I had a shot at an 80 GS a few years ago and chose the R100/7 instead because it was $2000 cheaper. I should have gotten the GS. It's what might happen if my two current bikes could get it on & have...

I share your pain - a busy lifestyle + 2 bikes = much angst. I keep thinking I should get rid of my /7. Then I fire it up and say "no way".

FTTB, I manage to keep both limbered up. And it's nice...

I'm in the same boat as the OP, but I started with an airhead and got a KLR. I keep thinking I should get rid of the /7 but then I ride it and say "no way".

The KLR is good for errands in town and...

Broken spring pieces often turn up in the oil strainer, which is accessed on the right side of the engine. It's a good idea to check this anyway.

I'm pretty sure /5-era turn signal housings are still aluminum. If those ones are plastic, they're probably for a later model. I think they'll fit but obviously they aren't as durable or cool-looking.

Thanks for the additional info, guys! I haven't had any symptoms of the front seal leaking (no clutch slip or puddles up front). But the spline lube was my next planned task so I'll take a good look...

Turns out the circlip was inside next to the bottom arm. Minor PITA to get it out, but once done, the pin came right out. I'm glad I did this - the bearings & washers are starting to get pitted.

Actually, they did mention it, but I installed one in that big notch below, thinking that was the spot for it. Duh... :loco

Sure glad I checked in B4 busting out the hammer.

/7 Clutch Lever Pin

I just got an Interstate sealed battery for my R100/7. For $155 it had better freakin' last a while. (Yeah, I know - I got hosed. :eek1 FWIW it's made in the USA.)

It seems to be similar in size...

Doesn't look like any Holy Grail to me, but that's just my personal taste.

If it really turns you on and you can get it for next to nothing, (like, say $50?) maybe that's cool. Again this is just...

I'm glad this thread woke up - saves me a search (my /7 could really use this).

Thanks for all the responses, guys! I like the sound of that Tygon stuff. The NAPA is OK (is WAY thicker than BMW braid) but it does seem to crack up after a year or two.
