Just over 50,000 miles. It has a new clutch, timing chain and gears just a few thousand miles ago. (that is how it was advertised by the dealer)

Includes Krauser side cases. Paint is excellent. The only cosmetic flaws I see are a few stress cracks around the mirrors and a couple small dents in the right muffler. Tires are in great shape.
Runs great. Does leave a couple small spots of oil on the garage floor when left over night. I think it is the oil pan gasket and have a new gasket for it. Just don't have the time to install it.
The only thing I can think of that is wrong is the trip meter reset knob is gone.
Clean title
I purchased this bike a few months ago from a friend (blakebird) who purchased it from Gateway BMW in St Louis. The RS is iconic and I have always wanted to own one. However, I have the opportunity to buy another “must own someday” bike and selling this will help fund it.

I planned on keeping this one (new shop manual included!).

I decided to pare down. Selling the RS and later the R1200GS. Keeping the Ducati and ATK. I alsp have a lead on a R90S near you!

Thank you for the offer but I'm hoping to have it on the road before then. If not I'll be in touch.

Jim.

What's a "value" cover and where do I get one?

The valve cover or rocker cover center bolt is a stud, not a bolt. Better hardware store or just make one from a long bolt.

It still ain't a bolt, it's a stud. Is the stud in place and the chrome nut missing?

You can run without it, thing is largely vestigial.

It is a stud probably can still get one from a BMW dealer look at a parts fiche and find out the size and price, or make one from a longer bolt or rod. You will need a washer and nut too. Check to make sure your valve cover is not stripped out.

Valve covers can only strip on the side studs. The center stud is screwed into the head.

It would be the head that's stripped. Easily done considering the age of these bikes and how many times the covers (may) have been removed. A helicoil kit is needed then, and for the price of it you may just want to take it to a shop.
