I not too long ago bought a 1994 R100RT. In a former life I owned a 1985 R80RT. Dropped it and rebuilt it. BMW MOA thread right here….
After a major life occasion I offered it and have been on the fence since. So…..mainly I’m again within the sport.
The bike is in fine condition. I discovered it in Nashville TN and rode it residence to Sandpoint Idaho this fall. It was an incredible experience, 2500 miles, however I did have some issues present up on the experience residence that I must work on and repair.
I had issues with the Alternator/battery, and in addition I feel the weights are sticking within the bean can as generally it could not return to idle, until I loaded up the engine and even then it generally wouldn’t idle. I’m guessing it has sat quite a bit within the final 10 years. It has 49K miles on it
I’m within the strategy of doing a extremely thorough annual inspection, clean-up, repair up and so on.
The Pulse Air system was eliminated and it appears to be like prefer it was properly executed, besides this line was not plugged. I’ll do this. The emissions stuff was additionally eliminated and it too appears to be like prefer it was properly executed.
I’m guessing that is the electrics that have been reconnected after the solenoids have been eliminated.
In case you see something that’s not inventory please let me know. Aside from the twin plug coils.
One of many issues that may be very difficult with a brand new “Previous” bike is determining what’s inventory, what has been modified, and what’s lacking. Once more should you see non customary stuff please let me know.
I undoubtedly need to substitute this cover. I do not know why it was modified. Is that this an enchancment? Certain is unattractive to me.
So I’m considering of the EDL4Li alternator, EarthX battery, and presumably the EDL- IGNS system. That might give me the newest in Alternator, Ignition, and battery. I have already got the Enduralast Starter. The burden financial savings could be about 26.1 kilos, over the inventory stuff. Not large however all that weight is up fairly excessive so I’m considering it would assist slightly with dealing with. Sure, I’ll load the bike up for lengthy journeys so you could possibly say why trouble, however the actuality is MOST of my driving can be day journeys with very gentle hundreds, and underneath these circumstances it ought to assist. Sure…..I do know……. I’ll make investments greater than it’s value. Are you able to say “the other way up”? LOL
I’m considering different ideas. Is that this the very best improve? Or ought to I simply maintain it fairly inventory? That might assist with price, nevertheless it appeared the alternator was having bother maintaining even when it was working correctly. Once I turned on the heated grips and aux lights it went to shut to 12 volts so mainly offering little extra vitality for charging.
Thanks on your inputs. I’m certain I’ll have numerous questions as I am going down this street. I’ll attempt to submit what I be taught alongside the way in which to assist others.
