    Similar issues with Bonneville (T100)

    My 1991 GS can be quite stubborn to start when the temps are low .... it doesn't even have to be below freezing, but she has always started. OTOH, I owned a lovely 2003 Triumph T100 for several...

    I've had similar thoughts, ie, having snaps installed in the base plate with matching snaps installed in the bottom of the tank bag. Or having some steel plates placed in the bottom of the tank bag...
  3. Zipper incompability - 1991 R100GS baseplate and Multivario bag

    A few years ago, I was fortunate to find a new-old-stock (NOS) MultiVario tank bag to replace the 20 year old one I'd ridden with forever. My old tank bag is badly faded, and the bag's zippers are...

  5. Replacing rotor - have question about adding diode as backup to exciter circuit

    I ran the first two tests Rick (Motorrad Elektrik) provided me a few years ago, and it is obvious the rotor on my R100GS is shot, so it'll be replaced. I always first suspect the 'gen' lamp, since...

    The best cleaner for R100GS alloy rims

    My bike is now 22 years old. The wheels are original, and clean up fairly nicely at the beginning of each riding season using a cotton wadding product soaked in some sort of cleaner. It removes...

  9. Looking for model number of largest Yuasa AGM Battery .....

    ..... that'll fit in the OEM battery box on my 1991 R100GS. Since the stock alternator is rated at 280W at ?? rpm, I'd like to have the added assurance of a larger electrical 'bank account.' ...

    Guenther, I hope I've used a word that is in common usage. I've heard it used in reference to the steering oscillating from left to right without rider input. As in steering head shake.
  11. Thanks for all the replies -

    For starters - no - the R100GS doesn't come equipped with a steering damper. I'm probably trying to mask a problem with one.

    - June 2000: At 70,000 miles, a truck driver decided to back up after...
  12. Is there an inexpensive steering damper for the R100GS?

    I've ridden my 91 model since she came out of the crate in March of 1991. Still looks presentable, has recently had a top end overhaul. Mileage is slightly over 131,000 miles. The front end worrys...

    I don't think that will work on the GS because of the additional height and waaaay forward location of the side stand, but I appreciate the suggestion. My dealer showed me his approach a while back,...

    I will continue to ride my R100GS!

    Maybe I'm losing a bit of lower body flexibility at 67 years old, but I will continue to put miles on my R100GS I've owned since 1991. The biggest issue isn't the height of the bike. It is light...

    Thanks for all the good info. This may not take place early this season, since there's another bike in line waiting to have a few $$ thrown at it. But it'll happen .... she's seeping like an old...

    It's a difficult choice

    I'd been thru a lovely 1985 K100RS, my first K, followed by a K75S in 1988. Kept the 100, traded the 75, then bought another K100RS with ABS in 1989. The flopped over fours were quirky, but I dearly...

    Airhead ignition - lost spark or not?

    Quick question. Do the airhead ignition systems use the 'wasted spark' system, or does a spark plug only fire during compression/power stroke? Purely academic, since I was asked this question by...
  19. Replacing push rod seals & cylinder base gaskets

    Just curious about whether it would be possible to replace (a) the pushrod seals, and/or (b) the cylinder base gaskets without totally pulling the cylinders, ie, leaving pistons in the bores and only...

    Back several years ago, I was riding my first Beemer, a 1985 K100RS. I'd just finished reading a few books on road riding, and thought I knew all there was to know. As I headed toward a very sharp...

    Guys, thanks for all the comments. Anton, that is an interesting (somewhat scary) Javascript working pix of a valve in a bad valve guide. Re any 'clanks', hard to tell with this engine .... it was...

    Borrowed time on valve train?

    My 1991 R100GS recently turned 123,000 miles. I've done some preventative maintenance (rebuilt carbs, replaced cam timing chain and tensioner, replaced front and rear tranny bearings 20k ago (but...

    Just took off on a whim

    I hadn't ridden from Hudson Ohio out west for 3 years., the last time on one of the new Triumph Bonnevilles. This time was a solo ride on my 1991 R100GS along the northern route, via lower Michigan...
  24. I found this thread browsing for "R100GS Sidestand"

    I contacted Bill a few years ago to get some specifics about his side stand. I determined that it simply provided a detent of sorts (or went past the position where the spring could pull the stand...

    R100GS - an easier way to get off

    OK ..... I want to continue riding my 1991 R100GS. However, I'm getting a few more miles on me, as well as the bike, and would like an easier way to exit the bike. As is, I am too short to deploy...
