Hello,

Yesterday evening I typed everything a bit too fast <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

I am no longer able to 'edit' my message so...

plastic hose clamp is 33.17-2 335 139
final drive pivot bearing is 33.17-2 311 091

Finally takes one 'n' and two 'l'
I meant 'those parts' instead of 'this' and 'these' instead of 'this' in my last sentence

We talked about doing this some time back and decided since the IBMWR site already HAS such a list it would be better to add/update theirs rather than make a new copy. The folks who managed that FAQ were more than willing to have the help.

FYI.

The IBMWR list is pretty thorough for airheads and older K-bikes, but they've got a pretty short list for oilhead parts (and recent K-bikes).

Unless there's another list there I didn't see?

It's short, some parts are multi-use. Just seemed that rather than have two, why not help update the one. My understanding was that the only reason Sam didn't have more oilhead stuff on the list is because he didn't have the info to put there. Plugs were covered in a Lentini article.

It's your call. Personally I'd rather see one updated source, rather than two. If nothing else, maybe a link from there to here.

I reckin' Sam's been ridin' a lot lately. I sent him this info six or eight months ago and, last I looked, it still wasn't on the IBMWR site list:

After a year or so of on-again, off-again searching, I finally found a replacement Bosch O2 sensor for my `94 R1100RSA at considerably less than the BMW part.

A friendly AutoZone employee worked with me to find an identical 4-wire replacement Bosch #13474. Best price I found on the BMW part at a BMW dealer was ~$180. Picked up the #13474 at AutoZone for ~$60.

BONUS! My mileage had been around 45 mpg avg for quite a while. With the new sensor (79,000 miles), it has climbed to 48 mpg avg over the 1000 or so miles since the installation.

BTW, Bosch recommends oxygen sensor replacement for preventative maintenance at the following intervals:
Unheated O2 sensors on 1976 to early 1990s application: every 30,000 to 50,000 miles.
Heated (1st generation) O2 sensors on mid-1980's to mid-1990's applications: every 60,000 miles.
Heated (2nd generation) O2 sensors on mid-1990s and up applications: every 100,000 miles.

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




A word here: First, I think BMW may be wrong, and second, there may be a diffference between 1100s and 1150s.

All I know is that when I did my service, I got the wrong crush rings from the dealer because their parts fiche was wrong. On MY tranny and Final drive, at least, I need two 14mms and two 18mms. For sure. I'm not near the bike right now (sniff!), but as I recall both the tranny plugs, drain and fill, took the 18s.

It's a tiny thing, but it can bring the ol' servicing drill to a "crushing" halt (unless you reuse a crush ring, as I had to). I also noticed that my tranny drain did NOT have a magnet as my old R1100RS did, and therefore I think was a larger bolt (18), not the 14 for the older bikes.

Or perhaps I just got the one that was different...

I think it's a 1100 vs 1150 thing. I was replying to Mitchell who also has an 1100. I'm pretty sure I only use one of the 18's. The 1150 may well need 2.

I can confirm your experience with crush washer sizing on the 1150. I have two 18mm crush washers on the trans, two 14mm crush washers on the rear end, and the normal 16mm crush washer on the engine oil drain plug
