R42 elektrics

I can't help with the battery holder as mine is missing also,along with the regulator. I do have an original key. If you want to PM me with a surface mail address I can send you a drawing. Could you send me the deminsions of the regulator box? Dan

R42 Tail light / number plate bracket

WHAT...Am I reading this correctly?? We have a new member that is capable of making his own parts? Don't you know that if you need pre-war parts that you are supposed to fly to the Fatherland and pick them up in person. Hello Peter, I have a rear plate bracket for an R42 and would be happy to send y...

R42 Speedometer

Yes, the inside look quite simple other than the little spring around the needle. What year is your R16? I have a 1930 R11 and the speedometers look the same other than the bezel. I think the bezel on the R42 is a push on type fit also. Have you disassembled your odometer? It looks like it may be an...

R11 brake plate breaking

My R11 has some kind of aftermarket carburetor and I want to replace it with an original single carb and I think that would be a two slide type. I don't want to replace it with twin carburetors. I didn't realize that a side slide carb was an option. That sounds like the best set up for my single cab...

R11 brake plate breaking

I guess if I put the correct twin slide carburetor on my R11 I will have to change from the twist grips and use the two lever set up,Is that correct? How do you use the levers? Do you open both slides the same amount ? What year was the single slide Sum first used?
