mine has 32mm bings. I think my /7 also has them. seat of the pants dyno has the r100r quicker off the line, but runs out of steam while the /7 runs stronger near the top. I DO know the /7 motor is smoother than my r100r motor. personnally, I like the older motors with the heavy flywheels.

This is correct. My 1992 is a UK model with 40's and the Euro switch gear were I can turn the head light on and off. Those are the only 2 differences that I am aware off... It was a lucky find, thank you for the GI that bought the bike in England and brought it back to the States. Thank you, thank you. I hope to never have to sell it.

I guess I am one of the new guys with R100R which was just picked up today.

Everything is there and it needs a bath indeed since the PO believe in washing a bike will increase the rusting process.

Fuel lines are a mess now, and second part of the frame was painted in black. Other than that, PO stated he can ride this bike all the way from MA to CA without an issue.

Nice bike. What year and what was the mileage on it? I hate to pry but how much did you pay for it?

It's a 92 with 47K miles on it, and you don't want to know how much I paid.

Now I'm the new guy with a R100R!!

I pick mine up tomorrow and I'm pumped. 60,000 kilometers(37,000 miles), $4,500 bucks. How come some 92's I've seen have dual front disk brakes and mine only has 1? I have to go 100 kilometers to pick it up, so I get a nice drive just to come home.

Wish I knew how to show you a picture....http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzUwWDEwMD...rLw~~48_20.JPG

The Motorcycling Gods know you're just gonna cafe it anyway. You're lucky you got any brakes.

looks pretty unmolested---even the emissions crap is still there...but I don't know that model well...is that the stock dash? Did you get bags with it?

You are going to have many many happy miles(km) in this lovely machine.

I had chances to put some miles on mine 92'. Only thing I wish is it has a steering damper.

Does anybody have any luck of finding or using any kind of steering devices on a 92 later R100?

Out of curiosity, what's it doing that makes you wish for a damper?

In 1992 the R100R came only with one front disc from the factory. In 1993 they started with 2 front disc. They do have a "retro-fit" kit for the 92 year to add a second front disc. Truth be told, most people added the second disc. Hope that helps.

Another new guy - another recently purchased R100R.

1992
18,000 miles

First BMW - I'd been looking for a while. Is there a company that makes an aftermarket passenger backrest? What about bike specific tail bags?

Thanks! Looking forward to spending the summer riding..

I ended up getting a Corbin with the backrest for the passenger or driver if you want. You can keep an eye out for a used one the same model is used on the R100GS.

Picked up the 1992 R100R last night, got to drive it about 100 miles home. A little shaky at first getting used to the turn signals and slow turns, but I feel much more confident now. I did get beautiful side hard cases with it and a slightly higher cafe style fairing as well as the original. A couple of times I've had problems getting out of neutral into first. I would release the clutch, roll the bike slightly and then I can hit first easily. Is this something common or a sign of big problems? It just purred on the highway, I think it's such a beautiful bike. It's so clean and flawless, hard to believe it's over 20 years old. It's totally original, the first thing my buddy says is to cut the fuel lines and put in a fuel filter, I want to keep it stock.

I think it's the stock dash, but the previous owner added a classy clock between the tach and speedometer.
