"As most of you will know, ‘Flipfly’ (Phil) fell heir to a 1990 R100GS when his father, ‘Pastyman’, sadly passed away earlier this year.

This 100GS had a hard life before Pastyman acquired it, having done over 100,000 miles on a world tour. It was not in good health and let Pastyman down occasionally. In particular the gearbox packed up when he was attempting a tour of Spain, so the tour was never completed.

The box was repaired, but Phil wanted it checked over as he intends to take it to Southern Spain later this year. I said I would “have a look at it”.

This is an account of what I found and gives an indication of what can go wrong in an Airhead Gearbox."
