Yup!!!!

My 1200 GS is pretty simple, removing the skid plate is the only time consuming part of the job. I hear KTMs are pain in the ass to do.

Our BMW twins are a lot easier than that. If I did not have a bash plate on it I could do an oil change in a couple minutes.

Warm bike
Remove torx bolt from lower left side and allow oil to drain, replace bolt when done
Remove spin on filter from front of engine and replace (be sure old rubber gasket came off with old filter)
Pour in 2.9 litres of your favorite juice
Start, check for leaks take short test ride
Done, repeat in 5000 km ( manual says 10,000)
Sure, rub it in, Garth...


I'm not riding the Beemer again, I might have to change the oil then...

Well now that we have an oil thread going....my two cents. 1971 Triumph Bonneville oil change. Ride bike 100 miles, add 1/4 litre 20W/50 oil. Repeat 8 times, oil change is now complete. No filter to replace, oil is automatically self-draining. This is why the Brits won the war and the Germans lost.

You forgot about the 6 rebuilds during that time frame.

EDIT: BTW, the RAM mounts work great!

Actually, Garth makes it sound even tougher than it is.
My system differs.
Ride bike to Tim Horton's to warm old oil.
Ride home.
Hob nob with neighbour's hot daughter over coffee while bike cools.
Slide oil pan under bike.
Sip coffee.
Admire neighbour's daughter's ass sets.
Remove dip stick.
Place left foot on wrench to apply enough torque to get the aforementioned oil plug from drain hole.
Sip coffee.
Comment on weather.
Remove filter. Allow filter to fall into oil pan.
Allow bike to "bleed".
Sip coffee.
Replace drain plug.
Replace filter, after pouring a little new oil into it.
Add 3 litres of yummy Mobil 1.
Spark up and check for leaks.
Test ride, with neighbour's hot daughter hanging on like a three toed sloth on a windy day.
That's it.
I think I should make an instructional video.....

Lyle - next time you change your oil - please give me a call. I may need to ride the 500kms to Kenora to "observe" how you do it. Hey - and I've never considered smoking a big fatty (re: sparking up) while changing the oil - but good on ya. I may consider it next time. It should keep me nice and relaxed. Thanks for the tip!

Mike

Welcome to my world every day. I'll never understand how high priced engineers can sleep nights turning out the crappy designs that make routine maintenance such a pain in the butt.

Sometimes customers ask about my choice of motorcycles or what I look for in a machine. Ease of maintenance is high on the list.

Of course weird, oddball, very rare or just plain ass goofy rank right up there as well...

At very least, an oil change should not require the removal of body plastic. Air filters should be "right there", and batteries should be easy to get at. If you can't at least deal with these three items, you should be driving a Buick.
In my wife's new Subaru, the oil filter is ON TOP of the engine....the drain plug? I haven't gotten anywhere near looking for that yet. I suspect it's on the bottom somewhere...
