    My then-55k-mile R12GS lost both the driveshaft AND the final drive in one go; it got a then-11k-RT final drive and nused GS driveshaft. Now at 70k on the bike; I won't worry about these parts again...

    Glad to see this thread pop up, some good solutions here.

    We (me & my trusted mechanic) put a 195/45R17 on my stock rear K1200RS wheel. It was a real bear to get on, but it seated perfectly fine...

    Seat belt in the sidecar; its use is mandatory for anybody under 18 as far as I'm concerned. My wife uses it every time she rides.

    I think a good old-fashioned Steib would look great with the R12R Classic. So would a Watsonian.

    You may be able to relocate the brake line (& other wires) to the near side of the fork tube (rather than the far side, from where you sit). Try that.
