About

The R1100 series from BMW delivered a sporty touring bike to the market, building upon the success of previous models such as the R90S. The so-called R1100 Twin included air cooled cylinders and oil cooled heads, typically with a 1,085 cc engine. Bikes in the series were available in both five and six-speed transmissions. ABS was optional on the bike, with front dual 320mm brakes and a single rear disc. A full breakdown of routine maintenance tasks can be found in Haynes’ maintenance manual, with specifics including wheel/tire, regular spark plug and light switch checks alongside oil and filter changes.
