BMW airhead points adjusting tool. Fit's all /5, /6, /7 BMW's with
original type points. This tool temporarily replaces the advance
mechanism. It automatically sets the proper cam lobe spacing.
With the advance mechanism out the way it is much easier to
get at the points and the screws. You can then easily set the
points using the attached feeler gauge. Then just remove the
gauge and replace the advance mechanism. Makes setting
points simple, easy and almost like fun. Price listed includes
feeler gauge and instructions. Does not fit 79-80 models with
points in the can.

BMW Airhead Carb. Sync. Adapters, These adapters are to
help you use the spark plug shorting method to synchronize
your carbs. The plug shorting method is by far the most
accurate method for syncing your carbs as it takes all factors
into account and not just vacuum. These come with
complete easy to understand directions. In addition to the
adapters all you will need are two long plastic handled
screwdrivers. This method of syncing carbs does take a little
practice to get the coordination down. Once you've practiced
your airhead will be running better than ever.
These adapters will work on any BMW airhead, points or
electronic ignition. They provide very secure attachment
which is what is needed on the electronic igniton models.

BMW airhead alternator, generator, magneto rotor removal

warning. Puller is machined from a 80 to 90mm hardened 8.8
metric bolt. In answer to some recent questions, the BMW

BMW Airhead Clutch Alignment Tool This is a redesign of
this tool. One end is for pre 1981 airheads and the other
post 1981. In my experience the early version would work
fine on later bikes though sometimes requiring a 2nd try.

your clutch parts so the transmission splines will fit
properly when assembled. Tool is machined from quality

BMW Airhead Exhaust Nut Wrench, This is the wrench you need to
remove the exhaust flange nuts on your type 246-247 airhead from
1969-1995. This wrench fits all airheads from /5 large nuts, the nuts
on the r65 and ALL others. REPEAT ALL BMW AIRHEADS!!! Wrench
is laser cut from 3/8" steel and zinc plated. Wrench will prove to be
more durable then the cast wrenches that are out there. Approx. 13"
Removing the exhaust nuts, cleaning up the threads on them and the
heads and renewing the anti seize should be once a year
maintenance. Failure to do so can lead to the nut seizing on the head,
requiring you to cut the nuts off or worse you can strip the threads on
the head which requires removing the head and having the threads
replaced by welding or with a sleeve.
Last I saw Bob's BMW wants $49.95 for a cast wrench! I think this one
works better and is for sure stronger.
Don't buy half a wrench!! Buy one with a handle.
The wrench fits onto the nuts from the front and moves back into the
fins. $29.00 + $7.50 postage
Replacement exhaust nuts on maintenance parts page.
Hints on removing nuts on tech page, read before you goof up!!!

The BMW tool is over $40.00!
Includes torque adjustment formula * Driveshaft bolts
available on parts page.

This is a wheel tube to help remove and adjust wheel
bearings in /2's, /5's and /6's I believe. They match up
with the BMW tools and can be had in 54mm, 44mm

lengths. These are machined square on the ends.

Crankshaft Blocking Bolt
This is a small nylon bolt that I've cut to length and modified the
end. Jammed into your rotor mounting allen bolt head and with
the generator cover put back on and snugged up it will block
your crankshaft when you remove the flywheel and clutch etc.
The generator cover bolts will not be able to be tightened all the
way up and that's the idea the pressure is on the crank. You can
jury rig something like this yourself. Like many of my tools this
is a convenience to save you time and headscratching
