    Resources and Links

    The following is a collection of websites and forum posts (here and elsewhere) which offer resources to answer those burning questions about your BMW motorcycle! Most of these links focus on the Airhead model (1970 through 1995), but there are links to general areas as well.

    No endorsement by the BMWMOA is offered in the presentation of these links. They are provided for consideration and general reading to provide more detailed information about our motorcycles. The reader should consider all information here, on the forum and the internet, and make his/her own decision about the appropriateness of what is presented. Always consult a professional or skilled mechanic before embarking on major repairs to your motorcycle.

    These links and resources have been compiled from various individuals in the BMW community. We solicit your input to other resources deemed to be useful for understanding and maintaining our motorcycles. If you have a suggestion for inclusion in this list, send a Private Message (PM) to me or any other moderator. Your suggestion will be reviewed and considered for inclusion.

    Every effort will be made to ensure that the following links are active. However, since the web and links are an ever changing environment, links may be modified or deleted by their owners. If you should find one of the following links to be inactive or have changed, please let one of the moderators know by way of a PM. The links will be updated as necessary.
