Thread: Tire pressure sticker

  1. #1

    Tire pressure sticker

    I have a 1974 Bmw r90/6. I am trying to find out what tire pressure sticker it had originally, right now it has none. The guy at Heritage stickers is not exactly sure which one it was. I believe it is either a black and white sticker or a blue and white. Also I have seen them in pictures on the seat pan and the rear fender, but not sure which is correct either. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    FWIW, here's the sticker on my '78 /7...it's on the top side of the rear fender hump under the seat. It's definitely black.

    I'm going to order the set from Heritage; my /5 was repainted by a PO and the stickers are all gone. Where do the various stickers belong?

    On my 71 R60 the stickers were on the seat. I put new decals in the same spot after restoration. Denfeld decal was at the front of seat. I was able to reuse
    that one.

    On the two /5s, the sticker was on the underside of the seat. On my /7, the sticker is on the fender. Sure would be nice if someone with a /6 could show us where their sticker is!

    I just peeled one off an original paint fender from a 1975 R 60/6 this past weekend. It was located, centered, just about at the very top of the curve (12 noon) with the fender mounted. I was readable as you stood on the left side of the bike with the seat lifted.

    I think I have another one up in the loft that hasn't been touched if you really need a picture.

    Heritage offer both for /5's; the all black version, and the blue & white. Perhaps BMW used both at one time or another?

    Seems strange that no one has come up with the blue one installed on a bike. I wonder if maybe the blue one was used for non-US bound bikes.
