Hi all,

I'm a retired mech + elec eng, run 4 BMs, all from basket cases, make my own parts ( within reason ), make tools when needed for certain jobs. I've probably done > 300 000 kms on 2 wheels in my lifetime and still make mistakes.

1978 R100S, 250 000 kms ; 1983 K100RS, 300 000 kms ; a 1981 R100"ZSGS" ( Zwei Stoßdämpfer Gelände Straße ), a "clone" with a Werner Reinschlüssel 40L tank, R65 gussetted frame using HPN as a guideline, RS engine, lots of other stuff, done 200 000 kms, been to Kilimanjaro ( not me, long ago owner ) ; a 1979 R100S Exclusive Sport with 140 000 kms, gussetted frame similar to above, to copy Reg Pridmore bikes. Handles very differently to 1978 but still not as good as K.

Any inspection by BM diehards generally have them shaking their heads in disgust. I believe in modifying anything internal to a bike ( if it's for the better ) but try to keep the external appearance original. Example : that horrible starter relay under the tank on 90Ss, I'd put in a modern one.

Most things I make, I make a drawing of ( in AutoCAD ) for future reference.

I'm attaching my description of my K gearbox drain modification because this makes that really messy job MUCH easier, but it doesn't make much sense without the pics, so how do I attach pics ?

Go to the Forum functionality section, and try some of the methods within. The graphics of the importing software have change slightly but the methods still work. There are two graphic import icons in the menu above this box. The leftmost one works with this system's image server. The one next to is used to import images you already have stored on an image host.

I just use a piece of tinfoil to keep the trans gear oil from going down the center stand.

From CAD to tinfoil—the classic K rides descending arc of maintenance technology. Giddyup! Smile

Interesting addition to your RS screen ; why ? did somebody break that flimsy deflector ?

So how do I post pics ? Or is "NO PICTURES" absolutely gospel ? A friend on the K100 forum has posted. I'd shrink them down to <25Kb.
