Re: Brake Lines
trussell: Take it from a former Harley rider (almost 40 years) The BMW isn't any more expensive than a lot of other bikes. What you have to do, is learn the bike, and do your own maintenance. BMW motorad club has been a life (and) money saver for me. His instructional videos are easy to follow. If you're half a "wrench", you can do just about anything on your own.. As far as BMW parts go, don't immediately go to the Stealer. There are many aftermarket and low cost alternatives out there.. The internet is great for that.. Also used parts are readily available..
I've owned my 06 LT now for over 8 months, and haven't found anything on it so far that i can't do on my own, including flushing the servo system. Too many horror stories out there from people who depend on the Dealer to do everything for them.. I've seen some that take it for a simple oil change.. Don't understand, unless they have money to burn. Just my humble opinion.
Learn your bike, and enjoy.
P.S. This forum is also a great information venue.
