BMW G450X RESOURCE O-N-L-Y thread
« on: January 28, 2015, 04:03:31 pm »
Hi WD's - this is a resource thread, not a buy & sell thread.

Idea is to list whatever you have ADDITIONAL for these bikes that is either not currently ON the bike, or not needed.

...then indicate if you would consider selling it now/future, or not.
If not, then the purpose would be to maybe PHOTOGRAPH a sought-after part, to help out someone looking for it.

So to be clear - no prices should be listed - it is a RESOURCE page!

I'll start.

ZEBRA: would sell:
2 x as-new mirrors, complete.
Possibly ANOTHER set of as-new mirrors, complete (I may fit folding mirrors)
L/H front panel, with decals (2008/2009 design) near-new condition
R/H front panel, with decals (2008/2009 design) near-new condition
Number-board left hand side, good condition
Front wheel cover (BMW description!) new/unused
1 x white upper nose-piece, that clips onto top of mudguard - new/unused
1x slip-on silencer, very good condition, louder than stock
1 x OEM slip-on silencer, very good condition.

If there is more, will UPDATE this list

Zebs - can you make this a sticky? Can it include a 'Desperately Seeking' angle?

I am looking for an Akro or Remus header pipe.

OK, I have made it a 'Sticky' ; good suggestion.

I will listen out for a REMUS or AKRA pipe for you (2nd hand) we sell both brands (new), will find out a price, if we can

Cheers

I am looking for the OEM rear shock spring. If you threw yours out and replaced it with a stiffer one please let me know.

maybe try JOHNSnr, on this forum, ex Hamman Motorrad dealership, quite a few G450X parts in stock, he MAY have one?

otherwise two people on Gumtree breaking up G450X's; make them an offer for the part you need...

Did you break the brass part or the plastic clip part? I replaced both my fan temperature switch and the temperature sensor last year when trying to diagnose a hot starting issue. I now have a spare Coolant temperature sensor (part number 7) if you needed that one. I replaced my Fan/over-temperature switch (part number 8 ) with one that will turn the fan on at 75 degrees celcius as the standard one only causes the fan to come on at 90 degrees. I picked up the Fan/over-temperature switch from Midas for around R100, think its a standard VW or BMW part, just take it to Midas and ask the guys there to help you.

LANC, what a legend you are!!!!!!!! I popped down to Midas and they do stock the part for a BMW Motorcar actually. I popped the new part in and ran the bike for a few minutes and the fan popped on. Thanks for the great advice, more importantly i dont have to wait for a part from Germany now and can ride after work today.

Again big thank you, beers on me when we ride together one day!

R300, about half that at BMW. The price wasnt really the issue, not riding for 3 weeks was my problem, but all sorted now:)

Chaps, any suggestion where to find replacement rear flickers? I put the bike down at some stage and broke it off in the bush.

we may be able to help you with FLUSH mount flickers, which then do not break off in future drops, but we ARE battling with one of our supplier to get stock...
