    Same gaskets for /5 ("Peanut") and /7 valve covers. Available from Capital Cycle, Max BMW and others. They're like $5 each.

    I really need an 18" Akront Rim. I have no idea where to even start looking ... I need it for the GS hub ... so a tubeless. All I can say is here is a picture of one.

    Who's got the goods?

    That is a crazy low price on complete kits. Being in the BMW parts business for 25 years and buying from Europe for over 20 of that I would question the quality.

    I kinda remember EUBMW gaskets being a little wonky. Bought from them once, I think.

    Hucky ( Hans Lowe ) is the best source for Bing rebuild kits, or anything for your Airhead. Call him up, you'll see.

    I have them in stock as well. I don't advertise them because I use a lot of them in carburetor rebuilding. Hucky is $71.90 and I'm at $65.00.

    I also need a suitable replacement for the rubber 'frame mounting' piece that is under the R65 and g/s tanks. I was told that it didn't have a BMW part number ... anyone have ideas around that?

    I need a tachometer to fit a 1988 or later BMW R100. It is the electronic version.

    Please email me at ermck@live.com if you know of one for sale.

    Thanks.

    I like my local BMW dealer for airhead parts.

    Hucky's kit for later 32mm carbs including diaphragms is $11.50 less than getting the parts individually from BMW. $83.40 versus $71.90. The savings to me is inconsequential since chances are you don't need some of those parts anyway. The diaphragms for instance, that's a big part of the kit that you probably don't need plus the diaphragms themselves might be some of those that are too thick and effect jetting.

    Another Hucky's kit that I checked into was no savings over getting the parts individually at a dealership at all.

    I need a used right side exhaust pipe hanger clamp (not muffler clamp) for a '77 R75/7 to complete my refit to stock.

    Thanks.

    Yes. I would expect that to be the purpose of a rubber. :evil

    Thanks J!
