I have disassembled my stock cap for my K100 RS, produced in 7/84, to powder coat it. I have found that the plastic barrel shaped insert which the lock cylinder fits into, is worn and the key will not turn easily or not at all.

looking for a good used early style cap or just the plastic barrel in good condition. Again this is the early style cap which has a roughly 1 1/2" rectangular removable insert in the center of the cap surrounding the lock cylinder. 

Thanks

Unless you must have that type its better to change to the later one. I have that type on my 83 RS and plan to change it out. They are prone to leak as in rain ingress.

I am aware that the early cap has some shortcomings but wish to keep the bike as original as possible. I am doing a restoration and the goal is complete originality.

I have made changes to my early RS too and kept the original parts for the same reason.

Second photo is my son trying it out for size. Helmet is hiding his M3....
