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.

Yup, it looks good. It's a little flimsy compared to the stock BMW cooler, but I'll add a mount to each top corner to stiffen the mounting and it'll be fine.




I got my intake mounting tabs made:




and battery tray made before the kids got here:




I drilled the tank for the new petcock bungs to get welded in and washed the debris out.




It didn't seem like I got much done with the guys here, but it helps to talk about the project to make sure I'm not missing any details. I was showing Jeff how the tank mounted and realized I hadn't tried the tank on since the air cannister went in, had to raise the rear of the tank by an inch or so...whew, easy fix.

Random pics, I don't know what I took the pictures for...I'm exhausted.




I'm in the home stretch now. I have a couple of welds to do on the frame in the morning, need to measure for a little extra clearance at the main mounts, some paint and final assembly starts tomorrow.




Thanks for the help today guys!! Thanks for the loan of the twinmax, Mike..hopefully I can make it idle tomorrow as I'm still waiting for the throttle cables.

Finally got a good nights sleep, didn't even wake up in a cold sweat screaming about Motion Pro.

Started this thread yesterday asking about the final drive bearing BMW can't seem to keep in stock...good grief, that was easy...keep a box of them in stock BMW and when people like me come along that don't care if the box says BMW on it, you can sell me one.

Thanks to the peeps in this thread for help:

Worked my tail off today, I'm beat...


Found the bearing I need at the local auto parts store.




Finished the intake and shot some paint...man, that felt great!!




Welded the bungs in the tank.




Put a spot of paint on it so it doesn't rust on this trip. I'm going to get my buddy Matt to do something cool with the airbrush on the tank later.




Made up some mounts for the new cooler.




Welded a bung into the intake for the crankcase breather.




It's done. Warmed it up in the sun before paint.




Beer and a c-gar, I deserve it.




Primer going on.






Starting the black...need another can of black to finish it up.




I'm really proud of the intake, love how it turned out!!!

Mike54 came over and hung out for a while. Here he is heading off into the afternoon on his Harley



Rob is a stylin' welder.



Looks like a 70's disco king.

No pix of JStory.

Rob's ideas of a shop hammer - the claw is more useful than a peen.





Gotta make some holes in this thing or it's just not a real conversion.



The superspine!





Makin' room for the slave. . .





Is Gillafunk around?

This must be some kinda hooka.






It was great to sit around and hear the stories about how you came up with all this stuff, Rob.

And the killer lunch Becky made.

Congrats on getting the bearing from the local parts house!

That intake looks great - you did a great job making that up from scratch.

Final coat of paint went on.




Instead of watching paint dry, I decided to see if the new trials bike runs. Replaced the fuel line and it fired right up...much easier than the 490.






The list is getting smaller, I'm down to stuff I can do quietly at night, so it's going to go quickly now.




Still waiting on my cables from Motion Pro. Motion Amateur sent me a customer service survey for the product I "recieved"...I'm going to unload on them once I get my muther truckin' throttle cables.
