Looking good!! Bet it felt good to have it running well.

Pity you have encountered issues elsewhere, but really to be expected on a bike that hasn't been running / maintained for a while. One-time things that once sorted you won't see again.

How long was the stainless brake line? And how much (if thats not too cheeky). I'll need to get one made up as well.

Next time rotate your photos. Got a crick in my neck looking at them sideways!

Cheers, Steve.

Sorry about the cricked neck syndrome Steve
The stainless line was an off the shelf no. they had there. I got a longer one as I will be putting risers on. I think the cost will be about $150 for the line & adapters.


(my kid wanted to put some smilies on sorry)

You don't have a "diff", thats a differential gearing found in the final drive of a two wheeled vehicle (car) that lets the two wheels drive at different speeds while going around corners.
Ahem

Take a gander at the middle of the page there my little friend

I rode Schmidt on the weekend. I was impressed. Liked it very much. Love the sound they make. Thanks Craig.

In response.....

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/differential

Simply because they misuse a term doesn't mean we have to carry on perpertrating the misuse.

Here's a better explanation of a true differential gear

Warewolf, I'm disappointed.

Sorry, right you are, but I owned a shaftie in the early '90s and everyone called the final drive a "diff". Not technically correct but that's what they call 'em [edit: possibly because BMW were the most common/prominent shaftie since forever]

Although it could be argued that when the swingarm (sorry, swinging-fork ) moves, there is a differential between the input & output through that final drive

Nice try, NO.





Thanks for the tips about the valve adjustment tho, I have a set of modified feeler gauges now!

Padmei, keep going with the rebuild, I'm finding it inspiring.

Let me guess - it's the professional paintjob that does it -isn't it

i'm waiting for a box of bits to come from pommyland - just lil things like crush rings, springs etc but will have a look at the swingarmthingy at the back over the weekend & try to take the fairingthingy off to paint it (properly ish)
i also want to grease the gearbox splines if it isn't too much of a hassle & file down the brake calliper.
Unless of course it's sunny & warmish then I'll spend the days outside with the family - Oh silly me it's the weekend that'll never happen

Had a bit of spare time after finishing work early - not in a good space so the best therapy I find is to take something apart with the highest probability that it'll never go back the way it was originally intended to.

The puzzle of the removable fairing has been taunting me for a couple of weeks now since my last attempt to free it from the bike.

BMWRSnut had successfully removed his & generously shared his experiences.

I felt now was the time for Padmei to conquer his demons & battle with capscrews & connectors. Like Arthur drawing Excalibur from the stone I, steel eyed & with controlled yet slightly elevated breathing, grasped my Kingcraft assorment of metric Allen keys & stood head to head with the Dragon.





We circled each other neither blinking nor daring to utter the singlest utterance (sound can be percieved as a weakness neither could afford to offer).






Tzu Pongs 'Art of War' silently recited in my mind. His slightly Welsh/Indian/Asian accent whispered in my ear "Get the bastard when he's not looking"
As stealthy as a leopard attacking a sloth as the sun caught his eye, I launched forcefully & deliberately with a long shaft 6mm Allen key behind his head. With a roar it reacted abruptly skinning my knuckles with the headlite mount.



As we twisted & turned grappling for domination it pulled off this amazing Matrix move - scared the crap out of me...




I pulled off an awesome suplex & brought it slowly under control.



His Armour was difficult to remove yet it finally came off exposing his vulnerable underparts





It was getting dirty. We were hot & steamy neither willing to give an inch. I'm not sure but I think somewhere along the line I sunk my teeth in. I'm not proud but unless you were there don't judge me...




Unperturbed I worked slowly yet purposefully untill it lay exposed for the world to see










With a deft final cut it was done.






I wasn't proud to slay this beast.

It was a worthy adversary however understandbly when faced against such ferocity of purpose and the finest instruments of death carefully picked from the Repco bargain bin, the battle could only have one ending.

It died so another could take it's place in this crazy reproductive cycle of life...







To be continued...

Looks like an ex Nordie white UFO headlight that's been spray bombed.

Looks better on Schmidtty than Gonzo.
