'95 R1100R

A buddy of mine has a '95 R1100R sitting in his mother-in-law's garage, and she's moving, so it needs to go somewhere.

I looked at picking it up, but it hasn't run in at least 3 years. Step-dad bought it to fix up, tore it apart, then passed away.

It looks reasonably complete, but I did notice they'd pulled all the brake lines off the ABS unit. I don't know if he thought the unit was bad, or if he just started taking everything apart . . .

82K miles, but the DMV tags are June 2010, so there's that added expense as well . . .

So what might that bike be worth in complete, running condition? I'm thinking around $2,000, but there aren't many comparables out there.

Are there places that rebuild those older ABS units if needed? There's no way it justifies the cost of a new part, even if I could find one.

Anything else to look out for on this model?

Or any good Oilhead forums to look at?

Thanks for any help.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re-psycle (Lithopolis, Ohio) is a shop dedicated to older (1955-2005) BMWs. They stock parts, do routine maintenance, complete rebuilds and restorations. They also buy and sell BMW bikes. They should be able to advise you or assist with any aspect of what needs to be done.

Re: '95 R1100R

Things you'll want to consider replacing:

Hall Effect sensor - or at least replace the wiring
All rubber brake lines
All internal fuel hoses - in the tank


Check

Clutch thickness - a new disk will require a completely new clutch pack. They updated the clutch and the older disk compatible with the old assembly is no longer available.

Gaskets around throttle bodies for cracks.

Injectors for a good spray pattern.

Throttle cable - is it binding? There is a newer version for that year. It may have a single throttle cable vs. a two piece.

Gold shimmer in the gear box oil may mean the shift forks are worn and a rebuild is in order. Some M94 boxes were good and others not so good.

The single rear engine seal is prone to weeping with age. Check it when you pull the box to examine the clutch and grease the splines.

The ABS unit may be fine. Fill it and flush it after you replace the old brake lines. It will probably be fine. They are rebuild able.

It is a manual clutch - check the cable and the free play.

Have fun with it.

Cheers.

Re: '95 R1100R

Well I bought my 1996 R1100R for 2k with 45k miles on it in running condition, but with that one in pieces and out of registration 1k sounds like a good deal to me. You could spend a good chunk of change just getting the ABS pump working. Not to mention any of the other work that has been mentioned on the other post.

Re: '95 R1100R

Thanks for all the info.

I may pick it up as a project bike, but I'm not sure if I have the time or space for another project right now.

Still, I hate to see a decent bike go to waste . . .
