BMW Service/Repair Data

Big file, but very handy if you're into servicing your own BMW - something i plan to do now the warranty has expired.

I can see the benefits of doing some light service work but I would imagine there are some stuff that you should leave to the professionals right?
Ride safe everyone, hope to see you all out there!

BMW make it as difficult as possible for you to do your own servicing, you can buy a GS 911 to perform a lot of tasks, but the bike still needs to be connected to the BMW mothership for certain tasks.

I had an F 650 as a loan bike once, it was like riding a Kango road drill.

I think it was mainly to do with it being a single cylinder bike.

Yeh defo. The big stuff i’ll Leave to the dealer but when you read the standard annual service and see what the cheeky f**k want to charge for it, it comes in handy.
