Hello guys, girls.
I am about to make a move on a 1994 R1100RSL in white color. The bike has 86K on it, apparently its had its clutch and tranny replaced about 15K miles ago. Im a high mileage rider, so id be putting on about 2000 miles a month or so. He says it has typical wear, some knicks and scratches, lost paint in spots, rusty bolts. Seems to be typical BMW style, as my F800ST with 83K was chipping paint on the engine, had rusty bolts, all of that.
Ive heard the bike is pretty sweet. Then others say its bad due to the gear box going.
The previous owner had it since 96 i think he said. Hes a mechanic so he did all the work himself, except for the clutch and gearbox replacement. He said the splines looked good and were lubed to spec 15k ago when all that was replaced.
Im hoping the bike will take me another 80K or better, without any serious issues.
Anyone have anything to say about this bike, or any pointers when i go and look at it?
I spoke to some previous owners of the same type of bike who really liked it. They told me to rag the engine in every gear, really get on the gas to see if it slips from gear.
The owner said it has come out of gear from time to time, but blames it on weak gear shifts.
Thanks in advance guys.
