"In other news, distraction boy gets distracted.."
« on: September 19, 2021, 07:51:37 PM »
So I got this three days ago,


so of course two days ago I did this:



No big surprise to people who know me, but some folks are going a little nuts. It's actually quite rational. It's a 1990 BMW R100GS with the Paris-Dakar stuff added. A nice bike, I paid a bit too much for it, but I've wanted one for decades. These airheads have a few well-known problems, specifically an output shaft issue: the factory decided they no longer needed a circlip to keep the shaft tight against the output bearing. They were wrong and it eventually hoses the transmission. The driveshaft also tends to come apart after 20K to 100K miles. So I'm fixing those issues and updating some things to give me a good 50K miles of riding before anything major pukes.

Actually, that's moving along briskly. I built the battery today and didn't even burn my shop down.
