F800GS Service Schedule

All right fellow ADVer's, it took me all winter but I finally got 6000 miles on my F800GS. I do most of the maintenance on my motorcycles but the F800GS Owners Manual doesn't cover the maintenance schedule and A&S does not have a service sheet on their website for the F-GS twins.

Can someone post what is required for the 6K, 12K, Annual and any other important milestones? If anyone is willing to "rent" out their F800GS maintenance DVD, I'll be happy to compensate you for loaning it to me....say $20. That should make a dent in the cost of the DVD.

I'll visit the dealer to have them read the codes and perform any recalls that have not already been taken care of.

TIA!!!!

Yes, it sort of frosted my cookies, that I had to pay for the DVD to get this stupid list, that should have been in the manual.

Enjoy, the list for an f800gs(USA). (let me know if you can't see it)

Thanks MTrider16!!

For the most part it appears that the 6K mile service is an oil change and reading the fault memory. Piece of cake!!

I keep telling the dealer that "I'm here for my $250 oil change".

I've put them on notice that at 36000, I'm not coming back.

That is one of the perks I got from my dealer, free oil changes..no parts no labor fee. 600 mile service $105 and thats basically an hour of labor to go over the bike. So I suspect the 6K will be in the same ball park for me.

I didn't make any sort of arrangment with the dealer and payed about the same for the 1000Km (600mile) service, 75€

How much is the normal break in service in the US?

Just curious as to how you pulled that up? I can only find it by using the search function.

1. Select your bike.
2. Click the button "Inspection Instructions"
3. Select the item "BMW Service"
4. Follow the prompts.

(BMW puts their info in strange places)

It's that "And reading the fault memory" that's got me annoyed. That and re-setting the service count-down. This is the first bike I have owned that I can't fully service myself, the first one that requires a frickn' computer to work on. A computer I've got to pay someone else to use.

I plan on changing the oil my self, partly because my Hyde bashplate/Holan crash bar combination will take quite a bit of time to remove & replace & I'm surely not paying soemone else to do it. I know I will have to get the dealer to read codes & re-set the on-board service minder. What experience have other people had working around this?

Not sure that you can. I have the Hyde skidplate also and did my own 6,000 mile service. Took it in to have fault codes read and a reset. Explained it all to the service writer. 4 hours later trying to find out WTF and the mechanic is buttoning up the skidplate after doing a routine 6,000 service In addition, what I was told for part of the delay, was that to reset the service check they have to delete all the software off the bike then reinstall with the shop CD. In my case it didn't "take" the first time and they couldn't get the horn from not being constantly on and needed to do it again.
From ordering the bike accessaries to this latest episode has convinced me that from now on, I will give them written directions as it seems all they know is what corporate tells them and they are only following orders
In their defense they adjusted the bill to exclude the service but I have never dealt with such a "driven from the top organization"
