Online BMW part fiches?
« on: December 05, 2018, 05:03:46 AM »
Had another mishap...minor one...hit a deer.  :o

No real damage, but the right yellow reflector on the front fender was ripped off (attached with double-sided tape).

To be fair, even the BMW shop is having to research this.  The reflector has a beveled base, but all the online images that come close show a curved base (to attach to the fork).  BMW shop thinks the image is just incorrect, but they don't want to order a part and find out it's wrong...they get stuck with it.

So...first...is there an online source for looking up parts on your BMW?  I have a shop CD, but it's difficult to navigate at best and doesn't seem to provide part numbers.  I usually want these so (1) I can visualize how things come apart/go together before I start working on the bike and (2) make sure I have the correct part number when ordering an OEM replacement.

Second, anyone know a good source for a variety of reflectors?  I'm suspecting it will be easier to remove the other with a heat gun and put on a new pair (so they match) that I got from another source.  Nothing that unique about the BMW reflector.

That's gotta be an all-time record for the most minor deer damage ever.

Bet the deer would have a different opinion.

Don't be silly, deers don't have reflectors.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

For a second I thought that was "asscycles.com."  :-\

No luck with fiches....they all lack the part on any of the charts.

I took measurements....

2 1/4" long
1 3/8" wide
1/2" deep on one end tapering to 1/8" (+/-) on the other

How about remove and don't replace as an option?

Last option.  I don't know if it's an inspection item in Virginia.

Here's an image from a S1000R (K47).

It has the part displayed but not a part number.  This looks exactly like what's on the RS.

No luck with fiches...

You probably need to buy the entire front end sub-assembly. ;D

FINALLY got the part number.  It comes from the S1000R but finding a diagram with the part number was the tricky bit.
