    Gorgeous. As I think the R100 is the best airhead I've had and the RS is the only other one I would have, you can park it in my garage if need be. Just leave the keys in case I need to move it.

    My '84 R100 was sold as a CS (I was the second owner). It had CS on the original sales documents; I don't remember if it was on the title. It was not a CS according to the VIN.

    I had a '06 FZ1 do the same thing. You'll need to rebuild or replace the master cylinder. Good excuse to install a handlebar mounted MC, if you're into that sort of thing.

    The R90S ran great with Yamalube 10w-50 semi-synthetic. The only reason it has something else now is that my riding buddy left his position as the parts dept. manager at a big four motorcycle dealer.

    I had a '76 R75/6 and an '84 R100 in addition to the R90S I have now. The R100 was the best rider of the lot. Better brakes and smoother power.

    And apparently the ring nicked the tube. 10 lbs psi loss per 24h means I'll have to do it again. I'll try the front wheel off method this time.
