This schedule is found under the Inspection Interval button. I also don't see any reference to a 600 mile interval. I assume that folks are just refering to an early oil change and checkup to verrify that the engine is doing well.

There is not inspection interval button. Did you mean "inspection instructions" Button. If so, this is where I found the other quoted instructions, but not a comprehensive list of what needs to be done at each service.

Yes, your right, Inspection Instructions. Each one of the items is either a hotlink to a document or expands with bullet items when you click on them.

What more do your need?

concise list

I am looking for something that states clearly:

X Miles:
DO A
Do B
Check C
...

Y Miles:
Do A
Check C
Check D
Replace Q
...

Instead the manual states a list of items (not fully inclusive) and states when these should be completed. However I know that there are more things to check at the different mile marks. THey just do not state what they are.

Yes, it is somewhat annoying how they list them out. However, what do you think is missing? It looks like most of the items are there.

On my RepROM DVD under Inspection Instructions>BMW Service the list shows with notes indicating the interval of some items. Unless otherwise indicated all the items are to be performed every 6000 miles (10000 KM).

Example: brake fluid change should be changed after one year and then every other year after that. The Spark Plugs need changing at 24000 miles.

All the other items without specific noted are to be performed every 6000 miles like oil and filter.

As for the 600 mile all these items not specifically noted with a different interval are carried out.

In the past the service intervals were spelled out as Service, Inspection, and Annual:
Service: 6000, 18000, 30000 miles Etc.
Inspection: 12000,24000,36000 miles Etc.
Annual: not mileage related, time from date of manufacture was counted.

All of this is still basically handled the same way, just the terminology has changed.

I wrote a WORD Doc table that put these service items in a check list similar to the way they used to publish. Ran a few copies and leave them in my maintenance notebook in the garage. This way I have a checklist without using a computer while having fun with the bike. Easy enough to do and it makes a good record of what was done.

Ok, That starts to make since. Would you be able to email/share with me the Word Doc you did. That sounds like a great idea, and would save me the time (to allow more riding )

24,000 mile service at the dealer

I'm curious what you guys (that have service done by the dealer) are paying for the 24,000 mile service?
I just had mine done... checked valves--no adjustments needed,,, replaced spark plugs and air filter.. oil and filter changed and rear break pads.
They called me and said $657.00
$425 in labor $194 in parts and tax
Talk about a WOW moment. They also asked if I wanted my fork oil changed.. that would be another $200 in labor because the forks had to be removed from the triple tree yadda yadda.... I said that would have to wait.
I usually do the simple stuff like the oil/filter change myself, but I don't feel comfortable doing the valve stuff, so I figured I would just let them do everything since its still pretty cold here in PA to be lying on a concrete slab working on the bike.

Did they kiss you first?

Did you ask for a cost estimate prior to handing over the keys?

My f800 has 4500 miles... Whats the cost for the 6000 mile ss?

So about 5 hrs labor @ $85/hr and then parts and tax. Doesn't seem far fetched, but definitely is not cheap.

I think the 6000 was around $160
I figured the 24000 would be about the same as the 12000 which I think was 400-500? maybe. But I did the oil filter change on that one.
I am guessing the price is probably in line with other dealers, but I would feel better if someone confirmed that LOL

Yep every 12,000 miles.... I only have another 8000 miles of warranty left then I will adjust that to every 24,000 miles.

The equivalent information has been previously posted but inmates may find this pdf version convenient.
