R100RS fairing onto an R80RT?

Hi Folks!

I've just scored my 7th Airhead and stumbled upon this great forum... thanks for having me!

My new old bike is an '85 R80RT and a friend wants to sell me a fairing system from a late 80's R100RS - complete with all mounting hardware, lights, morrors & windshield. I'm thinking how nice it would be to have a Summer / Winter bike and am curious if anyone knows if the frames of these two bikes are similar enough to easily eanble this transformation. I see on a microfiche that the lowers on the RS & RT are the same part number but the mounting frames for the R80 & R100 RT's are different part numbers. Help me Mr Wizard! Thanks.

To Life!

Hi Capt., I didn't get to see it done but I had an '83 R80RT that had an RS fairing installed on it, so it'll work, you couldn't tell it wasn't an RS. And a great fairing it is too, maybe one of the best ever. It was designed by Hans Muth who also designed the R90S, the R65LS, and the original Suzuki Katana.


I think you'll have to change to the RS bars also for clearance.
