Hi Manuel, good to see you have made it over here. I have been watching your progress over on the 2V- GS forum with interest. The translators I use have made some of the text hard going though. Your bike has been brought up here from time to time, & there have been a lot of interest in it. :thumb

Hi Manuel, welcome to ADV Oldschool. I too have spent may hours studying the photos in your gallery and am particularly fond of one of the GS's with the 1100 rear end. :D
Cheers Phil

Ray Peake, the bloke who built my bike is going to use an 1150GS swingarm on his next special, starting very soon.

Manuel could you tell us how much wheel travel you get out of your 1100 swing arm?

Did you do something to the oil pickup in the sump with the engine tilted that far backwards ?

Thank you,

Swt-sports boxer
Thanks to all who have interest in my BMW Boxer. I am going to try to answer a few questions.
The bike has. Like all KTM and Husaberg models a travel of almost 300mm on the front axle Behind it have become with many modifications nearly 280 mm. This conversion is only suitable for the tough racing conditions.
The engine has considerably less oil than the standard unit. We have no Probelm with the foaming of oil. The only problem we had in recent years was the loss of the oil on the exhaust of the engine into the air filter box.
Yes, with the modifications to the modern wing of the 1100s BMW models we already have several years of experience.
We have some speziale productions facilitate the conversion.
Now nearly a special rubber is for the connection between the transmission and swingarm on the market. A longer bolts for the swingarm is also planned.
The new framework for the 2013 season has also got a changed geometry of the shock region.
I hope I could answer some questions.

Manuel -
Nice bike! Your work has already shown up here on ADVrider in a few places. I saw your thread over on 2-ventiler and was curious what the final weight of that bike is? I saw all of the lightened pieces you used and was wondering if you could tell us how much weight you were able to take off each of the major pieces. Did that rear hub come from HPN?

SWT-SPORTS 03-24-2013 08:29 AM
Hello Airhead Wrangler
The bike weighs with battery and all oils without fuel approx 157kg. Points to note: The tire with mousse are very heavy.
The wheel hub and rear wheels we can manufacture ourselves.

Clay Spinner 03-24-2013 09:07 AM

Have you guys thought of producing hubs for the three bolt g/s or st rears?

bgoodsoil 03-24-2013 10:59 AM

Man look at that digital scale...I think we can safely trust that your weight isn't a guess!

That's 345 pounds with no gas. According to AW, the 1100 swingarm weighs 11.5 pounds more than a stock monolever. Manuel hasn't chopped the top off his engine either. What do you think, Spencer? Can we get a stock bike down to 330?

Not as light as a DRZ but hell a DRZ doesn't have a 1000cc high comp engine :D
