That place is near where I live. That bike will most likely end up in Australia. Most of the nicer bikes there get shipped to collectors down under.

+1

Look for shiny areas on the "cup". Additionally, the sensor trigger needs to be mated with the pulley using loctite black max 380 or equivalent.

This was my issue, and also the fix.

My "new to me" 1976 r75/6

I've really grown to love this bike over the last 5 months.

It's incredibly clean for having over 100,000 miles.

Yep that's the one. I should have been more specific. Doing mine today on my 1100s with 134,000 miles. I'm sure I'll notice the results.
