Hi All,
just getting a old /5 back on the road after sitting for years and years.

The headlight (actual light not bucket) and chrome ring needs replacing.

Any info on tracking down these items?

Thanks,
K

I think it's still available as a spare part. Hucky's has them. The stock head light is a bit weak. Your upgrade options are getting the OEM H4 upgrade (expensive), finding a used R65 headlight, or getting a cheap H4. I have a barely used Zitzen H4 and a rashed ring, if you wanna go real cheap...

starter

OK, without having to scan this entire thread.

I need a starter, or starter parts for my '84 R100RS, ????? Who, where, how much?

Same questions for diode board.

I'll sit and wait for wisdom.................

On my 83R65 I replaced the reflector, lens, and bulb, with an off the shelf Sylvania round automotive headlamp from an Autozone. It was just a couple of bucks and was the right diameter so I thought it was worth a try. Got it home and to my amazement not only was it the right size, but the harness plugged right into the back without any modification! There were a couple of alignment tabs molded into the glass under the rim of the lens that had to be carefully ground off. After that, it was a direct replacement.

Don't know if this helps you at all.

I haven't yet found anything other than those two numbers. It stumped napa, it stumped another parts source I use. I have been thinking about using the rubber surround and cutting out the middle, but that rubber seems to get rather hard over time, the new ones always feel more like they seal up.

Ironically Real Oem lists the casting that goes over the filter for less money than the filter.

As much as I hate to plug out of country suppliers, Motobins in the U.K.
has a "Reisen" brand airfilter for $13.50 or so.
Group buy?
Save on some shipping?

Caltric on ebay has new Valeo starters for $102.00

I bought one a couple of months back when they were $90- .

They are not the branded Valeo starters which are now made in Poland or somewhere and are available elsewhere for around $190, but the quality looks OK and so far it has has worked perfectly.

Be VERY careful how you word this....
The starters you speak of are Asian Knock-offs of a Valeo starter.
Valeo is a brand name (good or bad), his $100.00 starters are copies, and although tempting at that price I would rather pay the $170.00 from John at EuroMotoelectrics, because he will stand behind what he sells.
It's all moot anyhow, because I'm a dinosaur and usually run Bosch starters.
Just saying........
Robert

I stand corrected- I should have said unbranded copies of the Valeo.
However, given the state of global manufacturing these days they may well be made in the same plant that makes the Valeos, and the Bosch!

And I agree with you on Euromotoelectrics, good man to deal with.

However , if you decide to order a starter relay from him for a 86 G/S MAKE CERTAIN YOU GIVE HIM THE PART NUMBER AND PIN CONFIGERATION ON THE OLD ONE- the one he sends has the wrong pin layout.
"
As an aside the old relay was a source of a baffling "charging fault" - it wasnt switching completly off every time and it somehow would drain the battery etc.

Don't know if this helps you at all.
Standard circular headlights are 7" or 5-3/4" diameter.

I don't know what the /5 models use.

The standard Bosch headlight on the R65 twin shock models (1978 to 1984) is an unusual size, about 6-1/4" diameter.

Cibie used to do a good quality halogen replacement in this size in the early 1980s; I bought one in 1981 to fit a 1978 Honda CB250T.

It turns out Honda have continued using this odd size headlight for later bikes based on the CB250T/CB400T motor, such as the CB250N/CB400N and CM250.

The CB250NB (about 1983) onwards had halogen headlights, whereas the NA and the T had abysmal prefocussed globes in a miserable headlight.

If you can't find a headlight for an R65, try looking at Honda 250 parallel twins.

Also, most headlights are specific to one side of the road, with a low beam which is higher on the kerb side to illuminate roadside signs. Many motorcycle headlights are symmetrical however, since this is the only feature of a bike which is specific to left or right side of the road driving. The assymetry or symmetry is clearly visible when inspecting the front of the lens.
