Haven`t seen any like it for ages.......but wouldn`t be surprised if it still is to be found at some smaller shops in the middle of nowhere collecting dust on a shelf in the backroom.

Search around among those who deal with vintage bikes, as this stuff was used
before the o-ring chains was entering the market.

I think if I were doing it again I would use some thick neoprene rubber sheeting say 1/8" or about 3 to 4 mm thick the exact shape is not that critical. The benefit of using rubber is one could flex it out the way for applying regular judicious squirts of Rocol Moly or equivalent chain aerosol spray to each side of the clutch arm pivot bearings. The extension below the number plate ideally needs to be the real deal because that is on show all the time.

Picked up a little poster board to make a template as its a little tighter in there than I remember and I imagine it's going to take a bit of fun with the heat gun to get decent coverage while clearing everything...

first: thanks OG for a great thread.

pardon my naivete, what's the difference between the k75 (shawa?) forks and the k100 forks?

and, if you could: what are the rubber, plastic, and vinyl revitalizers you use for all those parts?

thanks!

Hey Adam,

The two I like using the most are these: My personal favorite is the 303 Aerospace, but it is a bit more spendy than others.

do you use both for all of the above materials or is one for plastic and the other for rubber or something?

You can use the 303 on just about anything. I use the gear aid for rubber bits that need some freshening up, but won't be exposed to the elements to much as it's cheaper than 303, but won't last nearly as long.

Here is a link from the board that gives a good breakdown on the forks:

http://www.k100-forum.com/t3005-bmw-forks-k-r-type-chapter-31?highlight=front+forks

In many ways the early Fichtel & Sachs is a better engineered more durable fork than the Japanese Showa, but does not have the integrated fork brace with the Mk. II fender that I very much wanted. You can try to find an old Telefix fork brace or an Italian company, I forget the name, also makes a good copy that is still sold new. It's also far easier to get spring kits and cartridge emulators for the much newer Showa. You could have a top flight suspension shop do that kind of horking on a F & S fork, but it will cost you more.

good luck og ....cocktail huh ?.....

found that by adding about 100 ml of 10 weight to the balence of 7.5 weight (so total for me was 360 ml ) cured my susspension ails verry nicely ....not so much reaction on the front from small road undulations (read pot holes etc) ...but kept it reasonably tight in the big sweepers and short change direction twistys

Finally got to sneak out to the garage for a bit today and got the mudflap done. I'll report back on how it holds up to the heat and debris, but it is dirt simple to do and less than a fiver all in so no worries.

Final template:



After a little heat gun work:



A good fit:

Got the forks filled & I think it's finally time to install the front
end this week...got turned on to the Redline by a buddy who won't use anything else in his racing mountain bikes, and there is a BIG reduction in stiction and the overall smoothness of the forks is just outstanding. Highly recommended!

Thanks guys. Ghost the "like water" is 1.5w and is used in high end applications with incredibly tight tolerances where they want to keep friction down to the bare minimum, i.e. Nascar, F1, and other racing series. I used the 1.5w with the 30w mixed 1:1 to give me a 15.8w.

For the veterans on this board, we've been hanging out tooooo much, I think. It's like we now think alike.

The other time, Charlie99 and I were searching on the same day in our respective junk yards for injectors.

Now, OG and I are painting our respective fenders the same colour on the same day. Just too weird if you ask me. I set up a booth in the garage and have started repainting the broken fender on the damaged M-G I recently bought.

What are you talking about?

Thursday night I was washing the bike and counting the stone chips + looking at the small crack (done when a car backed up) on the front fender.
I was wondering if I should have it repainted.
