making up a list of parts to order for 1987 k100rt ,still have not started it and wont untillI replace a few parts... list so far.. major service kit / rear master cyd / 15 x fuel hose hp / 5 x fuel hose tank / petrol cap lock... with the petrol cap had trouble releasing it ,found on reading its a common prob with older bikes ,ordering the lock is easy and cheap but I understand the other prob is the plastic surround ,is there a cheap and easy solution without having to buy a compleatlynew cap and any other suggestions for other parts for a untested and unstarted bike (without throwing the bank a /c away).... thanks.. by the way still here ,good shed weather

Best if you go to the Forum page to choose the correct forum for this. You've posted in the New Members Intro section. Maybe one of the moderators can move it over?

You should be looking at replacing rubber parts like the crankcase breather, rear output seal etc.
You'll probably need new injector kits as well.

Make sure your tyres are not too old. There's a date code stamped on the side.

Replace all your filters and fluids.

Cheers

Flea,

To make things easier if searching for parts and to suss out the prices, have a look at these three sites. They are the main ones I use. Postage from the UK and USA can be a bit excy but will give you an idea of what is available. Buy new parts if possible and motorworks have a good range of second hand parts.

motobins.co.uk

motorworks.co.uk

euromotorelectrics.com

There are others and I never had any real dramas from any of them.

You can source some items locally that are used throughout the automotive world such as relays, bearings, fuses, fuel hose, etc but Bosch have a bit of a woeful record in Oz.

Generally I buy a couple of spares at the same time as I have more than one K75 and there is a fair bit of commonality across the range. A number of parts fit across the whole of the BMW bike (and car) range. A few of us southern members have sourced things locally, so if you are after something specific, just ask as someone has no doubt been chasing one before.

If you throw up a list of what you are thinking of buying, then we can probably advise the best place to get it from. Occasionally we have some international travelers who have carried large parts on our behalf (thanks Paul ).

Cheers, T.

flea, here is a post from last year re fuel caps, options to facilitate opening and also some links for parts overhaul kits for the later type (meaning without push button to open) which you probably have on a 1987.

Swear Bear Harris on U Tube has a video of stripping the cap and fitting new seals which is really helpful.

Look at this thread.

Cheers
