I do not want to mention the parts supplier, I am in New Zealand and tried ordering the parts here locally and they said they would have to see it they could get the parts for elsewhere. The parts I was looking for were 29 61 31 1 353 684 STOP LIGHT SWITCH and 23 34 21 1 242 791 SET: REPAIR KIT BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER which was for a 1982 R100RS.
I ordered the parts over the internet from MAXBMW by contacting the internet parts manager via email. The shipping cost were about a third of the actual parts cost. I was happy paying this as they had stock and delivery was quick. On arrival of the parts I noticed there was a rubber O ring missing from the brake master cylinder. See the photo from their website with the missing part and link to the parts on their website http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fiche/DiagramsMain.aspx?vid=51647&rnd=03252011

I notified them of the missing part and itís been to and fro of emails with no result. They have now updated the website with some parts photos and added more photos indicating the size of the O ring etc. The last few emails I have received keeps referring to the parts manager to reply but he does not respond so the problem.
The last email I received says If I am in a hurry I must return the parts for a refund and I should buy a new complete master cylinder and kit.
I replaced the master cylinder rubbers only because I was busy replacing the stop switch which has seized from standing in storage and thought it should be a good idea while I was busy with the brakes at the time.
I have in the meantime replace the kit all I want is the rubber O ring that goes on the top and holds the supply pipe.
