*** BMW Airhead Forum ***

Let's post all the BMW airhead stuff in here. The other old school rides can do the same under their header. Too messy otherwise. Can a mod sticky this? Thanks.

O ring on the timing can

Does anyone know what the diameter and width is of the timing can O ring? I need to buy a new one (leaks) and I'm trying to source an aftermarket part locally.

So you want every airhead topic under one thread? Happy scrolling.

Well, it's better that way than to have all the old bikes etc. mixed into one pot. I offered to moderate an airhead forum, but it never went anywhere.

Probably because there is no airhead forum.

I was warming Chop up to lobby, but he bailed on me. I'm actually heading off to Snohomish to beat the crap out of him this AM.

I've ordered one, so then I will know,... but it's going to be a while before I get it - it's all mixed up with some other stuff, and I haven't been able to start the project yet.
There are some bearing specs online, and on the microfiche (http://www.xmission.com/~wendell/GS/) most of them have the sizes, but it would be nice to have all the o-ring sizes.

Dudes, this basically *is* the airhead forum. While you are welcome to *try* to organize all airhead content into one thread, I wont force anyone, nor will I permit arm-twisting to do so.

Malindi, c'mon up. You are welcome to attempt an ass-kicking. But I warn ya, pack a lunch; it's gonna take all day. Oh and there is beer in the fridge.

Heck, I'm down in Machias a handful of times a year. We should hook up. You have a Goos, right? I'll see to it that you get invited to the next Tech Day.
