Who'd you get the 65 from?

I may have a couple clips in my parts pile(s) let me look tomorrow...I could leave it with barb on my way up to the slope in a week or so. You should be able to use a generic circlip from a hardware store. I'd you can wait I'd order them from Bing along with new slide needles and seats... Really helped even out the 40s on my GS.
Later

Its a special clip that holds the needle in one of the grooves and keeps in place. its 14a in the carb brake down on the bing site. I got the bike from a little old lady. it sat in her back yard for 20 years under a tarp it took me 5 hours of cleaning the carbs thay were soild mass's not a part moved on them to working smoothly the only real damage was the needles thay were rusted I had to beet them out with a hammer. but even with the old needles it runs very good.Iam going to make a order from bing I have to get a few more things from them anyway thanks oh heres the old tarp bike one in its resting place and one after a bath all on the same day.

We'll have to have a shootout....

I am in the process of weaseling a '65 out of a fellow down here in Homer for my girlfriend. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson after an ex dumped me over the phone while up at prudhoe and sold the bike I gave her and used the money to escape to Mexico during the middle of winter........I guess I'm a sucker for the bitchy types. I do think the title will stay in MY name this time...(for insurance reasons of course)

I digress. What I was wondering was that some Bings have the circlip free needle that you rotate 90 degrees to push/pull into the next position. The 32's I used to run were like that. I was thinking about running an old pair of Mikuni flatslide carbs off of a snowmachine because I heard those '65s were real snappy on the takeoff. I'd love to build one that could hang with my R100GS. Last year I kept fiddling with the carbs on it untill It paid off mileagewise. I used to tune for top speed, but I am much happier now with 10 more MPG. Last year coming back from Dawson, I filled up in Tok and was able to make it all the way to Palmer on one tank. I wonder what that treatment would have gotten out of my old stock heads and 32mm bings. fantastic I'll bet. I'm getting around 40+ as it is now.

Some of the best Before/After pix i've seen Friar. Damn good find and a damn good job giving the old champ life.

re: Bing Agency-- i've heartily recommended their tuning manual in the past. It used to be less than 8$ and is a good extra data source on the Bings. Good tech write-ups and better exploded diagrams than any of the other manuals. And FAR better to do yr research and talk to the specialists for parts rather than doing that fun "R65. Is that the Funduro??" grabass with the dealer parts-human.

Thanks not bad for some simple green and 5 bucks at the car wash. yep Iam ordering that manual with some other goodies. yep thay just got some new guy in at the bmw shop this week Deb the gal that runs the parts room saw me coming and said go eazy on the new guy we just hired him. I said Iam working on a 1982 R65 after a few minites of him fiddling on the computor he said what year in the 60s was it made? I said you know after this is over you will love me or hate me I don't know which yet. when he handed me some float needles in stead of slide needles I said WRONG BUNKIE its time for some edge-a-ma-cation. Deb sayin oh god here we go.

Mileage...

mostly I think it was the float level height. Did the full workover though. The biggest pain in the ass was replacing the seats pressed in the bottoms for the float needles. I'm not sure it was even needed but figured what the hell, I was tired of watching them kick around my tool box. Wet sanded the slides to remove some scratches and replaced the slide needles and seats. went down to 145 mains but I was worried about running lean so I went up to 152 mains(160s were too much). Idle jets are 45's I think... That circlip/needle position is an important one though. one down from the top (position 3) is where I like to run that....
I'd be doing better but I am kind of stymied by my low rear end gearing... My buddy has a R100T (Mr. T) that gets something like 48mpg without twin plugging. He's usually running a few less RPM too. That should have the same ratio rear as your RT. The interesting thing was that as an experiment we put the 32's that came with my GS on the T, and even though they were freshly rebuilt with smaller jets, the mileage went down a little... Go figure.

Good looking bike you have there, Mike. Don't get me started on that particular excuse for a parts counter though.
