    Found this on the shop floor. What is it?

    3CF325FE-0C6D-48CB-987B-DF9A38357370.jpg

    It could be from one of four bikes recently in my shop.
    2001 R1150GS.
    1987 K75S
    2008 R1200RT
    R1200GS

    I know, that covers a lot of ground, but it would be nice to know where it came from and get it back on the bike.
    Thanks in advance.

    It goes between the fork tube and front fender on an 04 RT and probably many other models.

    The cheapest thing on a BMW is the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

    front fender spacer

    I responded to your oilhead thread. It looks just like a front fender spacer.

    Hmmm.
    Hasnít been an oilhead RT in my shop for a few years. Oilhead GS, but the fender wasnít off for a tire change.
    I looked on the parts fiche and that bushing looks to be without a shoulder, but itís hard to tell.
    Iím not saying youíre wrong. Still cogitating.

    I was thinking it might be a piece from K75S instrument cluster mount. Had a box of the clusters in the shop until recently makin one good one from 3 bad ones.
    Maybe Iíl go to my buddyís house and check. Itís his bike.

    FYI, it’s 19mm long and 10mm in diameter. The flange is 12mm. An M6 bolt fits in it nicely.

    I think the fiche has it at 24.5mm it I read it correctly.

    Mystery solved!

    AKbeemer and some others were really close.
    It's a bushing that goes in a K100 instrument mount.
