Oilhead misc parts

December 5, 2008

As you’ve probably seen already, parts directly from BMW are expensive and there’s a delay between the moment when you need it and the moment when you have it. Therefore the guys at bmwsporttouring.com established a coprehensive list of alternate or original parts that will work on your bike, be it for regular maintenance or emergency repairs.

Changing the rear drive oil

November 29, 2008

Yet another “R” tutorial 😀 Well, it’s understandable from my point of view, I really love the R engine. As I see it, I would recomend changing it while you do the engine oil change, just to be on the safe side, but most people do it at every other oil change. But if you’re already soacked in oil, why not do it? It’s only about 20E/liter. Just basic maintenance procedure.
