Again, yes it works just fine. My /5 has an r100S engine and trans. Nothing to it. Enjoy it. Mine is a SWB /5, and it lifts the front wheel in first gear without playing the clutch. It's fun!

I made a tool to pull that flange off that worked great. You can borrow it if you'll pay shipping both ways. I put a picture of it up a couple of years ago, if you want to search for it.

Dual plugging will definitely help on the pinging front. As you know, the R60s are very prone to pinging. I helped out a buddy with a badly pinging R60/6 in removing the heads and de-carboning the...
