Does anyone know whether the spring clips that slide over the disc pad retaining pin can be sourced
other than buy purchasing from BMW the "pin, rattle plate, and spring clip) sold as one item at the
bargain price of $46 AUD?

Ie. I am wanting just the spring clip... see photo
Microphone Audio equipment Font Eyelash Electronic device

Yes it seems like the Harley V-rod has the same caliper system but parts unavailable in Oz from Harley dealers. But thanks for the heads up.

Probably to the Bermuda Triangle that every garage/driveway has.
One of mine somehow went astray while I had the pads out - I bent up a ‘new’ one from some springy steel wire I happened to have. It’s just a security clip in case the pin somehow works loose (not tightened properly) so it doesn’t need to be absolutely identical.

A fair question. Doubt it came off while riding and doubt even more I didn't replace it when cleaning calipers. There is a third possibility, which is... those clips are easily removed by hand.

Damn…if some scoundrel purposely removed that clip without your knowledge, the universe should direct some very bad karma their way.
