1200 Rs were made from 04-08 but Dan's paint job and decal are both copies of the 883 R. I agree. His bike looks really good.

I thought 02 was the first 883 R with that paint scheme, almost bought one back then.

AWESOME!

Man I'm loving that bike!

BTW - just got a text message back from Jenn - if I got the prices right she's willing to write a check on the brake bits and forks. MAYBE I can FINALLY get a little bit of ground clearance on her bike!!!!

True, but I was referring to the years that the 1200 R's were made which was 2004-2008..

Thanks again for all the kind words (and rep for those that gave it). It is much appreciated. I'd love to hear from anyone else who has or is going to try this setup.


And FYI - I have a whole thread dedicated to my 1200R's paint work, "My interpretation of a 1200R" thread.

LOL! I know... you really just wanted to show me that 5/8=10/16... officially And here I was quite proud of myself that I managed to convert from mm and decimals to inches and fractions
But thanks for fixing up my confusion on the bore on your stock caliper!
