I have a little bit of weeping (I know probably normal and I am not worried) but that is not my question

Should there be a zip tie on both ends of the boot?

There is only a tie on the larger end.

Before I zip tie the other end (there is an open space as it is not tight) I wanted to ask

 

thanks

Sal, my 02 1150RT has a zip tie on both ends of the boot.. Possibly BMW made a running change but the 02 uses one each end..

My R has two metal "hose clamp" style straps but the 2000 RT came with one metal and one "cable tie". The two are different lengths and I replaced my one cable tie with the metal clamp for better weep control thumbsup.gif

 

Expect to pay (a LOT) more for the metal clamp though...

I don't believe in paying the 'big bucks' for a o-fi-shul BMW part, so I used a cable tie. I couldn't find a real long one anywhere in my garage, so I just used two ties zipped together. I've done it twice in the last 30,000 miles, and it seems to work just fine.
