No pannier frames for the r65 are the only one that will fit. the rack fits to the frames. If you have the r65LS then you will need to make brackets to move the rack back so you can still open the seat.

Which luggage bag is perfect for travel?

There is no such thing as perfect. Just buy a bag that fits your needs. Oh, make sure it is something you don't mind the airlines or carriers tearing to pieces.

Hi I have a digimate tv model modl lt321c2m1 and I am wondering if I can mount it on the wall. Can I?

Please look on the back, there should be 4 mounting holes (for Metric screws) Iin what is called VESA mounting pattern. Just measure the pattern.

When you buy the mounting bracket, it will come with a bag of Metric mounting screws to attach your TV to the bracket.

1983 R100 A project bike I took on

Oil filter is on the right (starboard) front lower side of the engine case behind a plate with three fasteners holding it on. Strongly recommend using OEM filter as replacement. Strongly suggest you get with someone who has an "airhead" BMW and have them mentor you with the filter change process. Doing it IS easy. Doing it wrong can ruin you engine in short order.

Start sequence? "Choke" on, bike in neutral, clutch in, engine cut off switch in run position, turn key and use throttle as needed to keep it running. Have fun - great bike. Go to for lots of info.

What is the difference between Suzuki part # 990A0-75002 and 990A0-75066? Both are luggage racks. I am looking for one for 06 C50.

It appears that the two racks just have slightly different designs by looking at the photos here and here. That still does not tell us which one is which though. Either will fit your 2006 C50, but it appears you must also have a backrest to mount the rack to.

Why are R65LS's "Collectible"?

The R65LS was designed by none other than Hans Muth, who designed the R100RS, the R100RT and, of all things, the Suzuki Katanas (the early ones). To my eye, the LS is an excellent example of early 80s motorcycle design. The red ones are especially tasty and unusual. I don't believe they ever sold in significant quantity either.
