I've been trying to source a 2nd replacement rear wheel for my (2002 - possibly built 2001) R 1150RS.
Frame No: WB10447A02 ZG51279.
The Part Number my wheel is 2 331 and then a blank raised oval.
My BMW dealer was unwilling to advise but sent me to https://www.realoem.com/bmw/ where the VIN leads me to a P/N 36 31 2 331 692.
Various breakers on eBay have visually similar rear wheels - mainly with a P/N 2 331 357.
However, one has an app in their eBay page. This allows the item to be checked against the model and year of bike. Entering my bike details gives - "This item doesn't fit BMW R 1150 RS 2002".
Does anyone know how many of the digits determine the part (some, last 3?, may just indicate a casting number)?
If any wheel with 2 331 would be suitable - how come the compatibility app indicates NOT suitable?
It's causing me no end of headaches - what started as a Sunday puncture, morphed into the wheel also having been penetrated and now - the replacement seems shrouded in mystery.
I e-mailed Motorrad UK - who suggested I take my "car" to one of their dealers. This seemed to indicate a profound lack of engagement with the query.
