    anyone try the non-OEM peanut valve covers?

    ...currently listed on fleabay as made in Germany but not BMW parts?...good used ones are so hard to find, but always dubious of knock-off parts...

    Yes, I have a pair installed on my R100, '77 .

    Excellent fit and finish, very happy with it.

    Mating surface was flat (<<.002),

    I bought the ones without the studs as I used my own screws to hold it to the head. Those on evil-bay appear to have the stud.

    I like them much more than the black painted covers from the factory.

    Have you checked at Airhead Salvage?

    MaxBMW shows them for $111...even shows some "blemished" ones for $80. BMW Hucky's for about the same.
