Throttle cable R50/5 R60/5 R60/6 R60/7

Hey Airheads, are you down because your euro bar equipped R50 or R60 does not want to run right? Maybe you need new throttle cables. Here is a new pair straight from BMW. $5 to cover shipping if you're not in a hurry and I can ship them next time I get to The States, or $17 if I have to ship them from here (unless you're in Canada, in which case we can work a deal involving back bacon and Labatts). These are for slide carbs, NOT cv carbs.



EDIT :Cables will be making their way to Wirespokes shortly, thanks guys.

R12Battletub screwed with this post 12-21-2012 at 09:49 AM Reason: Cables sold.

Have a new airtech R90S7 fairing (http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/bmw/bmwboxer.htm) with a Gustafsson R90S 8 (http://www.bikescreen.com/search.asp) smoke windscreen, for trade/sale. These are new never mounted with drill bit for plastics and windscreen fasteners, over $275 into it...

Cheers,
Pete
I suppose I could use any full size seat that would fit...

You can use a /6 seat or a LWB /5. A /7 seat will fit if you use the /7 tank or don't mind the gap you would get with the /7 seat and a /6 tank.

Or you could order a nice solo set from Chris (bmweuro).

I'm not looking for a cafe seat, more along the lines of the original solo and couldn't really find anything like that at his website...

It might be one of those deals where you have to ask him directly. This seat came from Chris:

It probably won't. The originals say BOSCH on them. They're Halogen (H4) with a separate little bulb for the parking light.

That's a good lookin solo seat. Saw one on eBay that was nice. Pricey imo, but pretty. It may have been /5 though.

That's a /5 it's on but I think it's also good for /6s and maybe /7s, too. The seat comes with the front post so it sits on both hinges making it very secure. Wasn't cheap but I thought the cost was very fair.
