At Last It Happened !
Preparing for the trip will start at May 10 and rebuilded carbs yesterday. We were linking the throttle cables to the carbs of My R80 Gs Basic, we realised that at least half of cable was broken/cut and entwined especially at handlebar and carbs entry. It was impossible to adjust the carbs for correct setting. Engine started to yelling.
There is no BMW repairshop and no shop I can find throttle cable. We arranged to go a bike repair shop nearby. Then, gas didn't work at all.
Felt so bad. Asked for a truck to put the bike on.
Ordered throttle and clutch cables. Now I don't know if I can put the wires on or should I take them to repair shop? What do you think?
As a result:
We must have throttle and clutch cables as spares at hand. Infact front brake cable will be good to have as spare.
I thank God, it didn't happen to me when I was on the trip... In this case had to call home country or someone from the community (if exist) in the country I am in and try to do it myself or finding someone to fix it.
