Looks like you may have most of the part number stamped right on it. I think all hoses start with the same 4 (or 3 ???) digits. Could be just a matter of punching the number in Max BMW parts finder then find your bike(s) amongst all the diagrams that will show up, that hose is probably used on many BMWs and for different functions.

Drink more, or catch a good stomach virus. And there's no "W" in it.

what is really weird is that the two parts don't match!

looks like they match in the picture, but they aren't split down the middle and they are two parts to a longer hose and the bike is running smooth. it's been very perplexing
It stands to reason they would not match if it were indeed separated by a rodent(s).

I briefly considered pointing that out...however, dealing with a n00b, this is wrenching not JM, we're all nice guys here eh?

any thoughts on what it is? we've been looking and looking with no indicator as to what it is...

any help would be appreciated.

No thoughts on the fallen parts. My suggestion is to get out your kit and begin removing covers. It would help to have a manual on hand to assist in identifying what should be there. Others have pointed out the likely suspects.

BTW: What Scotch is your fav? I love the single malt middle of the road, Dalwhinnie 15 comes to mind...

thanks for your help guys. never did actually solve this problem. couldn't find anything after taking the bike apart. must have been from my friends f800gs ;0

The dalwhinnie is very good. I suppose it depends on my mood. When its cold and I don't want to share ;) I drink lagavulin. Really nice smoky whiskey. My most recent find is a mid range, with a solid good price to quality ratio, the singleton. in canada the dalwhinnie is $100 and can't justify buying it as a base scotch. you guys?
