...first.

Just turned 140,000 miles!
Im the second owner since 1993.
Original gearbox with Honda Moly on the splines every 15k. The input shaft is a bit worn but its been that way since 1993/27,000 miles. Hond Moly is a wonderful thing.

Pichler faring (black unpainted) with gusstaferson short sport screen.
1988 K100RS front forks wheel dual brakes fender with sport forks. (Sorry no ABS Grin but the ring is there!) this is a 2.5 wide 18 rim so a 100/90-18 fits properly. I have Pilot Activs front and rear. Braided steel lines.  Btw this makes this R65 the best handling r65 at any speed in the country.
LS y rear rim with square final drive.
600 watt motoelectric Omega Alt PC680 battery.
Super bright LED headlamp with modulator.
K&N filter.
5 PIAA driving lights with H3 LEDs.
Givi e37 side panniers and e52 topcase with brake lights.
Hyper brake lights.
Kisan halogen flashing brake light.
Still original points in a can but coils have been replaced with a single Dyna coil.
Pateena galore!
The front coil mount has been fixed.
Valvolene 80w90
Valvolene 10w40 motorcycle oil for the winter. Summer VR1 20w50 with two (2) shims under the $3000 dollar o ring and no gasket.
I have the oil cooler kit in a bag but its not installed at the moment.
Heads rebuilt by boxerworks at 60k. Drive shaft rebuilt at 45k. Original bores and pistons with just rings and hone.
Ive done two iron butt rides on this bike (only the 50cc is documented 2006) and am on the list.
Speedo and tach both work. Secondary generator light installed. Still have the old R65 front end and wheels.

It needs:
rear main seal. (I have seals plus Ed Korn tool)
Day long saddle rebuilt but prolly just throw away as seat pan is not good. I have the original seat recovered with a good pan.
12 pullback Flanders bars need chrome.
Paint.

This bike is my Daily rider and runs great, starts down to 25F. Motor is quiet. Exhaust system has been replaced. Brown side stand.

I test rode a k1600gt and wants to make it my daily rider.
Pm me an offer if interested.

You have no idea how hard it is to do this.
Thanks.
Sympathy accepted gracefully. Cool

Pics to follow.

No, some of us DO realize just how hard this is; looks as if you've built the perfect touring R65.  Sympathy extended.

By the way, I am about to lube splines in the rear drive/rear wheel assembly.....Is that "Honda M-77 Moly Paste" that you use?  The only other option I see is " Dow Corning BR2 Molykote".  Both are available through Amazon.  Comments, please.

Yes.  Honda Moly.  Should be a grey paste.  Put it ONLY on the transmission input shaft after you clean the shaft.  Do not put Any of the paste inside the clutch splines as is pictured in the Clymer Manual.  Snowbum tells you to put a tiny bit on the tip of the clutch actuating rod in the center of the input shaft as part of the thrust bearing lubrication, but never on the clutch spines (The female part).

If you do lube the clutch splines as per Clymer, when you install the transmission back onto the clutch and the back of the motor, You Will sqeegee Honda Moly into the forward half of the clutch where upon centripetal motion will sling it out and contaminate half your clutch.  Half a working clutch on an R65 is a baaaad thing.

Ask me how I know.

I saw the bike listed on Ebay just now, and signed in here to ask, "Isn't this Semper Gumby's bike"?
Looks like you beat me to it tho!

Best of luck, on selling a legendary R65!

Semper, thank you for the reply; any observations on the lubrication of the rear wheel/drive hub also welcome.  Good luck on the sale (sumbody's gonna get a well refined toy), and good luck on the new bike.
