That is what I'm picking. Has detectable slop between the fork leg & stantion. But the bushes actually don't look too bad. I'll put some new ones in & try again. My fault- I should have investigated further when they weren't working well initially.

I'm now on the lookout for another set, because I suspect that these have had a shitty life.

If it was just seals & oil, then you should learn how to do it yourself. Its fairly easy to do.

Hi there lil airhead people.
I did obtain a photocopied version of an old mate over your way. They shall remain nameless & may possibly contact you indepedently. They were a bit hesitant to do it due to copyright issues.
I don't have a pdf file but it would be good if someone else wanted to scan & send.


I have the book right in front of me tho & I'm a total Bing expert so ask away - go on anything

Ok I'll start

" Hey Padmei what's Bings recommendation period for diaphram replacement? regards Rob Farmer"

Well Rob good question

Bing states on page 12 that you should replace your diaphram on your CV carb every 2 years. Hope that helps. Anymore?

"Hey padmei i've been around BMWs before you were out of nappies however I can't seem to remember what causes fuel spatter on the RHS while the bike is at highway speeds? I don't think you'll know & will probably argue your findings. Supershaft"

Hey Supershaft welcome aboard. What I've found working on BMWs for a little over a year is the faulty part is the air tube & BMW should replace it with part#13721254654

Anyone else?

Big fan of Snowbums site then?. Any issues with color blindness? You forgot to vary your font size for emphasis. BTW, I'm posting these imaginary conversations on UKGSer & Olds Cool to see what reaction we get...

Bing manual order details

The Bing manual is available for order here:

http://www.bingcarburetor.com/manual.html

only USD11. Free shipping when you order a genuine rebuild kit. Their e-mail address is the best way for us NZrs to deal with them. I have found them very responsive.

Amazing this thread keeps on going & going without the OP doing anything on his bikes

Hey i'm gonna change it to a tyre thread - seriously. I might give up on the knobblies after these ones get more rooted. Are smooth tyres rally bad on gravel or not? Not worried about off road but for Molesworth etc. Tried the shinko 705s on a few other guys bikes & just as good as knobblies I reckon.
Are you guys (I know Nutso is) running knobs or what? i am gonna ttrailer the bikes down to Ruapuna for a blat & want a DP that will be good on the gravel but more roadie so i can scrap the barends. I'll have my helmet cam on too so you guys can gasp whenever you want.
Not intersted in expensive tyres tho thanks.

I recommend a nice new set of kenda trackmasters

I can guarantee you'll scrape the barends on the first serious sealed corner

OK, here’s some pics then.

P1010920

P1010925

Looks like I have just enough room with the KTM fork spacing, BMW x-spoke wheels, and a big caliper. Still figuring out the 320mm disc though.

OH, and I said goodbye to this last week:

Website is very old school (I liked it when I was still on dial up - up to last year!) but the product and the service is great.

A lick of paint & it'll be good as new.

what are you gonna do with your wheels?
I'm asking around experts about the advantages/ disadvantages of powder coating vs spraying them black. Black does look quite horny.

Those brakes look good but the disc is a bit warped.
What tyre is that on the front & do you find it ok?

That Brembo looks the goods. 4 piston?

So what are you going to do with your spokes?
