WTB: '78 R80/7 owners manual

As ad says, just need/want an owners manual for my bike.

Can also trade a used "Clymer 500-900cc 1955-1975" for owners manual. Well used, but all pages intact. I finally bought the correct Clymer for my bike.

/5 Electric parts

Hello, all:

I have the following /5 parts which won't work on my present bikes, and I won't have any use for:

2 Bosch 6V coils
Rear turn signal bracket, straight
Bosch diode board 01 197 002 001 (15A)
/5 Headlight bulb

I also have several (4) round red side reflectors in decent used shape, with rubber backing pads also in good shape.

Also: /5 (and possibly /6) clutch release lever with boot.

Please IM me with any offer.

Thanks.

Garth

Replacement of "SHED" syste--fool's errand.

It's not just a question of being green. I sometimes smell gas fumes from the open vent on the bottom of the tank, especially after refueling.

Evap emissions equipment doesn't affect performance in the slightest, save an extra pound of weight.

Leads would be appreciated.
After looking into it some more, I decided that it was basically impossible, and a fool's task, to try to replace all the valves, electric fuel tap, vacuum hoses, connectors, wiring harness, etc. which had been removed.

Instead, I simply replaced the fuel lines with new ones routed as in the earlier ('84 to '92) models. I also found on ebay a seller who was parting out a 1983 R65. The starter cover for $19.99 is the same part number and fit perfectly as the "SHED" version on my bike, but without all the "swiss cheese" holes (11 in all!).

I did find, on removing the air cleaner, that one of the vacuum hoses had been plugged with a metal screw into a very short piece of tubing. If that had ever vibrated loose, it could have been sucked into the engine with potentially very dire consequences. I just took a soldering gun with a flat tip and melted the plastic vacuum fitting and sealed it that way. A lot safer, I believe.

Left & right side. 50$ you pay actual shipping should be under 15$ for shipping via snail mail.

Let me know

Thanks

I have four of these they came w my s fairing and bike when I bought it last year. 75 R90/6
They look to be in new condition or never used. I have 4 of them. 25$ each shipped.

I've seen them vary on eBay frm 20-75$.

I think my price is fair. If you have questions. Please shoot me a PM.

Thanks

I have seen trouble just by looking at rubber lines when they bulge but I have never seen a rubber line show any signs of blocking flow like I have seen them do many times now.

Stainless steel/teflon lines don't collapse. They cave in from a very sharp bend or from being crushed but . . . . I would take a my 25 year old stainless line over a brand new rubber one any time. It still out performs a brand new rubber line just like it did the day I installed it and it last many times longer to boot. Win/win IMO.

I can't believe we're agreeing on something.

I have a 76 r90/6 exhaust crossover tube. Free if you'll pick up the shipping to whoever needs it. It's not perfect but perfectly servicable and should shine right up. PM me for pictures if you want.
