Took the plunge and bought an 86 R80 last night. Seems to run and ride well, but I'm new to BMWs and could use advice on several items:
It was gone over by Bobs Bmw about 18 months ago and had the carbs rebuilt, fluids changed (Annual maintenance), head stock bearings done, and new tires. No mention of spline lube.
What are the 10 things I should check first and keep and eye on? I already noticed that the plug wires are cracking and should be replaced.
Looking for keys to the bags, are they available and from where?
Need a tool kit as there is none with the bike. Sources?
What items are suggested to carry along such as plugs, cables, etc?
That's enough for a start. Insurance today, tags tomorrow, ride the beast on Saturday.
