So owning a discontinued bmw bike has its disadvantages, and this is one of them. BMW parts are not often cheap or good value, but do any of you know a place where u can get them in NZ for not too much, particularly bikes that are no longer being made?

Ooh, you have an XC? I am considering shipping mine over from South Africa, but I am a bit concerned since it has basically every Touratech mod on it that was available. Long range tank and rallye fairing were the big ones. Great bikes, pity BMW stopped making them.August 2, 2018 at 10:20 pm #27305SeanParticipant

My 99 f650 rear light was playing up. Discovered the socket had worn over the years and no amount of tinkering with the contacts would fix it.
I could get a whole unit from usa for around $70 landed. But thought kiwi enjinuity would win the day.
I got a new baton holder from sca $8.99.
Used my Dremel to widen the existing hole and slotted it in. I put on some spade connectors and tested they worked.
Then i used my hot glue gun to hold it in place.
One rear light all sorted.
If i could work out how to post a few pics i would.
Next thing is to work out what the spare wire with ring connector is for under my seat.
