BMW R1200 Wethead Service Video - MP Download

NOTE: I will soon convert all my videos to downloads, but until then, see the full list of available videos via DVD here: JVB Productions Videos

This video covers all of the following bikes, and is designed to allow you to complete all the requirements for maintaining your bike to BMW specifications. It is designed for the BMW R1200 series Wethead (Liquid Cooled) 2013 and newer motorcycles* though it is centered around the R1200GS since that is what I had available for filming.

*Covered Motorcycle(s):
· 2013 to present R1200GS
· 2014 to present R1200GS/GSA/RT/R**
· 2015 to present R1200RS**
· 2017 to present R1200GSw Rallye

Note: I will be adding a tutorial on removing the body panels on the R1200 R and RS “Wetheads” to the Updates section in the future as new models become available.

**The R1200R and R1200RS have conventional forks which is not covered in this video. All other service items are the same. I will make YouTube videos to cover these as the bikes become available to me.

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.

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

What I did not include, since I felt they were self-explanatory, was how to check your oil, tires and lights.

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.

The Video (in WMV format) is downloadable immediately. It will play on any device that can play videos.

It is formatted in WMV format that usually plays without issue. However, if your computer does not display the video correctly, some sections upside down, or other issues, you may need to download a player that works correctly with this format. I have found that in 100% of these cases the VLC Player fixes the issue, and it is a free and safe download. Here is a link for it:
