Keep you wondering what it's used for. (It's a test program BMW is secretly running, to see if owners will contact their dealers to order another one should this one be lost.)

















I'm sure it's just the way that Italian company delivered them. There is nothing on the bike using it. But it does keep the threads clean.

Close, the smaller threads are so the adapter can be changed to Presta or Schrader valves. It's old skool technology long before they started making pumps with double heads (plastics).

Hey MTDewX8, Got the hard parts painted and mounted today. All you need is 1 x 40 for bottom left mount and 3 X 30s for the rest.

put a cork in it

A wine cork plugs the recess in the swing arm to prevent water collecting and siezing the lower shock mount bolt.

Fork seals are dcw 45 58 11. From www.marzocchi.co.uk they are 5.95 each. No doubt much cheaper than bmw prices.
