Yes and no, apparently a R80GS pan is the same as a R100GS pan according to the fiche. These pans had no place for the oil to drain. This can be addressed with a simple hole.

The biggest downside is that the hole can grab rocks....however I have never had this issue with my KLR.

Hope this helps.

It does fit both, I have a GS and a G/S and have used the same bash plate on the two of them.

Was working on a few things last night - needed to re-fasten my right header pipe after it chunked in the middle of a drive.

Was a good time to hit both sides with fresh copper anti-seize and get a straight shot at rear engine mount nut after Flying Tpot side stand install.

Thing is - I'm knocking the underbelly around pretty good and the two of us are early on in the relationship.

Headers are getting torn up, about sheered two of the oem guard fasteners and generally unethusiastic about the long term prospects for current set up.

So I'm searching for a better bash plate.

Seen a few things but wondering if I'm missing a good choice:

I have the TT version on my G/S, and did have to cut it up a bit to make it fit.... also cut a notch to drain the oil when the plate is on.

The TT piece is really nice!!!! much nicer than the stock BMW one.

Twin Headlight Ernie also makes a skid plate right?

Are the TT fasteners recessed?

Twin Headlight Ernie looks nice - says it R100 but ok on R80?

Short answer....no. I had a HE bash plate, but the head pipes on the R80 are wider than the R100.....well the collector outlet is wider than on an R100. I had to space the bash plate out about 2"! and I didn't really trust that the spacers would hold up to an impact. The one shown that Bgood has is the same one I have. It's heavy, but shit, the weight is low and there isn't a ding on it. My head pipes are intact because of the steel bash plate. make one. If you need help, us Atlanta folk love to cut and weld custom crap.

Jenna,
Contrary to what happened on yours, my twin headlight ernie bash plate fit just fine on my bike. Maybe your holes weren't located right or something? Mine used the ~1cm spacers that ernie included, and while it was very close the headers, it didn't make contact.

You're welcome to come by and we can make you one. It'll take about $20 worth of steel and 2 hours or so. These little MIG welders are super simple. You can weld it yourself or I'll do it. The steel costs about 2 more pounds but it's worth it to me at least for the piece of mind.

I've got Spring Break next week and I'll be turning wrenches most of the time to get my bike straightened out. Send me a PM if you want to drop by. I'm on the NW side right where 285 hits 75.

Here is a replica of the BMW original on UK ebay. I can see it is not quite they same, the mounting bolts set up is different but still looks good and I know the original works well.

From what I can remember, I contacted you about this problem and you told me that you had R100 head pipes on your bike. I can't find a pic of my bashplate mounted.

No they were stock ST headers. I had a R100GS sump.

Ah ha! Maybe that was the difference

Hey, do you know if you have the only ever HPN R80ST?
