The 1983 R80ST transmission is the same as the 1983 R100RS transmission that I rebuilt previously. So in this document, I provide links to the 1983 R100RS documents showing how I disassemble, rebuild and reassemble the transmission. I will provide pictures and details about what I find when I open up the R80ST transmission and will document any work I have to do on the R80ST that is different from the work I did on the R100RS.
I have the transmission cases vapor blasted by Colorado Vapor Blasting in Arvada, CO who is generously providing a discount to me in support of my goal of a charity auction of this R80ST to support the Motorcycle Relief Project.
Here is the link to the documentation for the transmission disassembly, rebuild and assembly including pictures of the 1983 R80ST transmission.
Here are pictures of the rebuilt transmission.
Congratulations for your publications.
I have been following you faithfully for a long time.
I happen to own an R80ST and this tutorial makes me very happy.
Would you be so kind as to tell me the torque you apply to the shifter?
Thanks and best regards from my admirer Manué.
I’m glad this project is helpful to you. I just tightened the bolt on the foot shift lever “tight”, but I don’t lean into it as it’s only an M6 bolt, so the torque is pretty low.. I didn’t use a torque wrench.
Thanks again for taking the time to show us the process of completely rebuilding this wonderful motorcycle. Sure takes a lot of work for this worthy project, plus the time to let us follow along! Thank you!
You’re welcome. I hope this information helps folks work on their airheads and keep them flying for many years to come. 🙂
Sei il numero uno,con i tuoi tutorial, mi si aperto un mondo.
Grazie per le gentili parole 🙂
