I was just wandering the net looking for saddle bag covers when I decided to come to the MOA page. Then I noticed the forums looked pretty cool so I signed up. Gotta love the high tech.
Here's a brief overview of my problem. 91 R100GS. Hard starting when cold. 33 mpg. Idles to me rough. Pops sometimes on left bank. Chokes out coming to a stop when cold. Runs fine on highway, but under load seems to vibrate excessive.
I've taken it to two separate dealers and it is somewhat better,(it idles now) but still isn't right. Compression is 150 on both jugs and the valves were trippled checked. Float bowls have been cleaned etc. Throttle cables lubed etc. Timing was checked thrice also, but I find it to be a degree off, dealer say it's fine.
Anyway I would like all your help in diagnosing finding parts and repairing this myself. I'm just tired of shelling out the bucks and not having my beemer run right.
All help will be appreciated.
