Re: Where to locate all the rubber parts of the headlight support brackets?

Came back for update. I found the old rubber pieces inside the steel holes of the brackets, all hardened and painted with a few layers of old black paint. This explains why the new rubber could not be inserted. Gave those bracket holes a good clean and now all is installed and fine. Thank you all ag...

Re: R51/3 – correct way of assemble the drive shaft

Thanks Klaus, I went as you said and all look well. I realize that the old sloping pin is worn, I will make my own from 4340 steel, should have a piece of this stuff lying around somewhere. Plobably will tap it to 8x1.25 as I can't find my 8x1 die. Will use loctite in addition to the split pin. Than...

R51/3 – correct way of assemble the drive shaft

I wonder what the best method for this installation is. I have attached the hardy rubber thing (with its ring) on the engines output. I have taken the rear wheel out and loosened both chrome caps on top of the rear spring plungers (27 mm socket). Now the rear drive unit can be tilted left and right....

BMW K75 - Complete fairing needed

I have a friend who sent me this picture: He would like to know where he can get the complete plastic kit: front fairing, tail, pannels etc. All of it. A major problem is to understand part numbers and/or to find a reliable source, as there are many K75 models and he is sticking to this picture. Tha...

Re: Where to locate all the rubber parts of the headlight support brackets?

Evening James,
Thanks a lot for your explanation.
My problem is that from the beginning I could not insert this rubber sleeve inside the headlamp's bracket hole.

Re: Where to locate all the rubber parts of the headlight support brackets?

So if I understood you correctly, No. 17 (which as mentioned is made of rubber) is supposed to go into the metal bore of the bracket? I tried it already and it has no room in there :(

Where to locate all the rubber parts of the headlight support brackets?

Pls explain to me where should the forks metal bracket fit in? And where is grommet nr. 17 going to be located? I have purchased them all new, for both sides of the lamp. Both the bracket and the lamp surface have a serrated area, so logically they should touch each other, but then it is not making ...

After Market Condenser

I have just red the article from Craig Vechorik about replacing the coil or/and magneto on the side of the road. Regarding the condenser, he says: " The condenser is not a problem to obtain, since a V8 ford condenser can be used, and they are readily available from any auto parts store ". Well here ...
