A-Red Bill Posted October 18, 2007 Share Posted October 18, 2007 With 102,000 miles on the clock I can't ignore the right trottle body on by 2000RT any longer. It is clattering off idle and showing signs of air leakage. You can grab the bell crank and move it back and forth at least 1/8th inch. It is now difficult to sync the bike and surging has returned intermittently. The best price for a new one is just over $150.00 from Chicago BMW. It is hard to find a used one at Beemer Bone Yard indicating that it is a common wear item. Rebuild parts are available from Bing Carburetor. Total price for rebuild parts is $75.00. The spendy part is the butterfly shaft. It is a fairly soft brass and wears at the bearing points. My impression is that it is about an 80,000 mile part. Has anyone had success rebuilding this unit?? I already have it apart on my desk and seems like a piece of cake. Link to comment
