BMW R1200 Camhead Service Video - MP

See the review from the Motorcycle Consumer News here!

This video covers all of the following categories, and is designed to allow you to complete all the requirements for maintaining your bike to BMW specifications. It is designed for ALL R1200 series Camhead* 2010 and newer motorcycles though it is centered around the R1200GS/A since that is what I had available for filming.

*Note: Covered Motorcycle(s):
·2010-12 R1200GS
·2010-2013 R1200GS Adventure
·2010-2013 R1200RT
·2011-2013 R1200R
*2013 to present R9T

Note: The video was designed around the R1200 series BMW from 2010 through 2012GS, and 2010-2013 R1200GSA/RT/R. I have added tutorials on removing the body panels on the R1200RT/R to the Updates section. The R9T has conventional forks which are not covered. I will try to cover them as soon as an R9T becomes available to me.

You can navigate from chapter to chapter using the forward buttons on your video player. The start times for each chapter are listed below:

1. Oil change, engine, with filter (00:45)

2. Gearbox-oil change (07:13)

3. Oil change, rear wheel drive (12:20

5. Changing brake fluid, front/rear brakes (42:55)

· Visually inspecting brake pipes, brake hoses and connections

· Checking front brake pads and brake discs for wear

· Checking rear brake pads and brake disc for wear

· Visually inspecting brake pipes, brake hoses and connections

6. Replace air filter cartridge (1:02:15)

8. Checking spoke tension, adjusting if necessary (1:20:57)

9. Correcting engine synchronization (for maintenance) (1:22:54)

10. Reading fault memory (1:27:45)

I have included the necessary tools, supplies and torque specifications to complete all the listed services. I have also added many helpful tips and notes to make this as simple as possible.

See video Description Page for available tool lists and downloads of the service schedules.

Consider this, the tool to remove and install the alternator belt is nearly $150, I teach you how to do it with no special tools, a savings of $125 right there!

A typical 6K service will run you around $300-350, depending on location. The brake bleed alone can run as high as $200.

The video should assist those of you on the fence in deciding you CAN do these expensive services yourself, and save money for those all-important farkles, and gas for riding! It is also an excellent resource for those looking to see what the dealer does during a typical service.
