Other info …

My bike, a 1983 R80ST, was new in March of 1984. Things changes a bit since then. My impression is that the ST is smoother the entire RPM range, but the RA is new and things not settled just yet. I’m the RA will smooth out significantly it is broken in. The only thing really bugs me is that the are smaller.

My laptop fit perfectly in the bag on the ST, but it needs to be “manipulated” to fit on the RA (a smaller bag has now remedied this). The right bag *does* hold my helmet, is a plus. On the power side, a improvement (surprise, surprise, versus 80HP). The brakes are phenomenal as well.

It handles very nicely. I wait until the break in is done (600 miles) so I can get the above 4,000. The ST was quiet, one is even more so, which is for me to believe.

I also purchased a heated jacket liner. real nice Plugs in to the accessory socket and keeps me warm. I highly recommend

In November of 2000, I purchased heated gloves. Very

Tweaking log

1, 2000 – 600 mile servicing: presented to dealer

The bike stalls when approaching a I am decelerating in gear and I pull in the and the engine stumbles and stalls. The has diminished as time has progressed, it happened this past

The bike surges while to maintain a constant speed 2500 – 4000 RPM, in lower gears. Internet is Throttle body synchronization.

I noticed a pretty significant in the footpegs at 4,500 RPM’s

reduction in surging Buzziness is reduced

Stalling has all but gone

has been building – partial to see if surging is reduced. Rode for 1 no difference

Reconnected canister, a quick ride, no apparent in surging. Synchronized TB, took a ride. Noticeable improvement in

Autolite plugs. Hard to if any difference, but minimal surging.

I ran Bosch 4417 plugs, Autolite plugs. Bosch’s surged more (Autolites very little surging). I I’d run this experiment to see what the are.

Up to about 2,800 Surging is almost non-existent. I speed bleeders – what a product!

It took me less time to 2 speed bleeders and bleed brakes than it used to me to do the one disk brake on my ‘ST. annual servicing on 11/27. bike keeps getting

Up to about 4,400 miles. The bike failed PA state – the rear brake pads down to nothing. I had the dealer them to diagnose if there was a problem. He says no.

I also that the front tire was on the left side. After a local BMW list, it is a common Rear brakes and tires 18 months … ouch. The tire is OK for a yet.

Now at just over 6K. I am on taking the bike in for a 6K servicing. I’m for the weather to be a bit more reliable. just bought a digital I though I’d snap a shot of my tire.

Note the wear The left side (as you sit on the bike) has less tread (read needs to be replaced ASAP). I circled the area. My theory on wear pattern is that I I countersteer more readily left than right.

Just my theory.

got back from the 6K servicing that they did not remove my and replace them with as I have heard other do). Dealer seem to the tire wear is due to the was roads are in the US. Since I drive mostly back roads, this sense. Surging is now more

I resync’d the TB’s and it got somewhat The technique that seems to the best for me is to velcro the TwinMax to the gas and ride the bike. I pull and make minor adjustments I get it the way I want it.

I haven’t had time to do so I pulled the CCP (see IBMWR page). The bike runs but I have not had a chance to assess the to the gas mileage. Since a “dealer” is to pull the CCP, install a and use an exhaust gas analyzer, I figure I’m OK.

Many on the IBMWR list “pulled the plug” with exhaust and cat converter and not suffered any

May 30, 2002

No CCP does not appear to be a idea. It definately ran smoother, but was still some surging. The gas was

32 MPG. I normally get in the 36-38 Oh well ….

Fall, 2002

I the Autolites (they had 7K on them). looked great. I tried a with little affect. I the valve clearances and the right intake was at 0.006″ (per and the left side intake was at

IBMWR tech notes that 0.012 intake, exhaust are OK. My increase valve noise, but it is supposed to improve low RPM and surging. I’m still evaluating.

I pulled the vapor canister, because I wanted to.

October, 2003

Been a person. Needed front pads

Well, I installed a exhaust and a Techlusion 259. The adds a nice, low growl to the but is not excessively loud. The techlusion helped with the surging. The is much smoother and has greatly driveability.

It has affected my gas mileage. Too to quantify.
