Question Show me your R80 gs subframe , please...

My R80 gs subframe has been welded (poorly) by some PO, so i'd like to see how it should be as per OEM, around indicator mounts, etc.
If you have a clear shot of a clear sub frame, please post for reference.
thanks

If you are meaning a paralever then these may help. If it's a G/S then I don't know if they're the same.


Edit- photobucket is playing up. i'll try later.

Ahh, so you have an R80 "G/S", not a "GS". That forward slash is an important detail! The subframes are not the same, If you can wait till tonight, I can post some pics, but I'm sure another inmate will respond before then.

Mono G/s on the right and Basic subframe on the left. The Basic subframe fits the Paralever frame, is substantially beefier than the Mono one and obviously has the mounting points for the mudguards in a different place along with Paralever right hand side panel mounts (on the opposite side of the frame tube to the Mono one). The right downtube is also a different angle to clear the paralevers longer shock.



This is on a Basic so ignore the black spacer block for the g/s

Sorry to warm this up, but I just found out that the single seat rack I have does not fit the Basic subframe very well. I can see on the pictures above what the problem is. The cross member is in the way, this stops the seat from settling onto the subframe. It's being cantilevered from the cross member.

How can I get around this?



I think you can just see where. Btw, the seat cover has not yet been attached yet.

Can't help with that, but can you tell me if a standard R100GS double seat and tank will fit with the Basic subframe?

No it won't. The Basic subframe is the same overall size as the G/S frame, but uses a thicker tube. Also, as I've found out, it has the cross member in a different location. I will now either flatten the tuber on the rack or grind out a bit, so the seat is able to sit on the subframe, like it should.
