1973 BMW R75/5: Bing Carburetor Restoration

Over the Christmas holiday, I restored the Bing carburetors. A restoration is a bit more work than a rebuild since the goal is to restore the finish to factory new condition as well as replace worn parts and all the O-rings and gaskets. Much of the time invested is in cleaning and polishing all the parts. You can access the web page about this using the this link:

which is also on the list of pages to the right. I’m using BMW parts subsystem numbers for the rebuild blogs so you can correlate the procedures with the parts.  You can see the numbers on Hucky’s R75/5 parts ordering page.

Here are some before and after pictures.

  1. That looks like a smashing job that you’ve done to the Bing, I was looking forward to reading up on how you went about it but the “13 BMW R75/5 Bing Carburetor Rebuild” link does not work. Is there any way you can send me the link thru e-mail. I’d appreciate it if you could. I just got myself a R90/6 two weeks back and I’m away at work right now. I will be back home in two weeks and I’m looking forward to working on the BMW.

    • Hi Hank,

      Thanks for letting me know about that broken link. It is fixed now. And of course, you can click the actual page link on the right hand side of site page and that link works.

      Best of success.
