    78 R100S handlebar identification?

    I'm looking at purchasing some spare cables for my 78 R100S- how can I identify which handlebars I have to know which cables to get? Thanks!

    Do you have cables that currently work out OK, with no serious kinks or pulling when you turn the handlebars? If so, then just measure the length and report that information when you purchase new cables. This page shows 1027mm cables for an R100S:

    If yours measure about that, then that's what you need. You can use just about any other cable (within reason) from another model. For example, the stock R100/7 lists both 1096 and 1108mm cables...if you needed something longer.
