My speedometer needle broke off, so I'm looking for a new speedometer. However, my entire instrument cluster is pretty messed up, so ideally I can replace the whole box.

Parts #1 or #2 on the diagram on this page:
http://www.bmwmcchattanooga.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_product=1053713&ukey_assembly=478908

I found an instrument cluster from a R1100RT for sale near me. Would the speedometer from a R1100RT work on my bike?

No the speedometers are very different the R series of that vintage is cable driven, the K is electronic and has no cable.

I've got a MPH version from an 85 K100RT. 87k miles on the clock. It worked when removed but occasionally the speedo would cut out. A tap to the speedo with a knuckle would get it going again. If you are interested, pm me.

Hello!

You Biker is from 1985, The PINs on Speedometer shout be oval not round. I think from 1988 or 1991 they should be round.
The 1988 has the ABS light instead of the old 5 and 7 L fuel warning.
Make sure you get the correct one!

Cheers

I think the change in fuel tank came in 85.

Old one has the bolt down gas tank and the 7 orange/4 litre red fuel warning lights.

New one has a single 5 litre fuel warning light.

Check on what clocks you have but if you have the 7 and 4 litre warning light the later one won't fit.

However the gurus do tell me that some of the internal components do swap ok but I don't know which ones.

To add to the confusion further I got a 'new' set of clocks off a local forum member. When I went to fit them I had to modify them. The mounting bracket on my RT and the one that came with the clocks had the same part no moulded into it, despite being completely different. The cluster was a straight fit.
