Two BMW riding buddies came over today to see the score and selection of tools/parts.
I had it up on the center stand, put it in gear, and rolled the rear wheel... we all listened to the sound.
"Uuhm, that's the splines. Sorry... those transmissions are not that bad, and you have all the tools."

More to follow.

And Tom, we're all stubborn & moody to a point. We ride KLR's.

So we've all heard those "alternate" meanings of "BMW".
Big Massive Wallet
Buy More Warranty
etc...............

I've quickly figured out it also means____________ But My Wife...
But My Wife...wants to know why I need two bikes
But My Wife...wants to know when I'm selling it
But My Wife...expects it to park outside the garage
But My Wife...thinks I have another mistress besides the KLR
But My Wife...doesn't understand why we ride

And my latest favorite,
But My Wife...wants to know how much this project is going to cost.

"I'll let you know after I ride it on the test run."

But My Wife...thinks that will be next week.

I haven't even got a parts list together yet.

Well, here's what the project looks like "before".



I don't think I'm going to get a chance to really start on it until after Christmas. I did get the lift cleaned up a bit and started making plans for a couple of modifications to add some tie down points.



More later on the project.

Ooof!

That's the way to get it done, though!

I think you're a better man than me, McGee!

Jeff,

Nice bike, that one will fix up nice.

For your table lift, get one of the harbor freight wheel chocks to replace the one that came with the table. The one that came with it went into the scrap pile as soon as I got the lift.

I don't have enough posts to send a link, but it is the gray one that is about $35.00 before the 20% coupon.

It holds the front tire so much better. I put a Goldwing on my lift and the chock can hold the bike up until I can get the rear tied down.

I store my lift on it's side when not in use to save room. I just unbolt the wheel chock. I also leave it off when doing any front end work.

Have fun with the project!

WOW! How many bags of small hardware do you have tied to the various components? I've had ATV's & Side x Sides with 16-20 bags of small hardware attached to the 16-20 components removed. Muffin tins can too easily get tipped over.

I've already been shopping or looking at an entirely new front chock set. This thing sucks.
I like the Derek Weaver one.

Once I get this project done, we'll look at doing some mods to the lift. I want to make some 3/4" square tubing receivers down the underside of it for tie downs.

Update----

Stumbled across a used shaft with the same part number out of an RT of he same vintage on eBay. So that saved me $229, and the first parts arrived so I'm over the hump and starting assembly.



and tear down............



If anyone is interested, I'll keep posting updates on the assembly.
