Anyone have a touratech or happy trails rack & panniers for an R100gs?
Are you looking for an G/S front hub or a GS front hub?
I can help with a G/S front hub.
three r90s listed in the Boise craigslist, $9k, wants one buyer.
The add lists 2 1974 R90/6 and a 1973 r90s, except the r90s isn't a '73. He must have misremembered.
First year will be Smoke Silver with a kicker trans. Some like em, some don't. Good deal for a local.
"I’ve got a right side chrome for an 93 R100R.
I’m looking for a left, or a pair."
What do you do for a sidestand?
After I ditched the right side crash bars on my '93 R, so I could get to the oil filter, I cut the left side down to just enough of a nub to accommodate the sidestand. After upgrading to the Migsel sidestand, the original went into a box in the garage.
I have an after market side stand of some brand I don’t know. It’s chrome and has the spring hidden inside.
Uke, I’m not sure I understand your post?
As posted above, I need a left engine guard....or my right side is for sale.
On the R100GS, and I think the R100R, the factory side stand mount is part of the left crash bar. Remove the crash bar and there's no place to mount the side stand.
The aftermarket side stands for the 80/100 GS usually use either the engine mounting bolts, the rear footrest mount or a combination of both. The nice thing about these side stands is they are much easier to reach
The standard R100R has the side stand integral with the left side crash bar. Not so for the R100R Mystic.
I'm looking for the wheels for my project:
- The Rear 17" tubeless spoke R100R or R100GS
- The Front 18" or 19" tubeless spoke R100R, R1100R/GS, R1150R/GS
I'm in the USA if it matters.
Has anyone used these bungs? I have a tank getting boiled and sealed at a radiator shop and it has at least one bad bung which I supplied a replacement for, this one from bungking. The shop just called and said these new bungs don't accept the petcocks. Thankfully they haven't welded them in yet. I should have checked before I dropped them off. Anyone have a similar experience?
So that's who got the 'bungking' URL I applied for....
CDD, the website says that these bungs are for the Triumph-style tanks. I wonder if the thread pitch is also British instead of the standard M20x1.
I still have both of these R65LS's if anyone is looking or you know someone.
I got a cool custom made bung from wirespokes about 8 years ago that he had a local machinist make... he might have more
I have used them and did not have any problem screwing on the petcock coupler. Was he trying to screw on just the coupler or the whole petcock with the coupler? If it was just the coupler, did he have it oriented correctly (one side has right hand threads and the other has left hand threads)? Were the threads in the coupler clean? If the threads have any dirt/corrosion on them it will be hard to screw it on to the bung since the threads are so fine.
I think the bungs will work. Yesterday, I went to the shop with a thread gauge, a couple petcocks, and a dial caliper. The bungs just have fresh, sharp threads, and they're like .003 bigger than the tank threads. Mated to dirty old petcocks and there was just enough resistance to not thread in more than one turn. I appreciate that they stopped and called for a sanity check rather than proceed with forcing potentially mismatched threads. I advised to clean everything thoroughly and if necessary buzz the new threads on a wire wheel to knock off their sharp points.
