Guys

Will a 1980's RS throttle cable fit 91 RS? In other words were there any changes to the throotle cable design during RS production (So when I buy a secondhand one as a spare it will work if I need it to!).

Can't see any cables on RealOEM.

Thanks
Dave

Looking at the ETK, I believe that all the throttle cables are the same for the RS.
To my knowledge, the only modification was made for the 84-85 RTs to accept the latest models of throttle cables.

I once bought a used spare clutch cable, and after shipping, it was almost as expensive as a new one.
Here in Canada, the cost for a throttle cable is $37 (or 23£ +VAT).
Do you want to save 5£ or 10£ and take a chance to get a worn cable?

Thanks Bert. I don't think I'll need one but I'm doing some trips this year and want a spare of some sort. New ones now seem expensive compared to used. I will buy a new clutch cable but risk a used throttle. Got to stay on budget somehow.

What's ETK?

Thanks Very Happy
Dave

ETK: Elektronischer Teilekatalog or in plain English: ELECTRONIC PARTS CATALOG

This is the system that dealers use.

Here is what I found:
Part # 32 73 2 310 498 fits:
K 1 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993
K 100 RS 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992
K 1100 RS 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996

K100rt or LT are dfferent.

It's a different throttle cable on the 4V models than the 2V's.

I've found this site helpful in finding parts and numbers and cross referencing different models

http://www.bmwmcchattanooga.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_assembly=184987&ukey_product=1037825

As you can see it lists at least 6 diff. cables

Looks like RS changed cable at 6/86
