If the rumors are true that the R100GS starter is a Valeo D6RA, then you can find it listed at the link below for $245.00, use the "search" function for D6RA... better than Max's listed price of $369

and quite cheap in europe as its a car starter for CitroŽn ZX, AX, Peugeot 205 etc. Valeo made them cheap when they sold without Peugeot or CitroŽn label

Just call mark at repsycle in Lithopoulis, Ohio.
he even purchased eurotek's inventory when they went under- he supplied my shop with better pricing and availability than NA ever could.

Signal flasher

MODS: I didn't see this on here but please delete if redundant.

The following taken from a posts by "the quiner", "Ken from Oklahoma", and "Randy R100/7-84RS" on boxerworks.com:

As a reminder, the pricey OEM turn signal flasher on the old airheads like my /7 can be swapped out for a "Tridon Stant" 12 volt 3 terminal #550 thermal flasher available for under $5 from any auto parts store.

The new flasher will have a "P" an "L" and an "X"...you want to plug the wires from the new socket into the existing flasher socket...match the "P" to the black/white wire (your dash light indicator)...match the "L" to the green/yellow wire (the "load"...i.e. the turn signals)...and, the "X" to the green/black wire (+12V supply). The fourth prong (that the new flasher won't have) is brown...for ground...the new flasher doesn't need a ground.


Thanks guys, I did this on my R80 last night and it works perfectly. I rigged up very short pig tails with male spades on one end and female on the other to patch the Tridon into the OEM connector and then zip tied it to the OEM bracket in the headlight bucket. Flashes the signals correctly AND works the dash light. So simple and cheap, makes you wonder what BMW was thinking .

Wholesale batteries no longer includes shipping in their price of $67.98 for the Panasonic LC-X1228P, which brings the total to over $75. Still, $7 for shipping a 25 lb battery isn't a bad deal, just nowhere near as satisfying as free shipping.

BTW, those expensive solid state flashers were the result of government regulations. Go figure. They stipulated that the signals had to flash at an exact rate no matter what and then at a different rate when a bulb was out. And if you expect something simple from the guys who invented CooCoo clocks you must be dreaming!

So I just went back to wholesalebatteries.com and their price is now $87.98. What's going on here? I though batteries were going down in price, not up??? Way up!

Terry.. same exact thing happened when i bought from them. It's like they immediately became aware that they were offering the lowest deal around and said "hey... hike up the price!!!!!"

I think they realized they hadn't updated their online prices - since everyone else had. And, man oh man, it didn't take them more than five minutes to correct that mistake!

Question Rear Brake Rotor '82 R100RS

Ok, I thought this would be easy to source, and now I can't find it.
I'm looking for a nice, cheap, new rear brake rotor for my R100RS. I've tried finding a used one on IBMWR but haven't had any luck. And a new SS one is $210 which just ain't worth it to me. I'd be happy with good old iron - I don't care if it rusts I just want good and cheap.

I know, I should buy a KLR, but I ain't that cheap.

brake pads

Can someone rec'd where to buy replacement brake pads for my 89 r100gs? The front brake is so squeaky I can't stand it, and I have been told it is from the original bmw pads.

go for the green galfer pads. the best for stock set-ups, IMO. just do a google on it. i may be wrong but a site that's selling those is www.cyclebrakes.com.

Somewhere I saw a substitution for a front brake switch made by Bosch, but I can't find the post.

Has anyone else have a recollection?
