Re: Ohlins spring

Yes I had a feeling it might be too specific a question as there are many variables when it comes to spring rates etc. My bike has the standard shocks and before I commit to purchasing used Ohlins I wanted to check if the numbers on the spring seemed correct and not just a non specific yellow spring...

Ohlins spring

Hello
Looking for a bit of assistance.

Could someone who has a R1200S with Ohlins suspension see what the reference number printed on the rear shock spring is please?

Many thanks

Re: Bike cover, indoor.

Monday is fine. The bike spends most of its time indoors anyway waiting for summer to arrive :roll:

Re: Wanted: R12S rear seat cover/cowl

Good luck :!: I ended up getting one from someone in Germany.

Just a thought. Mine wasn’t the right colour either but instead of having it painted I got it vinyl wrapped so I can always undo it in the future easily if I want to. Not a perfect match but I’m happy with it.

Re: R12S parts wanted

Aren't mirrors common to a few models ? K1200 IIRC ? Turns out they’re not as I’ve found to my cost. They look identical and I bought a mirror from a K1200 via eBay this week but the part that attaches to the fairing i.e. the section where the screws go is ever so slightly a different shape to the ...

Re: R12S parts availability

Sorted now :thumbleft: A mixture of a German Facebook group member coming up with a black seat cowl and using the knowledge above that a K1300S mirror is the same fitment ended up netting an eBay purchase. I’ll get the cowl wrapped I think rather than painted. Makes reverting back to its original bl...

I did not know that. In that case it’s the shiny ‘Colgate’ one I’m after.

R12S parts wanted

Hi folks, Just recently picked up a R1200S and there’s a couple of parts I need/want. Firstly a RHS mirror unit. Doesn’t matter if it’s missing the glass and indicator. My stem had a chunk missing out of the end above the bit that attaches to the fairing :? Also I’d like (but don’t need :D ) a rear ...

Re: R12S parts availability

Ok so I found the diagrams and looks like I’ll need a full mirror unit. I don’t need the glass or indicator so I’ll stick up a ‘wanted’ advert. You never know :?

Re: R12S parts availability

Thanks for the replies so far. Before I give Motorrad in Chester a try as suggested is there anywhere on t’internet that gives part numbers and diagrams? I’ve done a search and couldn’t find much. The seat cowl is easy to describe over the phone but the mirror part may not be :|

R12S parts availability

Before I make a wasted journey to my nearest Motorrad parts counter to be met by a blank expression I was wondering if anyone could tell me if oem parts are still plentiful for a 2008 R1200S? In particular I’m looking for a RHS mirror part, not the full item just a part of it and also the rear seat ...

Hello from Ayrshire

Hi folks Just joined although not new to owning a BMW bike as I had a 2002 R1150GS a few years ago and had to sell it due to circumstances at the time :cry: There seems to be quite a price difference between an GS and an R1100S which makes the sportier model appealing at the moment. I know of the us...
