ok
2006 K1200GT

I have had the front axle off many times to change tires and I remember some bits like a dust cover or spacers fall off when i pulled the axle out.

well a couple years ago...yeah I don't wear tires fast...I had my suspension replaced by The Beemer Shop in Scotts Valley, CA. Have traveled many a mile since...thousands.

So I go to take the front wheel off for a new tire and when I do....no spacers/dust cover.

Drives me nuts...was I imagining these things?

I check the Bob'sBMW parts list with blow-up of the front and...nothing. No mention of the parts I remember.

Do any of you know of what I speak?????:surprise

Could you be thinking of the pinch bolt? There is a small pinch bolt that you must loosen before you can unscrew the axle.

I suppose you MIGHT be able to get the axle out without loosening the pinch bolt, but I doubt it. (DAMHIK - I broke a BMW axle removal tool once, when I forgot to loosen the pinch bolt.)

No....it was ON the axle...a dust cover almost like a a top hat look, light metal on the right and a washer of sorts on the left.
