LC service intervals.
« on: July 21, 2014, 08:25:04 am »
Who noticed the  two interesting things about the service intervals for the R1200GS K50?

The first service is called the "running-in" service and can be done anywhere between 500 and 1200km, i.e. not the very specific 1000km as previously.

Normal services listed in the manual is just an annual service with the rider that if you ride more extensively than expected, in between services should be decided between yourself and your service advisor.  Obviously, whatever you discuss with the service advisor, he would suggest 10 000km which makes sense, but interesting wording by BMW.

interesting just looked it up in the Rider's Manual (US Model) K51
R 1200 GS Adventure

BMW Running-in Check
The BMW running-in check
must be carried out between
300 mls (500 km) and 750 mls
(1200 km).


BMW Service
BMW Service is carried out once
a year. The scope of the services
performed may be dependent
on the vehicle owner
and the mileage driven. Your
BMW Motorrad retailer confirms
that the service has been performed
and enters the date for
the next service.
For riders who drive long distances
annually, it may be necessary
to come in for service before
the entered date. In this case a
corresponding maximum odometer
reading will also be entered in
the confirmation of service. If this
odometer reading is reached before
the next service date, service
must be performed sooner.
The service display in the multifunction
display reminds you of
the next service date approx. one
month or 620 miles (1000 km)
before the entered values.

Hi Andre,

I have the Repair and Service Data DVD which contains the service manual for the LC.

It lists the following:

Oil change in engine with filter (for maintenance)   Annually or every 10,000km
Oil change in rear bevel gears                    every two years or every 20,000km
Checking valve clearance (for maintenance)      every 20,000km
Replace all spark plugs (for maintenance)      every 20,000km
Replace air filter cartridge (for maintenance)      every 20,000km
Checking or replacing air filter element                    For off-roading
Changing brake fluid, front brakes                 initially after one year, then every two years.
Changing brake fluid, rear brakes                 initially after one year, then every two years.

Corrie

Waar het jy die gekry Corrie?
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

just saying - if you have a BMW (or another decent bike) and are NOT doing more than 10 000 a year, then you don't deserve that bike.
