Hey shane my recommendation is to replace the gears 1st and 5th and not to my knowledge is that a common problem to break gears like that you have to shift hard with out clutch ( power shifting )

good luck.

1976 r750/6 The bike loses all electrical power. from 1 - 24 hours later it comes back.

Hi, Larsandjudy and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

What do the case pins do on a BMW r75/6 and why would they need to be replaced?

I'd like a little more information but here goes. "Case pins" if you have dismantled the engine you will find these "pins" in strategic points in the casings. They are used to properly align the component parts during reassembly. They can be found in cylinder heads cylinder to block block halves or pretty well anywhere that a precision fit is necessary. This is a non wear non stress part after assembly I can't think of any reason they would need replacing unless damages or lost during dismantle. I rode a BMW R 75-5 across Canada once, great motorcycle but the seat was like sitting on an oak plank. Nice ride hope I helped

Poor gear selection. Selecting neutral between 2nd and 3rd.Occasionally unable to select 1st and 2nd gear.This bike has asidecar, I have owned it for one week and it has been standing for 1year. I suspect...

i agree, sounds like the clutch is dragging, fairly common when not been used for some time..adjustment / lubrication should do the trick..good luck..

I have a 1976 75 hp 2 stroke evinrude that is overheating. Just got it running after sitting for two years.

In the bottom of the engine is a rubber impeller/water pump. It is in the housing above the prop, not hard to change. Basic tools a six pack and about an hour. The part will cost you about $20, and you can order it from NAPA parts store. They will be about 50% less than a boat shop. Good Luck

I have a similar problem. I took the shredder head and gear box apart and found two stripped gears. True, the gears are plastic unfortunately (which is why they stripped.)

The gears are simple to get at and to replace. Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of gears for this unit (there are 3)?

If so, could you, please, email me w/ that information? (
I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.
