If you want the 2nd gen one I have, sure. Dunno what the difference is between that and 3rd gen, but I think it's minor. The big change was 1st to 2nd.

Sort of like the input shafts I guess. Yours is the late clutch spline but with the early fluting that needs the 519 gear.

It was either bust ass Thursday night or go to work on Friday......hum.....work or ride????

Found some nice roads, that is until we caught up to the road grater, which put a nice "fluff" on the gravel, made it nice and soft. Now I don't mind the rear wheel spinning up hill, but the curves and downhills were giving me fits.
Installed the Race Tech stiffer springs, which helped the front end some.

I've signed up for the BMW performance class in July, R1200, oh baby, or should I say Barbie (couldn't resist).

Larger KTM footpegs made to fit.

A while back I was out ridding w/ the stock foot pegs and rubber inserts which become slippery when wet. So I removed the rubber and at least the pegs were grippy. The stock ones are quite narrow so I wanted to see what larger ones would be like, plus not wanting to spend a lot of money on pricey aftermarket ones. So to the garage w/ a cutoff tool, welder and some scrap metal.........



The top foot peg is the stock one, the lower is from a 1996 KTM 300MXC (aka POS) I once had. The swivel mount was too wide so it was cut off.

A new mount was made out of scrap flat stock



The metal was relieved to make 90 degree bends then welded up.



Holes were drilled into the new mount, sorry no pictures, then the KTM platform was situated to be close to the original footpeg location. Then tack welded in place, adjusted then welded completely.

OEM Sump Gaurd, and Twin Headlight Earnie's Center Stand Guard

Newest addition to the G/S- Sump and center stand guards. I tried to get the OEM BMW center stand guard, but they were NLA, so The other option was the Twin Headlight Earnie one, which looks better and mounts better than the OEM, but the Earnies' sump guard was not a design I liked, the rigid attachment to the sump was unacceptable. I decided against it after seeing Hardware Girl's on the ST.

I purchased the sump guard, bolts, rubber spacers and washers from Chicago BMW and as luck would have it there were none in the USA, but there was ONE left in Germany. YEAH THAT'S RIGHT ONE.....ONE ...ONE, WHICH MEANS THAT THERE WILL BE NO MORE OEM ONES EVER!!!! I don't think they will be making any more ever again.



A shot of the 22mm headed bolts (note the shank on the bolt), rubber spacers, and flat washers which mount between the rubber and sump.



Another shot of how the mounts are assembled.



Another view of the guard.



A comparison shot between the little bitty stock guard, note the cooling vents, sure wish the big on had these!!



and it mounted, yes the guard is really close to the exhaust pipe, so close I had to loosen the exhaust clamp and fined nut and move the pipe a little to clear the guard.



A nice neat fit to the Twin headlight Earnie center stand guard.

BTW, no pictures here as I was in a hurry, but my front brake was a little soft so, since I had the caliper and master cylinder kits on hand, I rebuilt them a cople of days ago. Lots better pressure at the lever.

Pretty easy to do, just needed snap ring pliers to get the piston out of the MC, then for the calipers, compressed air to push out the pistons, (keep your fingers clear), a small pick to snag the piston seals. then just clean the parts well. The mastercylinde and calipers bores were in good shape so the master cylinder bore was lightly sanded and cleaned again, then seals and bores lubed with brake fluid upon assembly.

It's the wrong sump. That skid plate matches the smooth-bottom sump, not the early GS and /5 sump.

The smooth sump is slightly deeper: http://www.largiader.com/tech/oilpan/

The Guard is #71-60-2-315-345, pictured on the R80G/S fiche. It also looks to fit the same as what Tom has on his G/S

My mistake - I thought it was the GS plate, not the G/S plate. But if you run across a smooth-bottom sump (and matching pickup assembly) it might give you a bit more clearance. I'll measure the critical dimensions at some point.

Take care of it, you might have a collector's item!

Are you saying G/S and GS skid plates are different? I always thought it was the same plate. I picked up a used one and it seems to fit fine. I was told it came off a GS by salvage dealer.

I thought they were the same as well. Looking at the fiche shows different part numbers. The G/S is now showing NLA. The GS is still purchasable. I thought the engine blocks were exactly the same? Is it that the GS has the crossover tube and therefore the PD skid plate is different?

If I see a GS and/or GSPD at the European Rally this weekend I'll take some picts....as I'm curious now.

According to the BMW fiche-sump guard #'s

88-90 R100GSPD p/n 51-47-2-315-392
88-90 R100GS p/n 71-60-2-315-345
88-92 R80GS p/n 71-60-2-315-345
