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.

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.

Actually, BMW calls them Cam Followers. Most mechanics I know just say bucket.

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.

I asked my local dealer two weeks ago and the service manager told me that they were about $15 a piece.

Depends on whether your bike is on the Continent or not, I suppose. :)

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.
