1987 BMW R 100 RT


Probably the best, most reliable touring bike ever made


Shaft drive oil drain bolt stripped thread. M12 x 1.5.

Bevel drive oil level bolt stripped thread. M8 x 1.00.

Speedo cable broke.

General Comments:

Easily cruises all day long at 70 mph.

You must change the engine oil every 4000 miles using 20w50 SG oil and a genuine BMW filter.

Gearbox, shaft drive and bevel drive oil must be done at the same time using 80w90 Castrol EPX GL5.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
