What I can remember after decades of working with BMW motorcycles
Special work tools for BMW motorcycles
by Duane Ausherman
This article applies to the /5 and later bikes. Some of it applies to the /2 also.
BMW used Matra tools. About 1/3 were not needed, another 1/3 were of poor design, and the rest were either total junk or very good. Ed Korn made far better tools. Ray Bunch made the best that I have ever seen.
Shown below are pages from Capital Cycle offering tools.
At this late date of 2019, this page is only useful as a history lesson, or identify unknown tools.
