FYI, I have an airhead, but it's not a GS so I never go into GSpot, hence I didn't know about this poll untill I saw a dead cow.

It works awesome, and shifts unlike any other airhead I have ever ridden.
My '86 R65 gearbox got rebuilt a couple of years ago after the same output bearing started grumbling and groaning. We went back to the old-style circlipped output shaft and added all new bearings, and it is the best shifting bike I have ever owned....completely snick-snick all the time, and actually goes into neutral when I want it to, unlike my Ducatis and SV650.

Airhead lovers unite

With the huge interest in airheads, I definitely vote we put together an airhead forum. It would definitely make the airhead threads more enjoyable to have only airhead info in them. I enjoy reading about lots of different kinds of bikes but the airheads are my primary interest. It would be absolutely great to have an airhead forum!

Oh, YEAH

I joined this site more for gleaning airhead info than for the Adventure. An airhead forum would benefit those of us who have and love them. It would give us technical and emotional (yeah, bite me) support. Also, we who appreciate the longevity and reliability of the older engines can find kindred spirits among the Beemeristi.

This thread started 2+ years ago, and we still don't have an "Airheads" Forum,.............So,.......Old School morphed into just that! Here's to Airhead Owners & Lovers!

I was thinking just a R100GS forum... it seems like 6 or 7 of 10 are related to that machine.
