Radiator compatability 2019 S1000R vs S1000RR

I'm about to buy a crashed 2019 S1000R. Most of the damage is cosmetic, although it does need a new radiator, as well as the headlight/gauge support and some minor things. The price is right though...

The OEM radiator is awfully expensive, and S1000R radiators aren't exactly easy to find used. I see there are aftermarket radiators available for the S1000RR, and that the coolant hoses and guards for them are the same, but the radiator itself is specific to the R/XR.

Can anyone tell me whether the RR radiator will fit an R/XR?

I'm sure I'll have some other questions over time as well.

Looks like it might, maybe the part number is different because one is painted black and the other is grey? Welcome to the forum.

That's what I'm hoping. I don't need it to look factory, just trying to get the bike to be a decent rider (rather than pristine/OEM).

Also: I can't find a parts fiche for 2019. Is there any difference from 17/18? I think they're the same, just want to make sure.

I will say that some of the OEM part prices are pretty outrageous: fuel tank is $2300, header $4300, muffler $1500. Those 3 together are over half MSRP. I'll be going used/aftermarket when possible.

If it's a K47 (in the VIN) then it's the same as the earlier models, only slight differences that you can find by selecting the correct OD version (again in the VIN). Use RealOEM.com and you will find everything you need to know.

WB10D6209KZ97xxxx is the vin. Looking at various web sites I see that it's a K47 but don't see that in the vin.

Here is how it breaks down

WB is where it is made and that is Germany

1 is motorcycle

0 means a two wheel motorcycle

That 0 is part of the series meaning is a K47 (S 1000 R) BMW S 1000 R 17 (0D52, 0D62). Type Code: 0D62

The 8th usually indicates some type of engine in cars, but on the motorcycle it is always a ZERO

The next which is the 9 digit in a VIN is the all important check digit

The 10th is the next most important part of the VIN, the MODEL YEAR ( MY ) in this case of yours 2019 ( K )

the rest goes on to plant manufacturing and Z is 4 cylinder

Riding and loving my 2020 K67 with the custom XWORKS ECU
Check out MotoMillion ( forum Vendor section ) for all your needs in ECU work
Check out MotoMillion also has programming for RCK3 / HP power Kit enables now
Programmer for MotoMillion is myself ( BMW_388 )
I personally own the 2014, 2015, 2018, 2020 S1000RR
This makes for checking my ECU work is perfect every time sold by MotoMillion
BMW_388 is online now

Thank you. I'd been thinking that K47 would be in the VIN in plain text somewhere rather than having to decode it.

do these bikes require 91 octane? I don't mind the extra cost but sometimes remote stations are 87 only. I assume the RR requires 91 but the detuned R might be different.

Check the owner's manual, if you don't have one you can find it on line. It is country specific, as the method of measuring octane is not universal.

You can find the K47 by putting the manufacturing date into the parts fiche system, the date (month/year) is on the VIN sticker, top right corner.

Coincidentally I saw this post from an R owner in England. He has fitted an RR rad and found that the filler neck and rad cap are too high, so the fairing will not fit. Bad news.
