    No the one in the tool kit works great just want a socket for the tool box.

    Finally got the fireplace installed! That only took a year! Looking forward to projects this winter now!

    Got the transmission today! Completely rebuilt, gears were in great shape all new seals and a deep cleaning. Looking forward to Sunday, supposedly a big storm so I should be able to spend the whole day in the shop.

    Next question is does anybody have any suggestions on cleaning these? I hit it some with a scotchbrite pad. Also any tips on cleaning the injectors?

    That's what I was going to say, but then again most don't probaby have lathe access, and a box of odd mismatched sockets to use. Fun to make a custom tool ;-)

    Well after getting roped into helping my buddy finish insulating his master bedroom I got an afternoon of work time in. First off cleaned and lubed everything. The drove shaft was covered in rust, took alittle while to get it all cleaned up. Then onto mounting the transmission!

    Then on to the starter and sarter cover. This was really uneventful. The cover needs some love. I need to find a deal on a clean used one or possibly repaint.

    After that in struggled with the swing arm. I couldn’t for the life of me get the driveshaft to hook into the rear u-joint so I pulled the final drive. Once that was off it was easy to put it all back together.

    I mounted the tire to see if there was any play and luckily there’s wasn’t. I’m pretty sure the seal on the crown bearing is shot? But I want to ride it and see where oil comes out at. I’ll prolly ride about 500 miles after this is back together then do a full fluid change.

    Then it was time for the rear sub frame to go back on and then fitting Airbox, inner fender, fuel lines, fuse box, shock....

    Note to self, air box before shock...

    The bike came along way, I’m one o ring on the injector away from being able to hear it start. It does kick over really nicely tho! I also need to address the Airbox it’s a nice shade of grey instead of black. Maybe armor all? Lol idk.


    The wire harness was a mess so I had to sort that out. I’m alittle confused on what these two connectors are for. I’m not sure if I’ve ran them to the right place but this seems like where they wanted to go.

    For the airbox, a light sanding and paint. Or, I have been successful with simple black shoe dye.

    Got a few mins tonight on the bike! Fixed the wiring harness finished installing the pressure regulator to injectors! Turn the switch and...... nothing not a peep. No fuel coming out the lines nothing no fuel pump kicking on. Disconnected the lines and nothing then all of the sudden fuel just came pooring out. Tapped the back of the fuel pump and now it just makes a chunk sound. Also realized that I installed the pressure regulator upside down. Any body have any thoughts? I think the fuel pump is gunked up, any thoughts on how to clean it? Is there a rebuild kit, or do you just buy a new one? I saw on beemer boneyard that they have two options anybody with any experience?

    Jim, I didn’t think about shoe polish but that sounds like it would do the trick!

    For the fuel pump. hit the ground and hot with 12V, then reverse the polarity and do it again. Do it several times to break it loose. Often, if fuel sits in it for a while, it gunks up the pump. This can break it loose.

    BTW, looking good! :thumb

    Should I pull it out of the fuel tank? Do I really need to flip the pressure regulator?

    After further consideration the pressure regulator is pointed in the correct direction. So I don’t think it was installed backwards, the manuel shows the longer arm flipped from the way it is on the bike.

    You can try it in the tank. You will know if it works by the sound. Stuck it clunks if anything. Broke loose it makes a whirring sound.

    Yeah, you can't get the regulator in backwards of your uel lines will be on the wrong side.

    Also thought I’d try some plastic restorer and this stuff brought the plastic right back!
