that can be easily fixed with a MI or TIG weld.....easier than finding one.

Hi all! I'm looking for the headlight 'parts' for a 75 R75/6. By 'parts' I mean lens, reflector, chrome ring, etc. I've got the bucket but thats it. PO lost them when he had a Vetter V installed. Anyone have any of that lying about or know where I can source one without having to sell a kidney!

I'm sure some wizard could do it, but that is one mighty light, oxidized piece of aluminum to be welded. I've TIGed two beer cans together, bottom to bottom, but I'm sure I couldn't weld that little diffuser.

Don't think it is Aluminum. It's Steel. It's also not a separate part but part of the reflector and Max lists it for $180. Reflector will work with out it.

The bikes are still for sale. I should have by now replied to all inquiries.

I had the usual bizarro offers. Note: I'm not interested in parting out the bikes, shipping the bikes for free, delivering the bikes for free, trading for firearms, trading for movie memorabilia, etc...

Thanks,
Carl

I'll get the VINS and as much info as feasible for any serious buyer. There are no titles included with the bikes. The luggage is not included in the deal as shown on the /7. They are located in the Cleverland, OH area. I need to get them out of their storage area ASAP.

$2K for the pair. You need to pick them up as delivery isn't an option.

Email, as in NO PM, if interested.

Thanks,
Carl

WTB 1996 R100R evaporative emissions canister etc.

I'm looking to replace the evaporative emissions equipment removed by the P.O.

It's not just a question of being green. I sometimes smell gas fumes from the open vent on the bottom of the tank, especially after refueling.

Evap emissions equipment doesn't affect performance in the slightest, save an extra pound of weight.

Leads would be appreciated.

Also check your hoses from the petcocks, they might be leaky or loose.

Just a thought,

Unfortunately I lot of us took that stuff off year ago and threw it away. Check with some of the older BMW dealers.

This might not all be relevant. It's just what I turned up. The last link seems to include a link to more info on the IBMWR site. I found another lead from 2005 about changing cylinder heads, I don't think this is something that is normally done anymore. Plug the holes and go riding.

Not helpful.

The holes are plugged, and the bike runs fine. Petcocks are not leaking. I'd like to reduce emissions and mouthfuls of fumes after filling up. I've pulled the tank and it's obvious that fumes are coming out of the extra vent on the bottom of the tank on this evap.-equipped bike.

The links provided are all from people wanting to remove the smog equipment.

I'd like to hear from readers who may have this stuff sitting around their garage and want to part with it.

I actually have the external hoses that go between the heads and the air box, and inside the airbox valves that I took off my 1982 R100.

Send me a PM and we can get it sorted out.

I realized that only after I had made the post with links. Good Luck with it. I think there was one other doing replacement of emissions last summer maybe. Don't have that link.

I have all the airbox stuff if you need that, but that is the for air-injection... I think the OP is talking about getting the SHED equipment that vents the tank itself? Different ball o' wax....

would it be possible to run a hose from the vent on the bottom to the airfilter housing? sort of recycle the fumes. all that vent does is drain spilled gas. on mine, I have a hose from that vent to the bottom of the frame. anything that comes out goes right to the ground.
