Re: Mono Final Drive bearings

The letters probably have to do with special characteristics of the bearing, like contact angle, slingers, seals and so on. Looked in my bearing book, it just had basic information, Google, however, turned up more information. Angular contact ball bearings 3305-DA-TVP main dimensions to DIN 628-3, d...

Re: What are your boots?

I seem to be agreeing more and more with ZM lately. Maybe because I am getting older, wait a second, I am older in my 70's. :o I also have been buying better more protective gear in the last year. Bought a Vanson leather Sport jacket, even went for a pair of leather bottoms, which may be a little to...

Re: A buddy asked me....

Blundstones? Romeo's? Are you guys serious? If they don't protect the ankle as much as possible, they should at least not come off easily. IMO, of course. I actually wear BMW Motorrad boots when I ride my R1100RS as I know I will be going fast. I guess I gear up or not depending on the circumstance...

Re: A buddy asked me....

I know I am probably wrong, and even possibly stooopid, but for me - Blundstones and a leather jacket or my Belstaff Trialmaster. I agree with Dougie, no Hi Viz for me. Leather or a Belstaff. Had to figure out what a Blundstones was, after Google, they are the same as what we yanks call a Romeo sty...

Re: New to me 1100RS

Yeah, I already upgraded the fuel injection nozzles, the cam chain tensioner and did the AFx unit too, running it at 7 pulses, still getting around 45MPG. I just upgraded the HES unit to the new sytle with the good insulation so I am about set for anything that may go wrong (knock on wood). As for c...

Re: If there were no Airheads

I bought an 1100RS oilhead which I really like. I do lust over the older Guzzis.

Re: HO! LY! SHIT!!!

As one that checks my local Craig's list for BMWs on a daily basis, the K bikes are the best deals out there. They don't seem to hold their prices as well as the boxer models. I see relatively low mileage 1200cc bikes go for under 3K.

Re: '76 RS pushrod rattle

Sounds like you have a few things to check. When I googled this noise issue I found a thread on the MOA site that was discussing the same noise, different side. The consensus there it had to be rockers/bearings,lifters or bend push rods. In the past I have heard of some issues with the pushrods, som...

Re: '76 RS pushrod rattle

When you had the rocker arm assembly off did you check to see if all the needle bearings were there and in good order?

Re: '76 RS pushrod rattle

Nice having you on board. A couple of things come to mind, when you assembled the rockers did you adjust the end play on the shafts? Have you pulled the mufflers and shook them, could it be a baffle that has come loose?
