My 1100RS

Postby fontana » Sat Nov 05, 2016 11:25 pm

Out today fettling my 1100RS
Done a full to half faired conversion on it.
I prefer the look.
The panels cost me £30 from an ebay seller.

:D

However I discovered a little oil weeping from the final drive.
Suspect (hope), pinion seal.
Always spannering to be done on Beemers, but I still love it.
These older RS's really do have to be one of the most underrated sports tourers around.

Always liked the look of that bike, still looks great today, the one done in racing livery is sublime.

That looks a nice example too :)

Racing livery
Do tell me more
It's a late model, so should be void of the gearbox issues that plagued the earlier one's.
By the way, strange thing.
I wiped out all the oil I found under the rubber boot and have done a couple of hundred miles.
Checked it today, and it's bone dry.
Weird.

Sorry, my mind was playing tricks, The white one with powder blue seat, my mind was playing tricks thinking it was a Martini rep, but it should have been!
