    Something odd

    My 1977 R100S has the same machined pad on the left front of the block. I stamped my initials on it as a discrete means of identifying my bike/engine if it were ever stolen.

    Glen -

    Since you how Canada as your home, is your bike a Euro model? That might be the reason some have it and some done. My '78 R100/7 is a US pad.

    Interesting, though, that BMW would have two separate molds for the block, one with and one without the pad.
