    Question Parts interchangeable?

    I'm wondering if parts such as a headlight ring, or the headlight brace & turnsignal holder from a R65 are interchangeable with a R80 or R100. I'm trying to replace a few dinged and dented parts on my '84 R65 and figure it might be easier to get what I need if I don't have to ask for parts from a R65 ONLY. I know there were a lot more R100's (and probably R80's, too) made than R65s, so maybe I need to go about this differently. If anyone knows something about this, I'd sure appreciate it! John

    It depends upon the part you are looking for, but most R65 stuff is R65-only. Come over to and put out a request for parts.

    Yup, the headlight ring and mounting brackets are different between the R65 and R80/100 until 1985(?). The later models (85+) all have the same frame and would match each other but not your 84. I am not sure if the 79 or 80 R65 parts will fit. Looking for 81 - 84 is your best bet.
