SOURCE: need to install GPS on BMW 1150 GS...have no manual...how, please

Check your owners manual for location of your fuse box. You will probably find connections for accessories. If not make sure you use an inline fuse on the positive connection and then ground to the frame.....Good Luck and Nice Bike!

What repairs can be anticipated on a bmw r1150rs motorcycle with 85k miles?

85k is nothing for these engines, it the rest of the cycle parts that may have issues:
Check the clutch does not slip.
check the gearbox selects all gears. A little whine is ok,, but no jumping out of gear etc
check around the final drive,, shaft tunnel up to the back of the gearbox for oil leaks.
a good test ride is essential, and I would recommend joining one of the numerous BMW forums for more help. Ignore the other answer.

I would like to fit a 6 gears BMW 1150rt gearbox on my 1100rt. Do you think it is possible ? That involve the gear indicator replacement as well i suppose. Thanks in advance for your advices. Gerard

No, I don't think it would be possible. the engine casings are different as well as the transmission housings.

The gear indicator is via a switch or pot on the transmission depending on year etc.

You would be money ahead to sell your 1100RT and upgrade to an 1150 or better still a 1200RT. There are lots of 1150RT's on the used market for sale at reasonable prices.

Good Luck!

Trunk for 1150 RT

I have the standard trunk (supplied by BMW for 1150RT for a hefty price). Nice thing about it is that it fits nicely, has a backrest for the passenger and is very stable and strong. The poor thing about it is that it still will not fit a helmet. I suggest you also look at the GIVI trunk. I don't know how it will fit to the 1150RT, but I do know they look nice, are well made and large enough to accomodate a lot more thant the BMW trunk. By the way, how do you like your 1150? I love mine. If only I had more time to ride it.
