Just purchased a pair of EBC's (and new pads) for the R here:
CycleBrakes

Download the catalog to confirm part numbers. They gave a discount for ordering the Disk's and Pad's together, prompt shipping. Think it was about $520 or so.

There isn’t a whole lot of interesting things to report this week.

Supplies are coming in like the wire I’ll use to rebuild the HES harness. Thanks Seth! And, please come back.


Parts are being cleaned of old thread locker, awaiting the permanent bushing replacements.


The starter will be disassembled next week to inspect the can and bushings.


Lots of replacement parts are on order and man are they expensive. Want to guess what the clutch disk cost? And I need the entire clutch pack…..ugh.


The rear main is weeping….probably at the cost of its replacement!


The gear box is clean and awaiting new seals.


And the K bike; jealous over all the attention the old RSL is getting got a new can yesterday.

When I pulled the gearbox I noticed oil on the clutch push rod. Not a lot but enough to be concerned about.

I plan to replace all gearbox seals.

Will that fix the source of the oil on the push rod or am I overlooking something?

Thanks in advance for the help.

On an 1100? On a 1150 it might be brake fluid, right?

There are some upgraded seals for the gearbox input shaft, less prone to failure and improved design...

Have you guys ever considered drilling a small hole on the bottom of the gearbox, where it meets the engine? Some K-riders do it...

Not typically necessary on a boxer. The main seal isn't really a problem. On the 1100's oil on the clutch pushrod is usually from the rear input shaft seal, that works its way forward on the pushrod and can contaminate the clutch plates. Later 1100's had a felt washer added to the pushrod to help prevent oil from traveling forward.

Oil on the push rod is a strong sign that the seals are leaking, and you should address it given where you are. You'll have to open up the box and then you can replace the 4 internal seals. Take a close look at the shift forks while you are in there.

Technically, it is call a clutch thrust rod, but I think we all are talking about the same thing.

Yes, it looks like I'll be splitting the gearbox case to get to the output shaft seal--ugh. That is quite a bit of work to get to a seal; something BMW corrected on the later gearbox.

That work is 2 weeks off. My son needs to reassemble the starter motor this weekend and then we can move onto replacing the seals in the gearbox.

The starter is getting new brushes, bushings and a new magnetic housing.

Five, actually. Input shaft (both ends), output shaft, gear position indicator and shifter.

February 5, 2011.

Brandon and I completed the first part of the RSL restoration—overhauling a Valeo starter.

We replaced the field magnet housing, the brushes and a couple of bushings.

It went smoothly with the exception of getting the collar up over the retaining ring on the starter shaft. We had to use a gear puller and a lot of ugly faces to coax the collar onto the retaining ring.





Next week, we open the gearbox and begin replacing the seals after that we go after the rear main seal and then install the clutch pack.
