Go get it. It's got a Corbin seat and it's still $500 less than I paid for mine. That's a screaming deal.

Pix of my '95 E900

I bought this E900 last fall. It didn't run very good. After improving the electrics, re-building and synching the carbs, and adjusting the valves, it now runs like a top. I finally got to take it for a long ride this month. Here are some pictures. These were taken on La Gloria Rd, south of Hollister, California, off of Hwy 25.










I'm signing up for the Sheet Iron dusl sport ride in May. Anyone going?

parts

unfortunately the the air intake boots are long out of stock
some people overhauled the rubber with some sort of stuff just search the thread and you will find it
i think that all the relays can be swapped for regular automotive ones
and the shock needs to be send to ohlins for a rebuild

I would change the cam belts before I ran it much longer.

Why don't you send an e-mail to Road and Race in Oz and ask them?
roadrace@cci.net.au
http://www.roadandrace.com.au/index.html

These dudes advertise rebuilding Ohlins shocks, but I've no personal knowledge of their work.
http://performanceshock.com/

Ted Porter's BMW Shop sells Ohlins shocks and does work on BMWs. He's been a helpful guy on the BMW AirList. If he doesn't repair Ohlins shocks, perhaps he can make a suggestion of a reliable repair shop.

Yes. Good eyes. Avon Gripster size 130/80-17. Seems to work OK, but, I'm curious to try pros and cons of different meat.
