1996 R1100R ABS
Dayton, OH 45410
(Or Best Offer)
103,XXX miles on the clock (equates to about 93,000 actual miles), silver color, ABS, spoke wheels, system cases, luggage rack, factory windshield, center stand. Loved and well cared for by its owner. No heated grips, cruise, nor trip computer – it’s a pretty basic ‘90s Oilhead. Great running bike and I would still take it cross country – It was my cross-continent cruiser until I upgraded last year.
Customizations installed on the bike: Corbin saddle and one backrest, Plastic engine guards, OEM wind deflectors for the hands, PIAA 1100 running lights, Run-n-lites taillights, Centech AP-2 aux fuse panel, RAM mount ball, USB power outlet.
Newer stuff done to the bike: New battery in 2013, ABS rebuilt in 2014, clutch and all possible associated parts replaced in 2014, Speigler brake lines, pads and speed bleeders in 2014, Hyperpro shocks front and rear in 2015. New cables (clutch, throttle and choke), alternator belt and steering head bearing in 2016. I’ve swapped out a lot of the corroded fasteners and cracked rubber parts over the years. Avon Storm 3D X-M tires; front is new.
Strip it down for a clean looking roadster - or - luggage and wind protection for the long hual - or - put some knobies and skid plate on and turn it into a sweet little scrambler.
Comes with cover, tank bag, and Airhawk seat.
Full disclosure on the negatives: It has the low rev stutter like all these oilheads, and a fraction-of-a-second power hiccup if you get on the throttle in low RPMs – can easily be avoided by keeping the RPMs up. Head gaskets have started to leak very slowly but has not been an issue for me; I had to add about a pint of oil during between oil changes. Of course there are normal wear and tear scuffs and scratches. Head covers scuffed/scratched from going down at low or no speed mishaps.
