Hi John,

I'd go for BMW ones. Call Motorworks in the UK with the dimensions and see what they have.
I once fitted a non original BMW rubber (the swingarm-gaitor) on my R80 and i got 4 years out of it. Putting an original BMW-one on, now having learned, it still is perfect after 12 years.

Hi John,

They couldn't help you? Odd and not very customer friendly.
A German company called "Motorrad Stemler" sell 10 types of gaitors. It's in their list "Adler to Zundapp" on their website. Worth a look.
I've bought many parts there in the past, always very good services.
