You want wild or mild? How much you want to spend?

There is not a lot of choices for the 85-95 models that are under $1000. You could run any 70-80 /5, /6 or /7 exhaust but you will need to change the center stand as well to a 81-84 R100 or R80.

I've got Keihin /6 styles on my Monoshock and they are killer. Didn't have to change anything.

But they are not sporty. They look like an early muffler on a late bike, not that it's a bad thing.

Jon,

You're bike is awesome. If I had one critisism it would be the front Mudguard. Flatracer do a really nice shortie mudguard that would look great on your bike. http://flatracer.com/#/bmw-mudguards/4553655937

This fender?













I am a big fan of Flatracer's products and have his tank and front brace in stock for another project. He makes the best quality products I have seen - the fiberglass work is impeccable.

However, I am happy with the front fender on this R90S. I cut it down to this size in order to fit it closer to the 18" front wheel.

I never get tired of looking at this bike!

I'll second the Flatracer quality observations.

I have one of the 3/4 Sport seats and it is better qulaity than BMW. Awesome bit of Fiberglass.

I knew I should have kept my mouth shut about the front mudguard...

Hey, Rob, no worries! Everyone has their own tastes.

If you ask them, they can furnish free flow models for the same look and price.

Wow, that orange bike is just un-fucking-believable! For myself, I generally am not too wound up over having my bike totally detailed out like that, but sometimes seeing one like that makes me want to do one up proper. Are those rims Borannis? They look just like the ones on my 850 T3 that I'm starting on. Whose bike is that? I'm going to go back to look at that bike again now.
