Clymer Manuals BMW R75/5 /5 On The Lift Motorcycle Road Test Video R50/5 R60/5 R75 Cafe Racer
Welcome to On the Lift episode two. I'm James Grooms, Publisher of Clymer Manuals. We're at the Tech Center today and on the lift we have a 1970 BMW R75/5 http://clymer.com/bmw-r50-r60-r75-r80-r90-r100-airhead . See also R50 and R60. The /5 ( slash five ) series, introduced for the 70 model year, was a real watershed bike for BMW motorcycle production. The previous generation of machines [ post war wwII R50 R50/2 /2 R60 R60US R69 R69S ] were known for their reliability, comfort and quiet operation. Once exclusive attributes to BMW, however, many of the new models from Japan [ Honda in particular with the CB350, CB450 and revolutionary CB750 ] now achieved this at a lower price along with impressive performance. Greatest ever motorcycles discovery
The /5 was available in 500, 600 and 750 cc capacities... this being a 750, thus the R75 designation [ R50/5 R60/5 ]. While relying on BMWs trademark air cooled boxer twin, the model is a radical departure in many ways from the previous models. A telescopic fork replaced the Earles leading link fork. 12 volt electrics replaced a 6 volt system. And to the horror of many a BMW loyalist the bike was available in a color combination other than schwartz mit weiss.
The horizontally opposed twin [ boxer, flat twin or airhead ] with overhead valves was all-new. Outwardly, the first noticeable change from the previous models was the placement of the pushrod tubes under the alloy barrels and cylinder heads revealing that the camshaft is under the crankshaft. [ Yes pushrods! While the world was going with SOHC and in some case DOHC, BMW stuck with camshaft in the crankcase. ] The one-piece alloy crankcase features split type bearings in place of the previous ball bearing setup.
With aluminum covers over the air filter, starter and alternator, the engine appears to be immense. However, everything is alloy and once removed you can see how compact the engine really is. And the heavy forged crank and cam placed low make for a low center of gravity. You can really feel this during low speed maneuverability.
The four-speed gear box is splined to a dry single plate clutch [ /6 on models had a five-speed trans ]. The kickstarter carried over from the older models and as you can see swings out away from the bike. Power is transferred through a swing arm mounted drive shaft to the final drive.
The hemispherical heads [ hemi ] are fed on this model with CV or constant velocity carbs [ carburetor ]. R50 and R60 s used Bing slide valve carbs. With the carbs, spark plugs, valves, breaker points, air cleaner and battery easily accessed, and shaft drive, airheads are one of the sweetest bikes when it comes to working on them [ repair manual shop manual maintenance how to DIY camera mount ] This bike is not for sale make me an offer.
The front brake is an 8-inch twin leading shoe setup. By the early 70's most machines in this class had a disc up front. The rear is a single leading unit.
Looking back the /5 has developed a cult appeal, but at the time it was not universal loved by the purists. Sidecar use wasn't recommended, fiberglass fenders...oh no! And of course the introduction of the chrome tank panels in 72 along with a smaller fuel capacity met with strong disapproval. Now those toaster tank models command higher prices. The result of low production and changing tastes I guess.
Early production 5s could experience a speed wobble and a torque reaction when chopping the speed in a corner. So in 73 they added 2 inches to the swing arm and lengthened the frame. So now you have the short wheel base and the long wheel base bikes and the "which one is better" debate continues to this day. Honestly the SWB bikes just look better and that toaster tank...come on...and I love 60's era vintage and cafe racers. Japanese bikes [ like the CB77 Superhawk, CB450 K0 K1 blackbomber Suzuki X6 Yamaha YR1 ]!
Either way they were and still are great machines. The flat twin was considered a dinosaur by many in 1970. Instead of abandoning their heritage [ Germany Germans at their best, Deutschland uber alles !?], BMW took what they knew and created a technical masterpiece that has stood the test of time. This basic layout would be the foundation for 20 plus years and launch the R90S, the R100RS, the R100RT and the R80GS [Manual for /6 R60/6 R75/6 R90/6 /7 R60/7 R75/7 R80/7 R100/7 R90S R100S R100T R100 R100CS R45 R65 R65LS R80ST R80RT R80 R100GS R65GS R100R R80R R1100RS R1100GS R1100R Manual for 1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 Clymer manual BMW R50/5 through R100 GS PD M502-3 ISBN 0-89287-854-1] Music by Kevin MacLeod BMWON BMWMOA 5UNITED AHRMA CLYMER CLYMER.COM maintenance troubleshooting repair diy Wehrmacht Soldiers and Motorcycles - Soldaten und Motorräder Bmw Cafe Racer R75/5 1971
Clymer Manuals 1983 BMW R80RT On The Lift Motorcycle Road Test R80 R100 RT RS ST Cafe Racer Video
Welcome to On The Lift sponsored by Clymer Manuals
Greatest motorcycles ever discovery
Today we have a 1983 BMW R80RT R80 RT R 80 RT R 80RT on the lift. See also R100RT R100RS R90S . Following BMWs long held tradition; this is an evolution of the same boxer twin released in 1970 for the slash 5 ( /5 ) models.
======= Check out On The Lift 1970 BMW R75/5 =========
While featuring many changes over 20 plus years, this bike still bears the strong family traits of its predecessors.
In 1979 BMW introduced the first production motorcycle with an integral non-optional touring fairing. Working with the RS design, which featured cutting edge, for the day, wind tunnel testing, BMW made the fairing larger and added a tall screen for the RT. Today this fairing seems, well commonplace, but back then no other manufacturer was close to releasing such a model. The Honda GL1100 Gold Wing ( Goldwing ) Aspencade wouldnt be available from Honda until 1982. Of course you could purchase a number of bolt of fairings ( Vetter ), but these hardly featured the design standards set by BMW.
In 82 BMW offered the budget model version of the liter machine as the R80RT.
======== Suggested retail for an R80RT was $5490. The R80RT was $1400 less the 1000cc RT. This price did not include the optional hard bags. ========
======== The R80RT was available in two colors: Metallic Pacific Blue with silver trim and Metallic Red with gold trim. ==========
To compensate for the smaller displacement engine the R80 has a lower rear differential ratio by about 15%. In addition, the clock and voltmeter are not in the fairing; instead a couple of plugs cover the openings. Even with the higher revs, the 6.2 gal tank gives a range of roughly 230 miles at 45 mile per gallon.
======== A 1985 models tested out at 57 high / 45 low / 49 ave. mpg ====
The bike features a 5-speed transmission mated to the tried and true swing arm/driveshaft design. By this point a number of modifications were accomplished to the shift mechanism to prevent false neutrals and long gone is the kickstarter of the original /5 models.
The front brakes are Brembo twin calipers, unlike the R100, which has a rear disc, the R80 uses a drum. The drum works well and rear wheel removal is certainly simplified over the disc model.
Here you see one of my aftermarket add ons A Browns sidestand. This thing is a huge improvement over the original. Now that will certainly get some argument, but seriously, who can logically say the BMW sidestand is a good design. Personally Ive replaced that thing on every airhead Ive owned and will do so in the future.
The rear swingarm/drive shaft uses a twin shocks. In 1985 the R80RT rear suspension adopted the single shock Monolever design.
Along with the soft front suspension, these two areas are the most common upgrades. This bike is riding on its original front and rear suspension components and is slotted for a pair of progressive springs and new rears shocks, which will be a big improvement.
===== Aditional resources: www.BMWMOA.org, airheads.org and 5united.net =======
In the day, this bike was reviewed pretty harshly. Pretty unfairly really. Comparing this bike, with its controllable and predictable power and handling, to the late 70s/early 80s 750s wasnt applicable. And the comparison to the liter plus touring machines was also off. Really, as BMW often does, this was one the first sport-touring machines and ahead of its time.
