I use the little clear plastic ones that you can see the filter inside.
About 1.00 inch in diameter.

jrozar,

Buy Dudetomm's bike:

http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/mcy/3826128157.html

It's nicer than a lot of them, from what I can tell.

The standard advice concerning BWs is:

1.) If you need OEM parts, then Partshark is your best friend

2.) If you are looking for discontinued or obsolete parts, eBay is your best friend

3.) If you are looking to buy a BW, Craigslist is your best friend

4.) If you own a BW, you have no friends

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Good evening,

Because I couldn´t find a battery cover, I build one myself.

my "NEW" to me BW350

http://vanzbw.smugmug.com/photos/swf...lbumKey=bdGXSn I've wanted to pick one up for a while and finally found one 1 1/2 hrs away. The flu kept me from getting there until today. Now safe and sound infront of my house I climb back onto the couch and will clean the carb another day. I have a place upstate near Ellenville NY if anyone is up there and wants to flog some BW's let me know.

I have offered but no takers yet.
I am a 32 year tool and die maker.
I make the parts I need for my builds.

Sometimes can take me a little while though with a busy life.
