That post clearly illustrates the vast difference between a bodge and what is in this case clearly a very professional thought out solution to a problem.

Sidecar Paul made a similar thing for one of the crew a few months ago. I think it was made from aluminium.
It sure is a good fix and I notice that the one in the picture has already had a helicoil inserted so maybe the owner or mechanic was a bit heavy handed or used a yard/ton torque wrench.

Here's the post Rick.

http://www.k100-forum.com/t5241-solvedbroken-camshaft-bearing-cap-suggestions?highlight=camshaft+bearing

It's interesting that this repair pre-datesour forum's finalsolution but is identical. Exclamation

Is it a case of "Great minds think alike" or "Fools never differ" ?

Paul.

Paul.

What was not discussed and fixed on this forum?
I forgot about this post, but Jap and Paul had a great idea.
It starts to be difficult to find relevant information when you have to go to the 73,000 posts. The good thing is when you are looking for a specific problem, you come across other problems/solutions and learn a lot about the bike.

cheers Paul - "fools never differ..... " lol!


always the same

all probs have a solution
allexperience have been made before

the main thing is where & how to store/find it after months / years

Thats why we have issued the wiki structure incl mercyless classification to the BMW no system
