  1. I want a rear cowl/trunk for my '97 R850R. Concept attached.

    I mocked up a bad photoshop of a rear cowl on my R850R. I REALLY want something like this, ideally a trunk. Corbin makes a Smuggler for other models but one does not appear to exist for this model....
  2. R1100 GS in the Seattle/Everett area? I would like to see something pillion-related.

    I've got a 1997 R850R and I'm thinking of replacing the rear seat with a rack or box of some sort. I've been looking into the 1100RTP police radio box, but that's not quite what I'm thinking of. I'd...

    I'm a bit slow, but I'd like to apologize to those who are offended by my description of the stock '97 gauges. These are my own opinions and I embrace diversity. If you love the original setup,...

    Thanks, mateys.
  6. Something stopping me from adjusting the valves...

    So........ I got this bike (1997 R850R, matey) a couple of weeks ago and am going through all the tune-up stuff just to get a baseline for maintenance. I took one valve cover off all ready to adjust...

    Ok, new info. I changed the transmission oil and rear drive oil. This seems to help, and I have been paying attention to my technique. I previously rode a 1976 CB550, waaaaaaaaay different bike. I...

    Shifting issues = check. I was riding 2-up with my wife for the first time yesterday and had difficulty getting into 2nd. It kept getting to N, the light would go off then right back on and not get...

    Oh - Bike is 1997 R850R, matey. Dolphin blue, land-lubbers. (I feel like a pirate saying the name of this bike)

    Hello! I just got a 1997 R850R (Arrrrrrr!) with 19,500 miles. It had sat basically unused for about 7 years :O ! The PO had a professional flush the fuel system a couple times in that timeframe, now...
