I take it you've never held a migsel stand?!? The two stands in question are made from different materials....one looks like some kind of steel and migsels are stainless.

No, I have never owned one but I did look into a Migsel stand when I was looking for a replacement for the oem. Everything on that stand looks beefy and strong except the foot to leg weld. If they went to all the trouble to make the frame mount so big you would think that they would put a gusset between the leg and foot, where most stands break. I passed on buying because I didn't want to have to weld the foot back on down the road, which was the problem with my original. If it works for you, great, but it wasn't what I was looking for. I wish that R-Dubb had posted the picture of his stand earlier then I would have tried to sweet talk him into making me one.

I still have my PD, although its recently lunched something in the engine. I've yet to look into what but it makes a nice change from output shaft bearings.

I did this with it,

Second owner (for about 20 years) and it was purchased new in Alaska. I have the original PD Tank and side covers (removed and stored), luggage, dual and solo seat. A few minor modifications including Works shock, Acerbis tank, beefed up fork springs, Jesse Bags, flyingtpot.com side stand (awesome) and some other miscellaneous stuff.

Countless awesome (solo) trips throughout the mountains and deserts of the Western U.S. and many more to come.

WANTED: Good ideas on front brake calipers and rotor (even if it is just an oversized rotor option). I can't seem to find any options available on the market (these days).

This will solve your problem:

I've done business with Mat, the owner, for a few years. He built me a new R80G/S block about 60,000 miles ago. Shipped it to Canada in a big box filled with expanding foam. It took me hours to cut the plastic-wrapped engine out of its enclosure :-)

that rotor does help out some I did like how it helped, but if you don't notice your forks twisting while braking you will with that one!! Another concern what are you gonna do to get a replacement rotor!!! It also looks fragile as the rotor carrier is of a very small diameter...wonder if it's more prone to damage.

Link on it. (here)

I have the MAP Engineering equivalent on mine and I can tell you it works like a charm. Two finger braking, even loaded up for world travel. No fork warping that I can see

The MAP Engineering ones are NLA. Have been since about 2006. I begged and pleaded to get a new disc and got one, but I think I was the last one. I bought the bike in 2000 with the MAP disc on it. I have the old disc and may try to source what was used. I asked MAP but he didn't respond.

I bought it last summer not in bad shape, white small tank bike with a black dual saddle and a black solo saddle/rack combo. The one goofy thing this bike has is an R100GS oil cooler on the crashbar. The gentleman I bought it from claimed that he bought the bike from the original owner and it came from BMW that way.

Interesting... you couldn't get a crash bar with the oil cooler mounting points until the '87 R100GS came out, and the cooler is an R100Gs part.

Your G/S could have sat around the showroom for a year or so and had the later crash bar and cooler fitted by the dealer.

Its the one from Boxxerparts. Ive never used the original brake as I purchased the bike not running. This kit just bolted on and feel really nice.

HE35 KBA61189 is on the spacer. Looks to be the same as the one from Boxer supplies.com
