BMW R100RT Classic 1996 (The last one made)

Like if this guide is helpful

I have had mine from new(1996) and immediately fitted fork gaiters, I love it to bits.I have toured Europe and the UK without any problems (1 puncture...fixed with tyreweld).....have loaded her fully up for long trips...getting around 50mpg all the time.Paintwork and all other parts still all excellent...replaced collector box with keihan stainless after about 3 years.

Heated grips are okay...but don't use them that often as bike only gets fair weather use.

Replaced the original 'comfort' seat with a standard one as I found it too soft....also fitted extra tall  secdem screen to suit my height.

Regularly serviced running on macadam tyres....castrol gtx plugs....K & N washable air filter,regularly put redex in petrol...added slick 50 to engine after about 20,000 miles,

Pity they don't make them any more or I'd buy a new one !!!!
