I have just bought a tidy looking 2001 K1200Rs. Its done a mere 50,000 km and the price was right. So now its time to sell my 1988 K100RT, and the collection of K100 spares I've built up. I'll list these later, but what I want to know for now is what parts, if any, are interchangeable with the K1200 as I'd hang on to these. I assume oil filters, but what about air filters, fuel pump, relays, shims, ignition units, gearbox, etc etc

The new


The old

That's a pretty K12 Rockman, I cant see any swappies for the two bikes though.

The Hall sensors are the same Phil but I think the plug is different. There is very little in common with a K1100 and almost nothing with a K100

I thought that would be the case. I'll make a list what I have for the K100 over the weekend. Mainly critical engine/electric spares.Prices will be very reasonable.
Are the shims the same size? I have a small box full and a tool thing.

Rockman,

If you have the time and the patience you might like to check out the items you have by looking at Realoem.com (There is also a link on the Motorworks website).

If you have not used it as a reference before, throw in the last seven digits of the VIN and it will bring up your model so as you can search through the parts to find BMW part numbers.

If my brain is working correctly today, you can also punch in the BMW number in the search option for Motorworks and if the item is interchangeable it willbring upthe partand all the models of BMW that it is used on.

I hope this helps, Dave.

I have thought of one other thing Phil, the rear brake caliper should be the same.

Havent got one of those. Looks like almost nothing is interchangable, so I'll make a list and post it over the weekend.
cheers, Phil

What you have is a 2002 K1200RS. The '01 model is the previous shape with ABS2. Your bike has (or should have) iABS also known as ABS3 as well as servo assisted linked brakes. The front brake links with the back while the back brake is back only. The linked brakes are set 50/50 at a slow pace and will shift brake pressure to the front depending on how fast and hard you hit the picks. The ECU monitors this and adjusts the pressure accordingly moving brake pressure seamlessly forward as the centre of effort on the bike moves forward under heavy braking.
Nice looking bike too! Looks like it's been well looked after. Did it come with a full service history?
I have owned the same model since new and have a fair bit of knowledge on them if you are in need of any advice

Oil filter & fuel filter are the same part number between all bricks. The bike is a post June of 2001 with that newer style front fairing with integrated signals. The brakes will be linked ABS unless someone's pitched the system, but then your speedo won't work. the easiest way to suss out what brake system you've got on these bikes is to look at the backs of the front callipers. Are they enclosed or open, showing the tops of the brake pads? Closed is the early (rebuildable ABS pump) system. The latter type are linked, servo assisted. Change the brake fluid often! The brake pads differ, too. The rear pads are the same between bikes, however. For practical purposes, no other engine components are going to be the same between a K100 8V and the K1200. The hall sensors are the same except for the plug and the way it's wired. It's not an easy swap due to the coated earth wire and two colour coded wires needing to be reversed. I have the hall sensor's plug wiring 'plans' if you need them and have done it for my Big Block K100. The wiring loom is totally different. The headlight bulbs are different, even the tyre sizes and wheels are different.

Don't forget that the tyre valve inserts are interchangeable.
