***MODERATOR EDIT, 2012-01-09:

This thread is now nearly a decade old, and very long. The information that has trickled in over the years has been compiled into a spreadsheet and a text file via Jim VonBaden, and as of the above date, the files are being hosted by OldSalt.

The files are available at these links:

Rich Text Format (*.RTF)

Microsoft Excel spreadsheet format (*.XLS)

You may also find helpful information by entering your bike's VIN (or a part thereof) at this link or at this link.


Ever needed a basic part for your bike, but didn't feel like making a 250-mile trip to the nearest dealer? Ever been stuck out on a trip with a burned-out brake light with an auto parts store in sight, but no BMW dealer anywhere around? Better yet, ever had the dealer sell you the wrong maintenance part (e.g. too small a crush washer for your gearbox drain)?

People have repeatedly mentioned various alternative parts for BMW bikes in the discussion threads. That information is so basic and so useful that I'd like to consolidate it into a permanent document for the M/C FAQ. This would be something you could reference before you go shopping for parts, and something you could conceivably print out (or save as a file on your PDA) as a handy repair reference if your bike should strand you in some faraway city.

If you have information on a part for your R-bike, please reply to this thread with the relevant details, such as size, model # and/or brand name (info for multiple brands would be great where possible). Example (for the few parts that I have in memory):

'99 RT

headlight replacement bulb:

Oil filter:
Mobil-1 M1-102

Spark plugs:
Bosch 4418
Denso Iridium (????)
Autolite (????)

brake light bulb:

brake pads:
front, EBC #FA246

Oil drain crush washer:
14 mm (don't trust that, I gotta go measure!)

Windscreen rocker replacement microswitch:
Burgess #F1NST8

I'm looking for info on any part you might want to replace while at home or on the road, for routine or irregular maintenance, such as:

crush washers
spark plugs
alternator belt (there was a thread on this recently)
light bulbs

After 2-3 weeks of collection, I'll cull the info and build a nice solid reference document.

NOTE: this thread is for R-bike information only; if you have K-bike information, please add it to this thread in the K-bike forum.

OK, fire away!

brake light bulb:

For R1100RT:
Brake light/turn signal bulbs: 7506
Tail light bulb: 5008

Fuel pump/horn/etc (BMW 61-36-1-393-412) relay can be replaced with NAPA AR614 relay although the NAPA part doesn't have the lugs to lock the relay in place.

Deutsch FF424 fuel filter

I've heard of replacing the fuel pump with a 4cyl Ford Mustang fuel pump (NAPA P74095), but I believe the OD is different and requires some shimming to mount it.

Oil filters:
FRAM PH6063 is the correct FRAM but hard to find at WallyWorld.
FRAM PH3614 is readily available and works
NAPA 1348

I put this together a few months ago, after I was sold the wrong crush ring. This is for the 1150RT, though will work with most:

Oil drain crush washer:
14 mm (don't trust that, I gotta go measure!)

BMW lists the oil drain as 16mm, transmission fill as 18mm, and the others(both final drive plugs and tranny drain) as 14mm.

Autolite (????)

For the 1100 RT the correct Autolite is #3923. Readily available every where and very cheap.

Mitchell, what a brilliant idea

The Hall Effect sensors for the Ignition sensor plate (R1100 series) are Honeywell 2av54. There are two but in all likelihood only one will have failed. Its likely the 1150 uses the same sensor, but as I havent seen one I cannot say for sure.
Available from in the UK or in the US

Can we please avoid the FRAM filters, read below and you wont want one in you bike or car

So...if you were really hard up for the tool to help you replace the rear main seal (65 X 85 X 7 (or 10)mm) and couldn't find one, you'd want to know that you could do it with a coke can, that had its end cut off?
