Re: aligning the wheels

Just a brief description about my experiment with my RS:
We all know (owners of early RSs) that the bike is pulling to the right. We
all load the lefthand side systemcase much more to counterbalance this
I built a wheel alignment jig, added double shims between the wheel hub and
the drive unit, made a 6 mm thick shim too....
Now I am machining of from the hub of the wheel to get the rim closer to the
right side, closer to the drive unit. The result is very promising but I
need more time.
I'll be out of town for the next 3 weeks but on my return I'll continue the
remedy, which I will write up in details including the alignment jig.

Speak for yourself. I found Mac-Pac to be much more fun. If you want to talk
strictly about BMW motorcycles, and you're okay staying away from some
"sensitive" BMW topics, then IBMWR's list admins will help to keep
conversations on-topic. But if you are interested in a more social venue, in
which a much more diverse set of interests may be expressed, and with no
brow-beating, then the Mac-Pac list is the way to go. For more info:

This Oilheads list is still useful for 100% Oilheads info, so that's why I
stay subscribed.
