    Ditto this.

    You would be surprised how inexpensive they are here! Great service too!

    You can ask any electrical question and the person will take the time to help you without making you feel stupid or pressing you to purchase!

    Just like Max's BMW - great people!

    Somewhere there is a list of alternative parts for airheads but can't seem to find it right now. If you have a small diode laying around and know how to soler ... Here is one guy's solution to the expensive OEM part. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...1&postcount=96

    If it were me I would just go ahead and buy this one for $13.50 : http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/product-p/rel-207.htm

    I looked on their website and did not see anything, ...
    They are in the "chassis" section.. ... .

    BMW p/n: 61 31 1 243 207 = Bosch p/n 0 332 019 151
    12v, 30A, continuous duty relay

    Or google the part number.

    MAXBMW, $27.50)

    Motorad Electrik; $20.00 (Probably the same part)

    EuroMoto Electrics: $13.50 > http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/product-p/rel-207.htm

    Texas Industrial Electric: $12.75 > http://www.texasindustrialelectric.c...0332019151.asp

    Not seeing any "brick & mortar" places to pick one up though.

    For future reference, the Alternate Parts list is in the Link & References section at the bottom of the "Garage" forum. See Resources & Links > http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...rces-and-Links

    Problem is, the link to the Airheads Index page (for relays) is no longer valid...... . Kurt

    One of the first things to learn about Airhead ownership is they don't have parts for them down to PepBoys or NAPA.

    You can't force American culture on these bikes.

    One of the first things to learn about Airhead owners is they are frugal (cheap) we are always looking for a less expensive route

    I've gotten away with it a several times over the 39 years I've owned my /5; the voltage regulator (NAPA Borg-Warner R588) being the last one. Along the way,ceramic fuses, and an oil pressure switch from Autozone (Wells Mfg. Corp. PS 102).

    A "brick & mortar" places to pick one up would include a local BMW dealer ... if there was one.
