1997 BMW R1100RT - Extensively Modded for Touring (Central MO)


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately the time has come to sell my lovely Amarena Red 1997 BMW R1100RT. I’m the second owner. I recently bought it as a replacement for my other bike, but due to some title issues, I can’t legally sell that one. Something has to go and the BMW drew the short straw.

Despite the age and high miles (122,395), the bike is in great shape. It runs and rides fantastic and has been obsessively maintained (I’ve got a binder full of records dating back to the 90s). I wouldn’t hesitate to take off on a cross-country trip tomorrow with it.

The list of modifications and new parts is extensive, but I’ll do my best to list them all.
- Full Öhlins adjustable suspension (rebuilt at 108k)
- Russell Day Long seats with backrest
- CVM Elf touring pegs
- Rox bar risers
- Air Wings
- Throttle lock
- BMW City Cases, top case, and tank bag
- Kathy’s Journey Designs top case bag
- Custom dash with Ram mount and map light
- Odyssey battery
- Signal Minder SM-5
- CTEK Comfort Indicator plug
- Battery Tender plug
- 2 Powerlet accessory plugs
- PIAA 910 driving lights
- PIAA 1100X fog lights
- Blue Sea Systems accessory fuse block
- Headlight & brake light modulator
- Aux LED brake lights
- Narva plug (maybe for trailer?)
- New Beemer Boneyard braided plug wires
- New Euro MotoElectrics ignition coil
- External fuel filter mod with quick-disconnect fuel lines, new Mahle fuel filter
- K&N air filter
- Black stainless braided brake lines
- R1150 17” rear wheel conversion
- Newer Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires
- BMR top case rack
- New HES at 115k
- New clutch set at 108k

- New starter at 121k
- New intake manifold boots
- Comes with original rear wheel, GS-911 diagnostic tool & adapter, extra oil filter, Haynes manual, Clymer manual, and a custom locking rack that goes in place of the rear seat.

Feel free to ask any questions. I’ll do my best to answer them. Clean title in my name. Located in Glasgow, MO. $2500.
