Does anyone have the pics of the subframe on this bike? We have one in the shop at the moment and it could be useful. The link below no longer works.

Thanks!

This is a sweet rig that was at Sipapu a few years ago.

Sorry I didn't get any closeups of the mounts on this one.

We not only make mounts for the R1200C but we also make a new from billet ball joint mount for the telelever front end that moves the front wheel forward for lighter steering. As you know on the R1200C the ball joint mount forms part of the front fender as does our new part. $1200 and in stock.

Hi Jay,

I know you make these, but we are in the UK, so we need left handed mounts and we normally fabricate our own work.

I'd be interested to see your mounts though, and the ball joint, if you don't mind sharing with this side of the pond! Completely understand if you'd rather not though.

Cheers,

Rod (Motopodd Ltd)

Here is a photo of the stock ball joint mount along with our new mount.

I had one of those lower ball joint mounts on my R1200C and it made a big difference in the steering effort. Jay does do good work.

Chromeheads- the R1200 C forum

just a little info to pass along if anyone cares to dig in...
Chromeheads is a forum specifically for owners of the R1200C variants.
There is a very generous fellow on there, a BMW mechanic, who has been kind enough to put up some great info on basic maintenance and troubleshooting.
He has a hack rig.

Yep that was another rig I should have kept. So many toys and so little space.

Here's the only view I have of a C's sub-frame. You'll have to blow it up to see it.

Thanks all, still don't have any decent pictures of a C subframe though!

I guess we'll have to work it out ourselves, I was particularly interested in Ivan Rider's shot of the black C, as this is the same model we have in, and the pic shows that the pannier has been retained which is also what we would like to achieve.

R1200C subframe

We've hacked quite a few R1200C bikes. We make a subframe that doubles as a skid plate. Send me an e-mail if you want to see pictures.
I can't figure out posting pictures on this site.
Regds,
