    I can re-haul intakes for all 1100 an 1150 BMW boxer motorcycles.


    After using the bike for a few years, the spindle and the intake bushings get worn, resulting in the spindle play, resulting in that annoing rattle and may leading to bike surging.


    I can fix your intake if you send it over or I cand send you a complete rebuild kit and do the work yourself.


    A kit contains:
    • a new splindle(shaft);
    • necessary bushings;
    • set of complete o-rings;
    • the small screws that hold the plate to the shaft.
    Having the intake full repaired is just like having a new one, but at a fraction of a cost.


    Just contact me specifying what bike model do you have and the manufacture year.

    The price is 60$ + shipping.

    Hey Dan, I need one of these kits on my bike bad. Im tired of having random numbskulls commenting "your valves are rattling". I've got a 95 r1100gs. Im in the process of troubleshooting a no start problem right now, but would like to make your kit the next purchase after I get that straightened out. If you don't mind, can you email me the price for having you install it, also any contact info and payment instructions. My email is cpuckett812@gmail.com. Thanks, have a good one

    Dan,

    I just did my right TB and can't believe how quiet it is now. Instructions were spot on, nice job on the photos. The new shaft and bushings are very tight!

    Using the copper wire to remove the busihings worked great. I had to use heat on the aluminum cap side as even with the copper wire tap I couldn't get it to work. Heating the TB helped a lot in getting it out. Also, my aluminum cap was bonded to the TB and it took heat to get it to come loose as well.

    Everything worked great, so thanks for the great instructions. Oh yeah, this kit was $100 less than the company kit that made the TB's. Can't believe it would be any better.

    LK:clap

    a couple of questions on your rebuild kits.


    1- how much is shipping to the us ??

    2-is the shaft the same as the stock dimensions ? do you have to use the bushing included or can you just put your shaft in the stock bushing?are all the dimensions the same ?

    3-who makes the parts? where are the parts made ?

    Hi,

    1-depends on where in the USA. It's between 13 and 19$, more or less.
    2-the shaft is the same. You can reuse the bushings but why, new bushings are provided in the pack, and it's not a hard time swapping the old ones.
    3-I make them. The precision on the cnc machines I use is pretty good, it goes to 0.001 mm ;) And I ship them from Romania.

    Thanks,
    Dan.

    Hi, what i found out was that my TBs have no locknuts on the inner side (pulleys). To assemble the TB, I need a locknut which screwes on the new shaft (spindle). Unfortunately those are not included in the kit.

    BTW, if you look really close at the picture in the first post of this thread (I think it is a picture of 1150 TB), you can see, that there is no locknut to keep the pulley on the shaft...

    Hey, just a short question, is the 60 dollar for a kit to repair left and right or for one side only?

    One side only. Way cheaper than the OEM repair kit though.

    I read about the rattle and now I'm wondering if that's the rattle I hear lately with my R850RT. It's fine when I don't toch the throttle (idling). But when I just tension the throttle cable a little bit, the revs are not rising yet, I hear this rattle. Not very loud, but it is there. It seems to come from the left side. First I thought it was the valves, but I don't notice any drop in performance whatsoever. It runs as smooth as ever, it's just that rattle.

    A couple of questions:
    *do I need to do both sides at the same time? They are subjected to the same wear.
    *I have a 1997 R850RT. Are the throttle bodies the same?
    *what are other effects of the wear? What's this surge?
    *My bike's got nearly 160.000km on the clock. Is that a reasonable milage for this wear?

    Hi Mike,

    My comments inline:

    Best test is to get the fairing off the bike and get your fingers on the back of the TB's, and check if the pulleys, where the cable goes around them has any play. It shouldn't. Play in the pulleys mean that the spindles are worn.

    Ok, thanks. I'll check when I get the chance.
    I mean that the topic says R1100/1150, and I have an 850. So, that's why I asked.

    Yes, I have checked with realoem.com and the intakes have the same code. So the kits fit to your bike too.

    We can continue this discussion on PM.

    As an update:

    I have found that instead of using a copper wire to remove the bushings, a bent plastic zip tie works even better.

    On some recent repairs I just bent one zip tie and put the screw inside it. The bushing comes out easily ;)
