If the area above the oil pump is moist and as long as you are in there a RMS is about $40, might as well do it. Heed the advise on crank movement.

I don't think $9k is out of line on the 90S, especially if he has the original seat (and center stand?).

The 75 looks cool, but $6k seems high. It looks to be a 1974 model with some mods.

Never heard of it on Beemers. Buells had a Bank Angle Sensor that would perform this function. I think the solution was to cycle the ignition to reset the fault code.

$1,400? Are they that rare?

I do see that it's listed as new, so I guess there's a premium for that.

No 'mountains' in Michigan, especially the Lower Peninsula. Get an ORV sticker from the DNR. Best paved roads are M-22 from Manistee to Northport and M-119 from Harbor Springs to Cross Village.
