1976 BMW Motorcycle R90S

41 hits ID #8683


Fortunately, BMW backed up this striking bodywork with exceptional performance. The basic 898cc, pushrod-activated, overhead-valve, air-cooled boxer twin makes do with 2 Delloroto carburetors (PHM38). In its R90S guise, BMW tossed the Bing carbs in favor of high-performance Dellorto 38mm units with accelerator pumps. They likewise bumped compression to 9.5:1 and output increased better than 10 percent, to 67hp. Also, a Dyna 3 Electronic Ignition system was professionally installed.

This R90S has a pair of rotors on the front axle. These rotors get the cross-drilled treatment for better performance in the wet. We also see an installed and adjustable steering damper mounted in the head stock to cope with the additional horsepower. The rider can adjust the tension of the damper with a knob mounted just above the head stock. This damper will help to prevent high-speed head shake, and will prove valuable when it came time to race it up!
