So this saturday was spent in the garage with the Ipod and Flask.
It was a great day! Oil change, Oil and Air Filters, Spark Plug, topped up the Scottoiler, put the TT Front Mudguard back on due to the weather changing. Then gave the bike a quick clean over with some rags, re-greased the usual...
Couple of days ago I noticed my front axle clamp screw was missing! I had been riding without it, blissfully unaware, for god knows how long. But once I noticed it, I did not want to ride the bike until I replaced it. Neither SLM or Battersea had one in stock. As I was heading towards Battersea...
I want to give bike I just got a service 15.5k km
Should I use BMW Parts?

Break pads front and rear
Chain and front sprocket....it needs it

The time of year has arrived when my 04 GS needs its service especialy as it may even get an outing abroad.
Having only clocked up 5800 miles decided time to do 6000 mile service keep book stamped go to main dealer.Decided to call a couple of dealers for quote and available times in near future...
Phoned my local BMW dealer today for a quote for a 6k mile service.
£275!!! And, apparently, it may not need plugs or an air filter so they're not included in the price!
I guessed it would be quite high but thats mad!!!! 3 to 4 hours labour, oil and a filter, i reckon thats gotta be £50-60 per...
Yes, that's euros, not miles...
I recently emigrated to Germany, now resident in Berlin, a very nice city BTW, I recommend it.
Imported my bike last month, rode it from Glasgow to Newcastle, took the ferry to Amsterdam and thence rode up the very boring E30 to Berlin.
Hi, a couple of questions about costs if anyone can help.:
How much should a 12,000 mile dealer service cost on my '03 GS?
Where are the best places to get tyres at reasonable prices, and do you usually buy them and get them fitted elsewhere, or buy them from the fitter?
Just planning ahead...

Ok guys, now I really need you - yes, all of you! :not worthy:
So, I've stripped down my '00 GS and changed the head gasket, new valve shims, new (longer - anodised aluminium from a race engine company - have details if interested) oil return banjo bolt as I stripped some of the threads in the...
Just got this from BMW main dealer:
The cost of a 24,000ml inspection service on a 2002 model BMW F650CS
with all the options ,i.e.. valve clearance check, fuel filter change,
& drive belt change . totals £559.00 inc.vat

Crisp but dry run along the M53 this morning, bliss :-)
I am due my first service 600 miles (actually a bit over due), How much do you think this will cost me at a BMW dealer ?
Stripped the forks on my bike over the weekend and after cleaning i've noticed some pitting to the stanchions :-( , not much point in putting the new seals in now so need the address of a fork re-chroming company.
Anyone had any dealings with someplace they'd recommend?
Cheers (off to order...
That's what I've just been quoted by SLM :uhoh:
Now that surely can't be right and they've obviously mis-quoted me right :think: :-(
Now before anyone adds, I'd love to do it myself but given the bike is still in warranty I need to go down the dealer route (or do I???) - oh...
Anyone know of a good independent to do the 20,000 km service on a 95 F650? in Surrey, Hants, Berks area.
I just went in to Vines Guildford and I didn't realise quite how major this service is, they charge 286 pounds.
I am wondering if I should just do oil & air filters and change the oil...
You're probably getting as fed up with my bike as I am. I did the service about a month ago. It ran horrible but I had the plug leads on the wrong way round :doh:.
I still have the rattle at start up when the engine is cold. When turning over there is like a tick....tick...tick...
