The specs are slightly different from the US model of the T:
When going through the bike (as I did not know its history) I found the following had been done by the previous owner:
Driving impressions: The gearbox is smooth (it is a post-1981),
the rear drive is absolutely quiet, no funny noises anywhere.
The Breakwell & Green give a thumping sound when idling, roooaaaring
on acceleration ... I measured the compression which is in the low
90s (but the same on both sides) but she runs superb and does not
blue AFAICS or consume excessive oil. A sport cam could be the reason
as the valve overlap can affect the compression measurement at
cranking rpm. It may give an artificially low reading. I have no means
of obtaining further historic information and will
continue observing the oil consumption in particular.
This bike can easily
be rev'ed beyond 6600rpm even in 4th gear if you're not careful.
I could imagine the mufflers are a bit more open. The airfilter is the
round one with the S-type drilled airfiler box.
It behaves very much like my father's '93 R100R and likes to be rev'ed
so I would assume it
has got a lighter flywheel. Never been officially on the road here
in England after finishing
the restoration in November 2003. In April 2004 I moved to Canada.
The bike followed in August 2004 and was immediately safety checked and
registered with a Year Of Manufacture 1979 in Ontario.
Three days later: rear spline replaced on beveldrive (Bruno was out of stock with
splines, but he had an as-new one with only very little visible wear available, forgot to take a picture), rear
wheel bearing replaced, front wheel bearing checked and OK'ed.
Now it is finally done. Bike's ready.
