Many thanks Brian and everyone for all your help. I finally got the bearing carrier out and it was the pin as you thought Brian, somehow it had worked its way loose. The whole area does seem original and nothing had moved so I tapped the pin back in and filled the space with solder and used a centre punch to crimp the end over that I reckon it should work ok. The parts I ordered arrived today which once again is amassing. You all rock over there. I ordered a Clymers manual with the order, you informed me Brian that it was out of stock and you had them on a back order. Could you send me one when you get them in. Once again many thanks and kind regards to you all in the west.
The level of customer service and capability your team have shown is rare to find in any business these days
I just thought I’d take a moment to thank the whole team at Munich for your great service over the last couple of months. The level of customer service and capability your team have shown is rare to find in any business these days, and I look forward to working with you allot more over the years. Bruce in particular has been absolutely amazing to work with, and his knowledge of your products and BMW motorcycles has assisted me in quickly solving every engineering difficulty with confidence throughout the restoration of this BMW R80 G/S.
