)
It's loaded with those nasty things they don't put in "auto-grade" oil any more; lotsa ZINC, etc for hot running engines with pushrods.
