The 20k (12k miles) Service

Ok, I will admit to laziness with this post. But thought worth asking.

Anyone out there compiled a complete list of BMW parts to perform the 20k (12k in miles) service? Oil, filter, crush washers, etc.

Thanks in advanced.

You need oil, filter, gear lube, spark plugs and an air filter.
You may also need valve shims, coolant, brake fluid and brake pads.

Since you do not list which year: http://www.beemerboneyard.com/12mimaki1.html

I have service charts too, but it depends on your year.

Edit, your profile says Wethead:

There is a crush washer for the final drive drain plug and an o-ring for the fill plug, and don't forget the oil drain crush washer. Doesn't hurt to have a spare set of rear brake pads, too.

Question

I compiled this list:

11 42 721 779 Oil Filter
07 11 9 963 340 GASKET RING - A20X24-AL (crush washer)
7510039644 5W40 API SL, JASO MA-2 SYN Oil

07 11 9 963 132 GASKET RING - A12X16-CU (crush washer)
33 11 7 695 219 O-RING - 11,2X1,8 (FD drain gasket)
7512293972 FD SAF-XO SAE 75W90 Oil (968ml) or:
7512296486 FD SAF-XO SAE 75W90 Oil (200m)

13 72 7 726 799 Air Filter

Am I missing anything? Should the clutch oil be flushed/replaced? What about coolant?

What I couldnt find is the spark plug spec -which one. Recommendations?

Total cost above with 200ml FD oil is $116.68 USD according to Max BMW -way less than the ~$600 CDN Im being quoted by my dealer. That said, I expect the parts cost 50% in Canada. I hear the Finger Lakes ride in NY is beautiful....

I've been using Lucas diff oil for the final drive and trans ever since 3k+. No mal effects. Dealer recommended when that safxo unibtanium was the price of fragrance!

say what?

check valves, change oils. the rest is dealer revenue booster. air cleaner and plugs at 12K? phooey! maybe in the fifties, but plugs nowadays will go plus 50k miles and if you put air cleaner up to sunlight, you will see you are wasting your money replacing it.

Good pointers.

I read elsewhere dealers will look at the valve timing when doing the valve check, and this is outside the skills of the DIY'er. How important is it to look at the timing, and how does one know if it's off by the engine sound?

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't see how valve timing could be off unless you undo the timing chain or sprocket for some reason. The chain would have to be really loose and worn to be able to jump a tooth. I don't know if the valves can actually touch the piston but if they can the sound to look for would be a very loud bang followed by disturbing silence.

You would naturally think so, but in the case of the GSW the spark plugs will show significant wear at 12K, and will likely go about double that before performance degradation is noticeable, there is no way they will make it to 50k miles. This engine is harder on spark plugs than any other motor I have ever seen.

The air filter will be like new if you ride primarily on the street, if you have accumulated significant off-road miles in dirty/dusty conditions the filter will probably need replacing, give it a look regardless and knock the bugs off it.

Valve timing on the GSW can be off without jumping a tooth.
There have been numerous reports of the valve timing being slightly out of spec on bikes that have relativity few miles, either from not being set correctly at the factory or the variance occurs during the normal course of run-in.
There is no way to know if your bike is effected without physically checking it, it is fairly easy to do when checking valve clearances
