5mm bolt that connects the starter to the gear box is missing causing the load shed relay to chatter at RPMs above 4500. Can anyone tell the part number for this bolt? Also with the bolt missing any danger to the starter shifting around and causing damage to the gear box?

Thanks
Joe

Bobs BMW has Microfiche parts files of BMW Motorcycles.
At least that is what the ad says on the back of BMW ON magazine this month.

You could most probably find what you need there.

Thanks for Bob's Info found the part #07119901496. I admire anyone who can get a 5mm hex wrench on the bolt enough to tighten it. Going in for a 12K service so the Tupperware and gas tank will come off. Hopefully that will give enough room to get a wrench on the bolt.

Rovero--I had that bolt come loose...if you take the gas tank off, the battery out and the left lower skirt of the tupperware you can gain access. You will need to take the corresponding allen wrench and cut the short end in half...still not a lot of room to navigate but it can be done. I think operating the bike with it unbolted could hurt the gears and shaft. Good luck, I hope you don't loose too much riding time.
