Re: Weather protection (installation)

Post by SweRT »

Got a pm from a user if the kit was easy to install?
Piece of cake (even I managed to figure out without any instructions)
Have today also the Repair Manual DVD and checked if there was any information about installation of these part and what a surprise, yes.
Made some screen clips and copied them to one document, You are welcome

Hi SweRT', useful doc.  - add it to the `Downloads ' section for ease of future reference

Got the splash guards fitted to my bike today. The dealer did it free of charge, as these were the first they had done.
As you can see, I tested them in the rain and they worked a teat at keeping all the crud of our boots.

They look the `business'  surprised BMW didn't fit them as standard.    :whistle:

Hi Pope "As you can see, I tested them in the rain and they worked a teat at keeping all the crud of our boots".

Glad to hear that they did the work and that you were satisfied
Cheers

Picked up 95% of my parts today, still waiting for 5 washers and the M5x25 bolt (of which there are none BMW worldwide at the moment!)


Is it possible for someone to post a pic of this bolt so I can see the side profile of the head before I buy one from elsewhere?


M5x25 Body screw without collar 46638534939, it fits just above the right footpeg.


Cheers, Craig

Here you go, plus plastic washers, 4 all together
That bolt is already on the bike so its probably just a bit short.

Cheers matey ;-)




Edit 22/1, fitted my kit today with some 'non-bmw' bits as I'm still riding this time of year. The bike looks strange with them on, but better with the panniers on as well.
Thank you all for the idea, hints and tips. Great forum,
Craig.

Holy Moly! I just sourced the washers and bolt from Max BMW in the States and they wanted $61 for p&p!! :-\


I can only guess that's the DE to USA to UK shipping FFS!


For now I have an Allan key bolt in place and M8 Plastic washers. Just ordered some M7x12mm washers from Germany, not Beemer ones.


Still no reply from the screen debacle, it's been a week since I sent it back :-)
(I'm sure they're trying to stretch a tape measure from 605 to 681mm lol)

Started to put mine on today only to discover I was 3 plastic clamps missing.  Got the rear parts all on.  Takes about 30 minutes.  I have noticed the centre stand just touches it on the way up.  Anybody noticed the same ?

Any ideas why these kits are coming with parts missing.

Yep, Ordered one instead of four.  Think there must be a bit of a run on them.  They are supposed to be for authorities bikes, not us lesser mortals.

Think I agree with you, I must just remember not to look down. Hopeful they will do a good job of keeping the muck of me and the wife. If not its a skip job.
