120 or 30 hours. No real issues yet. Torque limiter and wheel bearings at 70 hours. Since then, justa lot of grease and changing of filters and whatnot. Rides great.

I dont ride it as much since I've been putting so much time on the trials bike.

We put the Remus pipe and muffler on ours. Tried to get the Leo Vince - actually had the muffler, wanted the matching pipe but couldn't find it, so we sold the LV before getting to use it.



The Remus is a bit louder than stock, for sure.

Grease Points on 450x

Has anyone taken pictures of exactly where the vital grease points are for the 450x
How important are they?
I have had ATK/ Penton etc and only greased the chain and cables and rode them for years
Is the 450 more sensitive?

One side of the bike has a black plastic cap at hte swingarm pivot. Remove it, and use a grease needle to shoot a bunch in the small hole in the middle of the big hex nut.

On the other side, there is a small allen head screw in the middle of a metal bit with two pin holes. Remove the allen screw, and squeeze more grease in that hole.

in both cases you should squeeze enough in to see it start splooging out the inside of the swingarm pivot somewhere.Enough to start seeing the grease move is enough, no need to keep going after you se some start coming out.

These need grease every day you ride. Pretty important to do this.

That, and I do the wheel bearings, also. More like every 15-20 hours, depending on the conditions.

Are the steering head bearings top and bottom the same? Anyone got a bearing number (not BMW part number!)

Not sure if the upper and lower are the same, but BmwETK lists the upper (it only shows the upper, so I'd suppose they are the same, but you should wait for someone to verify that!) as a 30206, that'd be 30x62x17.25mm.

Thanks - I have pulled the triple tree and bearings and they are the same. Managed to get that same number off the OEM FAG's.

The bottom bearing is incredibly vulnerable and the excuse for a dust seal is really pathetic. Upper is better with a cover and o-ring. I am going to see if I can get a high cap version with an integrated seal. Anyone else wirth experience with these bearings input appreciated.

I like it. More info on the fairing and light setup. That looks like it would be a great setup for the night trail rides.
