Repair Manual R80GS-R100R

Cleaning up my computer and I found a PDF of the above manual. It is the BMW manual for paralever rear ended bikes (R100gs included). Its 168 pages (2 manual pages per page). Anyone want this? I can email you a copy, maybe, of if someone else could host it??

I dont need it, and would like to clear up some space.

Thanks Stephen, d/l'd it and it works great!

Now between my Clymer, Haynes, BMW manual, Snowbum's website, and countless printout from the airheads list, I'll wrench even slower as I cross-reference yet another manual.

Someday I should just chuck all the manuals and go by Gestalt.

Hey thanks. I have been looking for something like this for ages.
It looks really good.

Anybody got one for a twin-shock R100 so I can get the rear bevel details?

Wow! that is a great find!

Now do we know where the manual can be found for the R80G/S and comparable models?

In my basement. Hard copy, sorry. I did buy it off this site (along with the parts catalog), and I think they are available for purchase, new, from some vendors, maybe even the fatherland.

I've got a hard copy, too, and have been meaning to scan it befor I get it all greasy. Harass me by PM once a month and I promise you won't have to do it more than twice.

Wow, that would be a really great thing to do. I'd even paypal you some cash so you can get drunk while you do it - as long as the scans are good though.

PM's will be forthcoming.

So, is there an R80G/S factory service manual to be found online (PDF)?
