Bobs BMW online parts microfiche

Hi Guys,
Anybody else finding that Bobs BMW new website is not as good as their old one?

I am looking at it via an iPad in my workshop and it is missing a whole heap of info and is nowhere near as good as the old site. Am I missing something here?

Looking for fuel tank internals info -fuel gauge sender etc, and all they have is the authority style fuel tank for a K75.

Thanks in advance for your opinions.

I always use MAX-BMW parts fiche - they are one of the 1st to have implemented it in USA (a long time ago) and it is pretty rock solid (browsing and ordering).

Normally for USA market models, you start from the base page and select your model.
https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/PartsFiche.aspx

IMPORTANT: if your bike was not originally sold for USA market, MAX_BMW always suggest to use the last 7 digits of your VIN to make sure you get the exact / correct parts fiche. You enter this just below the long horizontal bar near top.

Re: Bobs BMW online parts microfiche

Ive used Maxs parts fiche for over 6 years now, and it was always very good. The question I have just relates to the latest version where they have the shopping cart directly from the fiche.

Re: Bobs BMW online parts microfiche

Just found that Bobs parts fiche works on a desktop PC as normal, but does not work well at all on mobile devices. That explains my issue last weekend.
