Where can I get 2 new pushrods for my R80 G/S?
Good and cheap.
http://www.motobins.co.uk/bmw-parts.php?model=R Series 2 valve Twin
Excellent price and quality ...no affiliation just happy customer ....9 GBP ea = approx $12 USD ea
I assume you've tried the usual suspects ... Munich, Motobins and Motoworks
Here is some info on making a fork lower for the right side from a left side part.
I have a 1971 /5 and it is missing the right side cover. The left one is perfect just missing it's mate. I found them new but $250 for a SET of tins? Any right side for a /5 would do, powder coat is cheap. If you have one do PM me.
You might have better luck putting this in the Flea market.
I see that both Max and Bob's BMW have right covers (single, not a pair) for the /5 listed for around $115, but they look like /6 covers in the picture
I think he is looking for the toaster ones, and yes should be in FleaMarket
Source for airhead oil filters. thx to batoutoflahonda
Anyone know the thread size on a R100GS master cylinder? I've got all the bits to do a Brembo 4 piston caliper swap except for the banjo bolt for the Spiegler brake line. Better yet any one have the part # for the bolt?
Damn! Another Coastie. Retired ship driver here.
I think I have a few banjos in the parts bins. Are you going to need a double, or single. Let me know when you figure out the size, and if I can match it I'll send you one.
Might be better to PM me just so I notice and don't forget to check this thread.
i had to replace the 3-prong headlight socket on my r75/6 and i noticed that the generic one i picked up is longer than OEM by about 1/4inch. it doesn't sound like much but it's real crowded back there (even after making adjustments to the wiring) and am worried that the socket will mash up against the wiring panel that's bolted to the rear of the bucket.
also, the OEM spade connectors are oriented at 90 degrees, while the replacement ones are straight back.
replacement socket with wiring was $3.50, OEM at max is $63 plus shipping.
anyone found a sutable replacement? many thx,
I think you need something like this, I think I have some of them in my box of assorted connectors, so they are available there and there:
That's a very cool site! Thanx for sharing that one with us!
I've just googled H4 90° connectors and it seems like some H-D's use them on some models ... here
If it's not blasphemy/heresy to say it here, it might be a cheaper OEM solution, also it should open up a wider range of after market vendors too.
that eagerbeaver site has just what i needed, an H4 socket with right-angled connections. thx!
Late reply- A 71 did not have side covers
I dont think he asked if the 71 had side covers, he said his 71 is missing one side cover. here are my two bikes a 69 and a 71 and they both have sidecovers.
The 71 does not have tabs on the rear frame to properly hold the side covers in place.
Or, you could consider this.
