Hi, Michaelball7 after careful deliberation 4 out 5 BMW Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm. Good luck and have a nice day. What year did BMW bikes switch to unleaded fuel

SOURCE: Hi, I've got a bmw r100 rt 1981. At high speed 105

sounds like you need to look at the carbs there not getting a good fule flow to them,,,,check this first,,you need to adjust both carbs to open the same amount and this can only be done on the throtle cable's at the carb,,,if your bike feels a bit lower on power than your palls,,do a compreshion test on both bikes,,if his has more compreshion than yours thats why he can wip you on hills!

Can I use unleaded gas in my 1981 bmw r100cs motorcycle


Hi, Anonymous not in your lifetime I have done many top ends back in the day where the valve and seat condition for running unleaded fuel on pre 1980 heads was not worth getting your BVD's in a bunch there was slightly more pitting but nothing worth mentioning for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

I have an 1982 f 250 4.9 and go through carburaters a lot. New ones last may be a year then start burnning way to much gas. The carb has an idle adjustment and a curb idle adjustment no air gas mixture...


1982 ?? their wouldnt be any adjustment as they are fixed jet carbs ,you could try fitting new jets but whats causing them to eat away in the first place i dont know unless its the fuel additive that you have to add to the unleaded fuel

I just bought it and need to no which gas is best for it out of the three types. and if i put regular gas in, will that break it!


when you open the gas flap to put gas in it should say "unleaded fuel only" or " premium unleaded fuel only". If it says premium only use premium. If it just says unleaded then you can use normal unleaded gas. But some stations have a lower grade unleaded gas. Use 88 octane or better.
