Parts purchase at BMW Motorcycle dealer

Just wondering if anyone had tried purchasing 2002 parts from a BMW Motorcycle dealer?

I wanted some of the M10x25 bolts for the brake rotors and noticed that the part number was used on a 06-12 F800's fork slider(??). Called over to the local BMW motorcycle parts place (much closer than the BMW car dealer), got the bolts on order and while I them on the phone, inquired about ordering car parts.

I tested with the brake rotor number. They said they can get it.

I haven't actually ordered any car specific parts yet.

Not so much from the dealership, but I've raided either my '02 parts bin or R-bike parts bin in the garage for opposing parts as needed. I think you'll find the bike parts are more expensive though. The flasher in my R100RS is from the '02 - same Bosch part but about $20 less as I recall. Oil pressure sending units interchange as well.

depends on the part , and part number as to

if a CAR or BIKE dealer can order

the other's parts.

The dealer franchise agreement / BMW Parts

Gods - protects one from the other being

able to do so. Think about it from a business

standpoint. Can you buy your HONDA CBX parts

parts at your Honda Civic store? = No.

So the exception is the common hardware bits

like all the special 02 nuts/bolts/fasteners in

general you could probably get through your Bike dealer.

Special car only parts you will not. Supply your own

part numbers for better service.

Probably 5 - 8 years a go it was possible

to get any M/C part though my CAR dealer.

Not Any More.

NOT from your bike dealer:

I know this is completely of topic but after seeing some pics of your car what did you use to replace the rubber strips around the big bumper? I was thinking about doing this to my car.

no change to the rubber strips - just bumper shortening

kit (Race TEP) for the front. Cut and bond the front accordian rubbers

as needed. no change to the rear bench seat

That's a good question. It's been about 8 or 9 years since I did the rebuild. As I recall I used some heavy duty black rubber kick strip that you see in office buildings along the base of the wall. I probably found it at Lowe's by the roll, and I recall trimming it to the same size as the indention on the bumper. Those bumper inserts are a ridiculously heavy part of the DOT '74-'76 bumpers. Other than trimming the metal along the top inside of the rear bumper to fit the contour of the rear panel, it's pretty much standard bumper shortening exercise as C.D. mentioned.

My post above makes no sense after re-reading the original question.

Actually, Honda may have been a bad example. :)

In Saskatoon (not sure about any where else in Canada), the whole Honda line is under one roof.

Car, 'trucks', bikes, quads, snow blowers, mowers, and probably some other things I can't remember are in one spot.

They pulled the bike/quads from one of the bike dealers (they picked up BMW after that happened)

One day I'll see if they can bring in a car part.
