    NGK Plug caps for R90S

    Tried searching for NGK and NGK cap but surprisingly didn't turn up an answer.

    Does anyone know the NGK part number and a source for NGK caps for my 1974 R90S ?

    I believe I ordered my NGK caps and wires from Bob's BMW. I would think that any BMW dealer that deals in airhead parts would probably have them.

    I wouldn't think so because they're not original equipment parts.


    Comprehensive source for BMW electrics is http://www.euromotoelectrics.com

    See specifically http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/category-s/39.htm

    Ideally you'd need the 5Kohm caps if you had straight low-resistance wires. Just go to Parts Unlimited catalog and search for 5K, 90-degree caps. Our shop sells them, usually about $5 each.

    The NGK caps I ordered for the R60/5 are 1 Ohm (points) and for the R65LS 5 Ohm (electronic ignition points)

    90?? caps (LB05F)
    45?? caps (VB05F)

    the 05 designates 5Ω

    $2.50-3.50 each at most bike shops

    $20 for a set with wires from euromoto ... buy 'em.
