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

Source for airhead oil filters. thx to batoutoflahonda

Or Wix. For the R80G/S w/o oil cooler the P/N: 24945 which is a NAPA PS4945. Napa you can order it on line and pay for it when you pick it up at your local store. Double check the Wix P/N here:

http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/index.asp

Note: When looking for the G/S #, use the R80G, and then the year goes back to 1981. WIX and NAPA kits both come with 'O' rings, shims, gasket, and drain plug seal washer.

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.

Question Low Profile R75/6 Headlight Socket Needed - source?

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,
bobp

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:

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.

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.
