Tappet costs??

Our BMW dealer is closed for the next 2 days; been doing the 12k service and going to replace a valve tappet (2.85) with a 2.80. Anyone know what the $$ are for the new tappet??

Thanks,

Pretty cheap

I think that our dealer here in Portland charged me $14 and offered me 1/2 in exchange for the "bucket" that I had taken out.

I think the last ones I bought were around 22 bucks. No trade in.

Chuck,

If you go to the RealOEM.com parts list, then look up your bike (or enter your VIN), then go to Engine, then Valve Train, you'll see a listing for all the parts. The part number for a 2.80mm Cam Follower is 11327666048, and the estimated price is $15.62.

You can also look things up using the parts fiche at Max BMW which shows the same part number at $14.00, or at A&S BMW which gives part numbers but no prices.

For prices on any BMW parts by part number, check Chicago BMW who shows the Cam Follower at $14.00 retail, and $11.20 with their 20% discount.

I just bookmark these links, and I can find part numbers and prices in minutes.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Great info

Ken,
Thanks for the info. Just cleaned the grease/oil off my hands to fire up the laptop and surf around. Should have thought of that but; still musing over all of the parts on the garage floor. I'll save the links for future use.

And, they're called buckets. Might save you some snickering or confused looks.

They were around $22 in '00, but sometime after that BMW lowered the retail price to around $14. I paid something over $12 at my dealer with the club discount.

One of the dealers here in San Diego wouls swap them at no cost if they had take outs the correct size in their shop box.

Take your bucket with you and see if your parts manager will exchange the one you have with the one you need for free. They do at Grand Rapids, MI. The buckets don't wear much at all and sooner or later they'll need the size you exchanged. Normally, the service department will have a collection of buckets laying around. Worth a try.

Smile buckets

Stevo, I just finished putting it back together last night and fired her up with no problemo! Cams came in and out pretty easily. I could of gone with a slightly smaller bucket size but everything is in spec now and should not change much more. At least I have the confidence to do this to someone elses bike now! I like to try things on my bike first before someone elses.
I have a bunch of extra buckets because BMW of Atlanta has no exchange program. I did my 60k service including changing all the cam followers for 356.00 in parts and zero labor costs. Only cost me time. BMW had to order 7 followers for me but they came in within 4 days. Now I need to ride more.

Smile spare buckets

Ken, Steve,
I would think so. I have a bunch of 2.90 and 2.80 and one 2.85. At 12.60 each I have 201.30 in inventory! I wonder if I can write them off on my taxes??

Judging from the ones I have worked on, the 2.90 will likely have little call, more use for the 2,85, and very likely to need the 2.80. All the ones I have worked on seemed to come from the factory with 2.95, 2.90. and 2.85's. Since they normally always close up as the valve/seats wear, not likely to need 2.95's often if at all.

The last couple times I took my buckets to the dealer for swapping, they mentioned that they had PLENTY of 2.95's. They swapped them anyway though.
