R80GS instrument cluster. Would it fit on R100GS

Hello,

I have a 1992 R100GS project bike. Would a R80GS instrument cluster fit? I have removed all the R100GS fairing, windshield and instrument gauges that are incorporated into the R100GS fairing.

Is there any other options for a instrument cluster set up.

Does anybody know of where I could find a R80GS cluster. I have looked for a while on ebay with no luck.

Thank you

Ditch the stock stuff & just get a Trailtech vapour or vector or if you wanted to spend more money get an acewell unit.

Yes, you could go back to the 88-89 R100GS set up. But be aware that you'd need to modify or replaced the wiring loom to do so (the 91+ loom is longer in that area).

Moorespeed has a instrument set up that actually works on airheads as supplied , comes with fitting instructions, and is serviceable, with good spare parts availability, should they ever be needed. You will still need a headlamp / faring set up, but they are not hard to find as long as you dont mind ugly/costly, Boxxerparts and BMWBOXERSUPPLIES? have them.

Thank you all for the reply.

Does anybody know of any early 88-89 GS instrument and headlight assembly's that are available.

Another ADV member sent me a link to one on ebay but its over
640U.S$ for a old sun faded part.

too expensive .....

thanks again.

The early GS headlight/gauges were the same as the R80G/S, but with one difference - speedo ratio. The G/S normally came with a 3.36 final drive and the 100GS came with a 3.09.
