Here's a couple of pics of my bike from last year. Had a little "mis-hap" with it in October, and it's being put back together. We'll be back on the road in no time!

Your best bet: Get a used head on e-bay.
As far as the transmission; BMW's are different to shift. You have to "pre-load" the shift. I would advise you to pull the drain plug and look at the gear oil. If it has fine particles, you're OK. If you have particles where you can feel between your fingers, you might be in some trouble. Some of the BMW's had/have a problem with their transmissions, a missing cir-clip which will cause the tranny to fail. Make sure all your fluids are up to snuff, everything is adjusted properly. I have found through a LOT of reading these bikes can be a bit finicky.
Good Luck!

Check these out....Make sure they fit; ask your mechanic. At least you'll have re-built the heads, and have many worry free miles.

thanks a bunch. you folks are like having a personal mechanic on hand. will advise my mechanic. there was also some talk about plugging the bottom two spark plugs. apparently my previous owner (im the second one) had the engine "blocked" for unleaded gas.

1978 R100

I am new to BMW and I have just gotten back into ridding after a 10 year hiatus. I just bought a 1978 R100 on Friday with 27k miles.

So far I am enjoying not only tinkering with my bike but reading about everyone else who has already discovered that BMWs are pretty kick ass

I would love to show off my bike... but I was just informed that I have to have a post count of 15 and this is my first post

Since my last post I have identified a few things with my bike.

First: it is a R100/7 built in Oct '77.
Second: The engine is out of an unidentified '84 R100
Third: Changing the oil and filter were not as easy as my car=)

I am having an electrical issue with my turn signals and horn. I replaced the fuses so I now the get the click sound when the turn signals are activated, but no blinking from the lights.

The horn still does not work after changing the fuses. I hear that I should be able to hook it up to the battery directly to see if the horn itself is broken. Has anyone tried this?

Thanks!
-Dave

On my bike, '88 RS, the ground/hot wire on the parking light in the fairing was mixed up. As a result, I had no taillight, and no parking light in the fairing. After taking it apart (fairing), to do other things...I realized the wires were not properly connected.
Hope that helps!

Yeah, I had the whole headlight assembly apart which houses most of the electrics... so my fear is something was reversed or I have a bad wire... looks like next step is taking off the tank=(

Looks like I won't be ridding for a few days

Not your Grandpaws Beemer!

1000cc inline-4 rated at around 200hp. in fact, the other key components seem to be very un-bmw-like too - chain drivetrain, inverted fork, dual-beam aluminum chassis. if u can’t beat ‘em join ‘em.

They announced that a year ago so pricing ought to be available on line or you may have to call your dealer, and ask about a special order on it. Probably not cheap and a special order. There ought to be some dealers that have one in stock.

My 74 R90/6

Got this a couple months ago for $1800 with 23.683 miles on the ticker and all ready put over 3k on it. I took these photos when I got it home and sence then I have removed the passenger floor bourds and replaced them with stock foot pegs, the big square driving light's and the leather fork covers. The side bags where off the bike when the Pic's where taken but I do have them.
