Re: Windy riding conditions
All the above advice is very good. I just want to say to check the case seam between he engine and transmission on the right side. If damp with oil stain the output seal from engine to outer surface of the clutch basket (engine driven part of the clutch group) is leaking, it is an O-ring. Everyone commonly says output seal or main seal but it is generally that O-ring. Main rear seal is in the same neighborhood. There are two threads on how to repair it in I-BMW.COM a good K bike site. Plenty of folks there that will help you. I personally like the 1998 to 02 bikes the best. There are few problems that are hard to fix other that that pesky o-ring. And if it is leaking or has not been replaced yet, accept that you will be doing this and just go for it because after it is done you'll love the bike. A low miles bike can be had for 5,500$.
