Re: Help with parts cross-referencing

You answered one very important question about the interchangability of the sub-frame (back-frame or whatever the correct terminology is) for the RT vs the RS...they aren't the same. That will save me from spending money on the RT sub-frame on ebay. It's probably a bargain at <$100, but it's no bargain if I can't use it. 
The bike is at the shop right now...if I can get out there with my dig. camera, I'll send you some pics. Thanks for the offer of help.

If you are talking about the Back-frame, the one which has to be flipped-up to 
remove the transmission ................ that frame is not interchangeable 
between RS and RT.
I have a '94 R1100RS and if you send me digital photos I can tell you more.  I 
welded and also replaced foot-peg level supports for regular saddle bags.
I am not familiar with supports for the aluminum cases.

Contact me off list, if you wish

  I recently rode my '94 R11RS in the Iron Butt Rally knocking down about 
  12,500 miles in 11 days and I had the bike outfitted with a set of Frank Doerr 

  aluminum panniers. These bags attach to a couple of points under the rear 
  of the seat on the subframe where the stock bags mounting bracket attach and 
  also to an opening on the subframe where the passenger footpegs normally 

  A minor tip over caused two of the mounting points on the left side to break 
  (one at the footpeg position and the other was one of the two points under the 

  seat). The right side footpeg point is also cracked and is well on its way to 
  breaking completely.

  I'm figuring that a welding job is in order, but there is a subframe for an 
  R11RT on ebay right now. Anyone know if this RT subframe would happen to be a 
  swap for an RS subframe?
