    Any dealer.
    Bob's BMW.
    Hucky's.
    Maybe Beemerboneyard.

    Check out some of the Parts/Sales/Service links in the Resources and Links thread.

    I got a set from Max when I replaced them on my 86. Rusty had them in stock.

    I'm seeing the strainer sleeves (MAX's and Hucky's), but no "reserve" tubes. Did you find the tubes at MAX's?

    Petcock re-build kits are available from Bing, but they don't show the tubes as part of the rebuild kit.

    A quick call to Rusty would answer the question.

    I put the new ones on my 96 R80 rebuild, and I think you'll be happy with your decision. Given the age of your (our) bike, you might consider an in-line fuel filter down-line to further remove those pesky pieces of red tank lining...

    Mac from P -

    There is an edit button on the lower right of the screen...it's very helpful to fix the usual fumble fingers...I'm glad they have that feature.

    I think if you use in line filters, the screens are less important. Also, The Karcoma petcocks are completely re-buildable, unless they are damaged.
