BMW Final Drive Fill Tool

Take the mess out of filling your 2008-2009 BMW final drive with my fill tool. Cost is $35.00. It will only work on FD's with the newer fill plug, it will not work for FD's that fill through the speed sensor or ABS plug. Please pm me if you have an interest, I will send you a copy of the instruction sheet. I will ship anywhere in the conUS, sorry I am not setup for export.

Interesting!

Just one question, does this vent to allow the displaced air out?

No, it does not need to. The original design did but after playing with and using it on my 2009 GSA I found that if you gently squeeze and release the bottle it will "burp" the existing air back and forth and the oil will transfer to the FD without it. It states in the instruction sheet that you need to be careful not to over power the seals. The whole process takes less than a minute.

Not at $35.00 each, the part that screws into the FD is fully CNC machined and all one piece so there are no small parts to loose. As a bonus to the inmates here and to get some of these out there I will include shipping to the lower 48 via UPS in the $35.00 price tag, in other words free shipping. All I ask in return is for the inmates to write and post a review.

I realized that I need to put a time limit on the free shipping to conUS offer, this offer will expire on 10/1/09

I just used this on the new Wethead. It is awesome. Doesn't make a mess, and allows FD fluid change without removing the fender!

I hope they are still available. I am including it on my new Wethead DVD!

I would have maybe agreed, until I used it on a Wethead. Access is tight unless you pull the fender. This takes an hour job and makes it 20 minutes, and no mess.

If it was $120 and had "Touratech" written on it, you'd be on it like a chihuahua on a pork chop, right?

I don't have a bike that would use it, but I enjoy well-made tools that save time and make a job easier.

Jim, I only posted alternatives because this thread had been inactive for 4 years. I thought it was a safe guess that dede pulled the plug on this product. Anyway, I removed my post.

Nuked mine too.

He is actually active and still has these available.

I just talked with him.

Thanks,

Jim

fill tool

Yes, I still have some of these. They were designed to fit my then new 2009 GSA where the fill was in the back of the final drive. I am not sure about any of the newer models, the tool threads into a 12mm x 1.5mm thread, I can produce them with other threads but not for the limited interest I have seen so far.
