I kinda remember EUBMW gaskets being a little wonky. Bought from them once, I think.

Hucky ( Hans Lowe ) is the best source for Bing rebuild kits, or anything for your Airhead. Call him up, you'll see.

I have them in stock as well. I don't advertise them because I use a lot of them in carburetor rebuilding. Hucky is $71.90 and I'm at $65.00.

I also need a suitable replacement for the rubber 'frame mounting' piece that is under the R65 and g/s tanks. I was told that it didn't have a BMW part number ... anyone have ideas around that?

Tachometer needed

I need a tachometer to fit a 1988 or later BMW R100. It is the electronic version.

Please email me at ermck@live.com if you know of one for sale.

Thanks.

I like my local BMW dealer for airhead parts.

Hucky's kit for later 32mm carbs including diaphragms is $11.50 less than getting the parts individually from BMW. $83.40 versus $71.90. The savings to me is inconsequential since chances are you don't need some of those parts anyway. The diaphragms for instance, that's a big part of the kit that you probably don't need plus the diaphragms themselves might be some of those that are too thick and effect jetting.

Another Hucky's kit that I checked into was no savings over getting the parts individually at a dealership at all.

Exhaust pipe hanger

I need a used right side exhaust pipe hanger clamp (not muffler clamp) for a '77 R75/7 to complete my refit to stock.

Thanks.

Yes. I would expect that to be the purpose of a rubber.

Thanks J!

Did you factor in the 10% discount he offers depending on payment method?
