I am hoping some can tell me were to find these clips.

Change the brakes over the weekend. Clips look bad.

Would like to get another set, before the next change.

I found some in the McMaster Carr catalog but you gotta buy 100 of 'em!! Did not see them in the BMW catalog. I would say in a pinch you could use a piece of bailing wire that would fit through the hole. Not ideal. Check your local Ace hardware. They have them but I don't know about how small they go.

It is hard to tell from the diagram in the online "fiche", but it appears it may be this part number 34 11 2338250 at a cost of $2.97. I am not sure if the price is for one or the pair. I recently bought a bleeder screw for my clutch and the diagram for the screw didn't suggest that it came with the rubber cover so I ordered one of those also. Well, I now have a spare bleeder cover...

All these clips do is hold the pins in place, to keep them from backing out. If the ones you have go into the holes, and if they are snug enough to not fall out, they are good to go. There is no pressure on them- in this case, I think it's safe to safe "Size doesn't matter!" Within reason, of course.

Thanks, I kind of thought that was the case.

Will keep tiring to find the right thickness.

I used safety wire on both my KTM and BMW.
