Re: Steel Rims

Thanks Chad, that was exactly what I was looking for. Had a conversation with Richard Winter (Bural) the other day, he's got a line on "Harley" wheels from Drag Specialties. Kinda spendy though, about $180 apiece.

Re: Tight Fork Separator

It would help, considerably, if we knew what bike you're referring to.

For future reference, post all of that information, and your location, in your signature line.

What is a 'fork separator'?

Re: New to wrenchin' on this thing!

kicking on 1st try on a 06????????? Mine does, since I plugged in a C5 system. Adjust valves (follow Bill Glasser's web site Myural.com) Check static timing (same advice) Balance your carbs I'd add, "clean the air filter and re-oil it", to the list (just to complete an overall maintenance session).

Re: Not Enough or Too Much Clearance.

I'm surprised how infrequently I've had to adjust valve clearance on my '06 engine. My '73 R75/5 engine's valves actually require more attention.

Report (BMWMOA member) of 1st degree burns on the palms as a result of sensed temperature (by the rider's hands) under very cold ...

Re: k37 or pz28 carbs for SV Dnepr K750?

Speaking of China.. .. consider adding your locale to your signature line Macabry; makes for a good reference when others offer help, parts location, etc. i.e. I'd feel kind of silly suggesting that you to pick up a widget at PepBoys if your were in the UK.
