It’s time to put parts back into the frame :-). The first to go in is the engine followed by the transmission. You can read about what I did here:
I used information from the following resources to plan this work.
- Bob Fleischer: BMW Airhead Clutch Information
- Bob Fleischer: Serving Transmission Input (clutch) Splines, Throwout Bearing, Clutch Arm
- Duane Auscherman: BMW Motorcycle Clutch Removal, Inspection and Repair
As I had the engine stripped down, I was able to lift it into the frame by myself using some straps so my hands weren’t under the oil pan. The transmission isn’t very heavy, but there isn’t much clearance when the engine is installed and I had to remove the kick start lever or it wouldn’t fit.
Here are a couple pictures from the write-ups.
