    A buddy picked up muffler for what he said was a R1150GS from one of his buddies. Turns out it does not fit my 2001 1150GS and I'm not sure what bike it would fit. I've had it in my garage for a few years and we are now prepping for a move and want to get rid of things we will not be taking with us. The exhaust is in very good condition and I would really hate to take it to the recycling center but I can't figure out which bike it would go to so as to list it for free on CL. Attached photos show the exhaust and the part number/bike numbers that are stamped into it. It is part number 18 32-1 341 257 and for BMW models R2R1085 and R2R0848. My web searching Kung Fu has been powerless at finding which bikes it would fit.

    Anyone know how to find out which bike it would fit based on the part number or bike numbers above?

    Anyone want if for FREE and live in the DC area?

    Thanks

    Definitely an 1100 bike exhaust, but which model I don't know. Most, if not all, 1100s had the catalytic converter + silencer as integrated units. Not so with the later, larger displacement engines.

    Were it mine, I'd offer it to JVB for one a rider in the area who will eventually need it. I've no idea, however, whether he'd want it taking up space in his garage.

    Very nice that you're trying to pass it along to someone who could use it.

    Does it not have a part number stamped on the thing? That would seem to end the mystery.

    That serial number will identify it.

    Thanks for all the replies.
    According to MAX BWM's parts fiche it is not a US R1100GS, R1150GS, R100RS, R1150RS, R1000GS or R1100RT. Their website also shows no match for the part number. The UK Ebay link PDXRider70 gave shows the correct part number so I assume it is a European R1100GS exhaust.
    Fun fact- ZEUNA was the exhaust manufacturer in Germany and they were bought out by another exhaust manufacturer. I would think it should fit a US R1100GS and will post it on CL as such with the note that it is a UK part.

    I hope it finds a home.

    It'll be more for R1100 platform rather than R1150 - 1100s had asymmetrical headers routed through rh side while 1150s did not... Random interweb pics:

    The markings R2R1085 and R2R0848 define the cubic capacity for the R1100 and R850.

    18 32 -1 341 257

    18 = Exhaust
    32 = Control parts
    -1 = Index or revision
    1 341 257 = 7 digit unique part number
