Staintune Silencer and other things

Does anyone have any idea where I might find / buy / make a silencer for a 99 - 04 Staintune exhaust? I have read that the Staintune has a removable silencer, a screw on the bottom allows it to be secured or removed? Is that right? The exhaust I bought on fleabay did not come with a silencer. There is a hole on the bottom of the exhaust tip. I'm not sure if that is where the securing screw was located? Any ideas?

The other thing that's puzzling me is the rear wheel has a center hole, no cap, is that normal? I'd like to fill that hole with a cap, as well as all the other holes in the frame. Is there an inexpensive solution?

Last but not least is the myriad of bolts that are rusting on my bike. The disk carrier bolts are bad. The front axle bolt is bad. The caliper bolts are bad. And of course all the screws for the fairing are bad, those are just nicked and scratched. Is there a source for chrome bolts for all of the aforementioned? Or maybe I should just dip them all in acid and repaint with silver rattle can?

Yes there was a "plug" and sounds very nice with it in.

I have never been happier in my life, those Ohlin's are the best!! Sag was set perfect, then I found my favorite Rebound setting, and then wow oh wow oh wow, I found the perfect Compression setting. Smooth, predictable, taught, confidence inspiring... I just hang in the corners now, no worries. So much fun, such a joy!

Re: Staintune Silencer and other things

Remove the black coating off the fairing screws.Bench grinder with the wire wheel.

That will reveal the A2 markings on all the fairing screws.And if using a "soft" wheel will polish them OEM SS screws.

Re: Staintune Silencer and other things

My rear rim only has 4 lug nuts. Is that normal? I bought the bike used, it's only had 4 lug nuts. I noticed from some photos of your bikes that maybe there should be 5 lug nuts? The center hole in the rear rim on my bike is empty. I just looked at MaxBMW's microfiche and it indicated 5! What's up?

OMG. All I did was look up the torque spec. With only 4 bolts it wasn't rocket science to tighten in a criss-cross pattern. I can't believe it. OK, I feel like an idiot, after all I DO have the Clymer! Uggh.....

Re: Staintune Silencer and other things

Wheel didn't fall off.....you are fine.Older Paralevers only had 4 bolts anyway.

Back to the rusting fasteners? My rear wheel bolts tend to rust.Not much of the thin plating left on them.

Rub & buff with? Go read in Mr.Quiltzig thread on restoring an old 98 first.
