What Is This Small Tapped Hole on the RT Forks?


Recommended Posts



Following up to my fog light mounting dilemma, I noticed a small, tapped hole on each fork leg. What is the purpose of this hole? If there is none, I can enlarge it and use to mount lights, without disturbing my brake calipers. Any ideas?

i think bmw used the same forks for the 1100rt and 1150rt, so that hole is for the front fender on the 1100rt. the 1150 has a smaller front fender so it doesnt attach there.

You're right on the money Kyle. Thats exactly where the lower part of my fender attaches on my R1100RT. thumbsup.gif

So then I guess it wouldn't be out of the question to swap a R1100RT fender over to the R1150RT fender, and free up a very convenient set of mounting holes?
