I need advice. I was looking on Craigslist last July and came across a BMW crotch rocket that had NO front end. The caption was "Fix my BMW" So after calling the cell number and finding out this person is only 6 blocks from my house I agreed to take a look. I have ridden Air head and K bikes. I have done most of the work on them.
I gave the owner a "list" on what he needs. 2 months later he called me and asked if I could put the parts back on this BMW. He had already replaced the forks and wheel when I checked it last night. The triple tree wasn't aligned and I can do that for him. I know that these steeds have all sorts of electronics.
Is it better to tell him to find a BMW mechanic instead of a back yard mechanic like myself? ABS isn't hooked up to the front yet. I have a gut feeling that I should walk away. What stuff needs to be checked before starting the machine?
The other problem is this fellow doesn't have a motorcycle endorsement, claims he knows how to ride but a S1000RR?
