Re: Silly tank question.

Mel,

When you say embossed, do you mean that there is a relief in the side of the tank so that the knee pad still remain flush to the surface?

Silly tank question.

Short of filling the gas tank on my 90/6, is there a way to tell if I have the standard or large capacity tank. Is there a diamensional figure I can look to or a part number under the tank.

thanks,

Re: How to separate rotor to re-wind

The copper wire is coated with an insulating varnish, so it cannot short to anything it touches when it is wound. You probably would be better off in having a generator repair shop rewind it as they would have the proper materials. I am not sure if a electronic supply house would have heavy enough w...

Re: A thread on another forum on handbar vibration

I have heard of some riders filling the bars with Kitty litter and capping the ends, inexpensive and light seems to help as long as there are no holes in the middle of the bars. This company makes a nice selection of bar ends.http://www.spieglerusa.com/controls/handlebar-ends.html

Re: /6 Side covers

Ken, Not sure what the major differences were, the addition of side reflectors for US models made be part of the changes. I make it a practice to check between the models when I find on part on fleabay, just to make sure it isn't one of the differences. Here is a link to a site the has production fi...

Re: /6 Side covers

Ken,

When the bike was sold may be material, but when I run the serial it comes up as an ECE model not US. Us models started at 49 as 1st two digits, this one is 40. I checked both fiches that came up for a standard US series and by vin number, no difference as far as side covers.

Re: /6 Side covers

Thanks Tim, I didn't think about different seats, but the microfiche indicated there was a "official"" model for both sides. The reason this came up is a left side cover came up painted "Police Colors" green. I thought it would be an interesting color for my BMW, but I wanted to make sure it would f...

Morning guys, I am in the process of finding some of the missing or broken items for my 90/6 made on 9/73, so it is a Euro model. I have been checking out e-bay for side covers and the question of the differences between civilian model and official model motorcycles came up. I went to MAXBMW site, c...
