I have lost the spring and C clip broke. Just went zooming out as I was staring at it to figure out how to remove. Its on the floor somewhere but no luck finding it. Also I have had no luck finding a suitable spring and C clip at the local hardware store. . I will purchase the entire knob if you have one or just the spring and clip. My preference is to obtain a complete knob w spring and clip as mine has wear on the C clip groove.

The knob, part number 62 11 1 459 244, is still available from BMW for early K bikes. The clip is run of the mill, tho' not sure what size without digging into a mess of tiny spares in an old yoghurt tub at the back of a shelf just out of reach.

It's a good idea to post your bike year & model under the Profile tab above in the Signature section so that other forum users know which specific model you're referring to.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, when I searched on Max BMW's site, 62 11 1 459 244 comes back Unavailable.


I assume if a part is Unavailable on one BMW dealers site, its Unavailable on all or do I have to search around?


Also I will put my bike particulars in my signature, thanks.

Unavailable might just mean in the US. On Tuesday when I hope to return to work I will check the stock on that part number in Germany which means, if not in the NLA or no longer available status, a US dealer can order it in for you. It really doesn't take much for a parts counter person to take a look to see, but I hear reports regularly of dealership personnel not bothering to give it a quick squiz and then just stating to a customer that a part is unavailable.

Another option for you is to look on eBay, etc., to see if you can locate an instrument cluster (be sure to get the correct vintage), so you haver a spare cluster to rob from, especially as these things become less and less available.

Thanks, I appreciate your willingness to help. I have already been thru the instrument cluster and now have everything working, just frustrated with the reset knob which I screwed up myself!

That's what I ended up doing, getting a spare gauge set and then used the good parts, knob, clip, gear position indicator, trip meter to fix my gauge. You have to shop around to find the right one and some are asking a pretty penny.

As long as you are not in a hurry to get something working, you can keep an eye on eBay and snag one at a good price when it comes around. I've managed to get two of them now for well under a hundred bucks each.
