I've sold them, I've had no problems with them and have had no complaints from customers.
They only do the short (non-cooler) 1 piece filter.
Look to be very good quality.
They are TUV approved.

1979-1980 points-in-beancan grommet equivalent

Found a good equivalent for the (nla) 1979-1980 points-in-beancan grommet locally and on Amazon.com (#15 in below drawing):

Google MR200-0678 from Western Rubber (Amazon part # 2858 priced at $1.51 in July 2010). Spaenaur in Canada has it under part #RB=228.


#15 in this drawing:

/5 wiring block

I was at Radio Sack yesterday looking for instrument indicator bulbs and saw white nylon? terminal blocks like in my R60/5 headlight for about $2.60. Probably cheaper than OEM. THANKS for all the help this forum and its contributors have given me.

My throttle cable was about to break so I replaced it with bicycle gear cable. I filed the one end down (smaller part) to make it the same shape and cut off the head of the old cable (where it fits to the carberattor), drilled a very small hole, put the bicycle cable through and melted brass to keep it in place. Maybe theres an easier way? I dont know but it was cheap and it works!

Any information would be appreciated, my endless google searching has produced nothin....of course if anyone has one for sale I would be happy to hear about it too.
Luftmeister and Dunstall are gone. MAC makes a Right hand one, cheap POS but cheap. Unfortunately it's right hand, You take it off to change the oil. Mine wouldn't clear the thermostat on the RS. Epco will make one custom. So-So quality but stainless. They will make a left hand, which is ideal and last I talked with them they had done some for sidecar rigs. There is one other builder, Have to dig him up. Expensive, mild steel, special muffler, racing design.

Weight reduction on any is about what a muffler weighs. Power increase is pretty modest. For the money, up your compression or something.

That's for the filter only, the WIX I mentioned has the gasket, sealing ring and metal spacer included.

Battery for the Airhead

I've had a couple of batteries go bad before their time because I wasn't good about checking the electrolyte level. The last time around, I bought a Cycle Tron II, part number CYTX-20 CH-BS from Interstate Batteries. Purportedly a fit for the 82 BMW R100, it is a maintenance-free design. Strike 1, the terminals were reversed, so I had to fabricate a longer ground strap. Strike 2, the battery was considerably smaller than the stock BMW item, so I had to fabricate spacers to fit it properly in the battery tray. There's been a long pause, but now: Strike 3, it lasted less than 2 years, despite being hooked up to a battery tender almost daily. Even the neglected regular batteries lasted me 5 years!

Time for a new battery. A Cycle Tron maintenance-free will not be on the list.

We often hear about what works on our bikes but its just as important to know what doesn't. Thanks for the feedback on what has worked....not so much.
