Re: Help me find a R51/3 brake lever bearing bolt

My brake pedal bearing bolt was also sloppy on my R51/3 frame don't think a +2 new bolt would help
Greased it up and works just fine

Maybe enlarge the frame hole and make a bushing to fit new hole and brake pedal bearing bolt

Re: Horn switch

With a brass brush and some dielectric grease the switch is working much better now. Chuck https://bmwclas...
