Larryboy, I'm really enjoying your build. Can't wait for the ride report(s)!

The question is:

(Larryboy time x Larryboy skill) + $ > 2($$$ + touratech catelog) ???

The only thing touratech has to offer me is those cool little GPS holders!!


Well, I thought I had been taking good care of the oil cooler, but in the mayhem it seems that some schrapnel found it's way to the back of it and I have a hole to solder. Crizzzaappp!!! Oh well, nother inch in the old journey...

Made the hole worse trying to solder it up. This was done to save me from myself, if I don't finish it off I'll waste a week trying to fix it.





at me...off to find another one.

$100 FUBAR, oh well...sure am glad I'm finally old enough to just get over it and move on.


Called Beemer Boneyard on the off chance they'd have one...nope, ebay? Nope. Summit Racing? Yup, in stock at the Sparks warehouse will get it here tomorrow.





Back to work...

The golden spike for the intake:




Have to lift the frame off to get the intake out now, still need to tap into it for the intake snorkle.

I have a desktop printer and a Homelite string trimmer which could benefit greatly from the same type of maintenance.

Excellent build, can't wait to see the final outcome. Cheers.

Maybe you could "accidently" drive over the trimmer with the pickup and go buy a new one?


Looks like my local BMW shop doesn't have the small final drive bearing, I might freak out now since in their infinite wisdom they have decided to keep the in stock items while they wait for the missing bearing to arrive. WTF is wrong with people? It's like they've decided to punish me for rebuilding the thing myself.

I think so too, bro!!


I wonder what 10 business days means since they're not open on Monday, is that really the three weeks that they are implying?

Poolside helped me out with some intel, the oil cooler for an 1150RT is the same as the GS and there is one on ebay from a local seller. I'll see what this one from Summit looks like first and go from there.

It looks exactly like the earls racing cooler I had used for a transmission cooler in my duramax. Mine was bigger but same thing. If so it's a nice piece of kit.
