Re: R50/2 steering damper parts length question...

To further confuse things, RealOEM shows #31412000048 for the R50 (pre 1961) and #31422000396 for the late model R50/2. Seems to be the same numbering system used by Vech. Ok Salis site shows 31422000396 is the damper for r50US R60US and R69US and is also 236 mm https://bmwclassicmotorcycles.com/in...
