Oil level

Def,
Yes it was plenty hot. 1 hour ride back home. If I check it in the morning I don't expect it to be any lower in the sight glass. That would defy gravity and cause me to re-think the constants...

Greasing pivot bearings

I just did my 24K service ('09 1200GS). Thought it might be a good idea to check the pivot bearings. Clean and add grease. Is it necessary to heat either side because of the use of Locktite?

Rocker adjustment

The gap is fairly liberal. So I realize there must be considerable variation. My problem was that I could not get the gap any greater than .076. When I tapped down on the cap the gap actually...

24K service

24K service is coming up on my '09 GS. I thought I'd attempt to lube the front shaft splines. I know it's going to be a PITA getting it off. But putting it back may be worse. So some questions.

Not unusual

Thanks for the replies. Seems 22K is not unusual. Thought it would last longer so I was curious. Replacement is covered under my extended warranty so It's only going to cost me $25 deductible. Maybe...

Rust?

Brian,
I had a small amount of flaking just on the lip of the "axle" area. I was still under warranty so I showed the dealer. He took pictures and notified BMW NA. Haven't heard a thing since. That...

Does yours flake?

'09 GS, the hole that goes thru the final drive. I thought that was a finished part. Seems it's more of a coating. Mine's started to peel. Dealer says it's his first. Probably is. Anyone else...

So I'm doing my 12K service (09' GS). I've done the oil and starting the valve adjustment. Got the JVB video so it's pretty straight forward. Except for getting the spark plug out. I bought a socket...
