I had the same thing happen to my 97' R1100RS. We determined it was due to
the final drive hitting the bottom of the case over a hard bump. I'm not
sure if the R has the same problem. Check the top of your final drive and
the bootom of your case for a mark if they hit. I was able to get the inner
section of the case from BMW. Sorry I can't remember the price.
