The /5 grab rail is the same if later models. The first year had a funny two piece that will also work. Max BMW lists this part still available for $211.

Getting a seat rail isn't quite as easy as it sounds. First, you need to determine which seat you have. If you have a 1970 or 1971, it will be a short wheel base seat with two separate grab rails, the wrap around hand rail will not work on these seats (period).

If you have a 1972 seat, this is a short wheel base seat but the first year of the wrap around seat rail. A long wheel base seat rail can be made to work on a short wheel base seat (if a short wheel base seat rail is unavailable) by mounting the two front mounts first then bending the rear mounts to meet the seat.

If you have a 1973 seat, this could be both a long wheel base or a short wheel base seat (you will need to determine which you have). Again, this would be the wrap around seat rail. A short seat rail will not work on a long seat.

On both the 1972 and 1973 seats (long or short) the two individual hand rails of the 1970 and 1971 seats will not work. The hand rails need to be matched to the proper seat pan.

On 1972 and 1973 seats (and some later seats) the common replacement was a Reynolds back rest.

were is the best place to go for used airhead parts? I am looking for a forum like this where I can post WTB ads. IBMWR?, BMWMOA? Pelican? All of them? easier to say which to avoid/are a waste of time?

I appreciate the input.

WTB:

1976 R60/6 speedo/odo/tach instrument cluster cover. the one with the indicator light and glass bezels.

1976 R60/6 seat latch assembly. I have a good working tumbler - I just need the latch assembly. or some advice on how to fix my assembly. the back plate is pushed out/deformed (I am assuming from prolonged pressure from the spring mechanism) and basically functions as it should other then it not holding the seat closed TIGHT. it holds the seat - but there is a lot of slop and play - is this normal??

Scott, the frame is slightly different as the G/S and ST run a different wiring harness and the spaces to connect the relays etc. on the frame are different.

In the past year I've worked on an '84 ST, an '85 G/S and an '81 G/S. The '84 ST and '85 G/S both had a relay bracket welded to the top tube, the '81 G/S did not. Also the ST and G/S have different footpegs so the rider peg bracket may also be different. That is all I have to say about this.

Krauser mount from the /5 era. Note of caution; if you think removing the rear wheel is a pain in the butt, with this mount, forget it! To mount or remove this rack you will need to remove the taillight and turn signals. These can be made for short or long wheelbase models, be sure to get the one specific to your model. The tangs bolt to the holes in the muffler brackets. Passenger pegs are unaffected.

I have those on my /6. To remove the rear wheel I take the front wheel off, tie the centerstand to the crossover pipe or the front axle, that has been replaced, and tip the bikes rear up and rest the bike on the front forks, rear end elevated. Now the rear wheel will come out thru the bottom.

Piece of cake.

Thanks for the tips. It's for sale locally. I'm not going to buy it now, but it's $100 if anyone is interested.
