No more rusty bolts, easy to clean and maintain. It is most important to coat all threads with copper grease or molybdenum disulphide grease and not overtighten it. Contain 185 to 245 items, depending on the model.

Please indicate your bike's model, year, frame and engine number when ordering.


BMW R2v /5 Series stainless steel side panels

Originally introduced by BMW as an option for the later BMW R2v /5 Series and standard equipment for some USA models, these were not overly popular, not least in Europe where the BMW riders' taste was somewhat more conservative.

These side panels are high quality stainless steel stampings, accurate replicas of the original albeit without the black painted stripes.

These fit exactly as per the originals (a rubber band and the four tankgs on the rear sub-frame, often missing). Very cool and period looking!
