Fuel Valve, Everbest Dual Outlet
R50, R60, R69 models
The Everbest fuel valves were original equipment on Post War models through about the mid 1970's. The originals were prone to leakage and consequently, because no replacement parts were available in prior years, many were tossed and replaced with the newer Karcoma fuel valves. If you own one of these bikes, then no matter how painstakingly restored or original it might be, without an Everbest fuel valve, it's not quite period correct. While the later model fuel valves work just fine, these have the classic appearance and belong on the older models.
The Original Everbest fuel valves were made by a company called EVEGA in Nuremberg. Karkoma (then Karco-Armaturenwerk) purchased EVEGA in 1962 and continued to supply BMW throughout the period when the above models were built. This is a top quality reproduction with seals made of modern materials that will last for years
