Nice R100R's. Partial to black on a Beemer but the white looks great and I have seen other white ones. Those City cases look nice. Been looking for a set or maybe some 30 liter Kauser bags. To bad about the LOL running into you but it sounds like your okay and you found a even better replacement.

I brought home this '84 R80RT this week, and am going through all of the cleaning, adjusting, fluid changes, carb synchronization, valve lash adjustment, end-to-end nuts and bolts check, detailing, etc.

Spark plugs were both loose (good threads, just not tightened), all four exhaust crossover pipe clamps are broken, replaced a couple of bulbs, removed float bowls and inspected floats, needles, bowl contents, replaced fuel lines (needs fuel filters), etc.

That's a pretty clean 84 RT. Nice color. Hell of a shop you got there.

Man, that's a heck of a bike lift!

But I'd sure as heck find some way to clamp that front wheel in place before I ended up with a lap full of motorcycle first time I tried to break loose an exhaust nut or remove a center stand spring. Then I'd figure out how to block up those forks so a hydraulic problem didn't result in a broken leg or mashed foot.

Does this make you feel safer, Scot?



I was just cleaning, polishing, and adjusting valves in the previous pic, so no danger of pulling a bike off on top of me.

And as to hydraulic failures, I can tell you from many years of hydraulic technician work, they are seldom "quick" or rapid in the loss of pressure or drop speed. Even a blown hose, which is pretty rare, will generally result in a lowering of a cylinder, rather than a "drop".

I have owned this forklift for better than seven years, and even at its worst, it might leak down overnight, leaving the tilt angled down, but no major failure.
I always park it at floor level overnight, anyway.
