R100/7 Shock Eye Diameter

Hi,

Can anyone tell me the diameter of the bolt holes / eyes on the shocks for a BMW R100RS 1983 please.
Some shocks I looked at claiming to be for the bike were 14mm, but my bikes bolts look about 12mm at most.

Thanks

There should be a "bush" #4 between the stud and the bushing. NLA from BMW, maybe it's in your current shock?

The bolts used to fit the shocks are 10mm.
Same for the stud on the final drive, the #4 bushing is a spacer between the eye of the shock and the housing (from memory).

Aftermarket shocks come with a variety of eyes, 10, 12 or 14 mm, spacers may be needed to reduce them to 10mm.

Paul.
