    I gave the parts lady the exact part number I copied down from A&S microfiche. She typed it into her system and said that part is no longer available. I ordered the Mehler one off amazon along with some Bosch plugs. It's all good, I hope...

    Straps over the rafters attached to the rear frame or a sawhorse type support for the rear frame.

    She goofed, unless you gave here the wrong number.

    I just checked. There are 307 of them in the US warehouses (not counting what are on dealer shelves. Our dealer has 6.) and 2935 in the German warehouse with more on order.

    That filter is used on virtually every BMW bike (except airheads and Rotax) from 1982 to 2004. They are not going to discontinue that.

    Is that something normal humans can check? (I'm a bit miffed with my nearest dealer at the moment, who has nothing in stock and wants me to buy something else at twice the price instead. But that's for another thread.)

    Meanwhile, is there any reason *not* to use the $5 NAPA 3032?

    Check this thread:

    As for looking up parts numbers and such I spend a good amount of time on Max BMW's online parts pages.

    Is there a good site with part compatibility charts?
    Here's a motobrick thread with lots of substitutions for various parts: http://www.motobrick.com/index.php?topic=1563.0

    That's where I get parts info too (although I've found pricing is not always consistent across dealers - some have notably higher or lower prices on individual items).

    But Lee appears to have a source for very specific availability information. I'm wondering if that is available to mere mortals.
