This is my first thread, so if I mess up in some way please let me know. I purchased a 96' R 1100 RTL ( the L I am told means it has a BMW radio/cassett) in Nov 2003. The radio was supposed to come with a special "removal tool" that allows the radio to be quickly removed. The tool looks like two u-shaped coat hangers connected by a chain. I have tried two BMW dealers , and both have said the part is no longer available. Several days ago I was checking out A&S (Roseville, CA) for goodies for my bike and I found a listing for the radio for about $800. I called them and they said it came with the part I need, but the "removal tool" is still not available as a seperate item. Any suggestions as to where I might find ths item? My real intent is to sell the radio and all the handelbar contols at a fair price, but I think i would have a better chance if I can find a "removal tool". Thanks in advance ro the help.
