12K service kit?

I have been searching the archives and haven't been able to find a dealer kit (or a list) that has all the parts for the 12K maintanence. BMW of San Cruz apparently doesn't list the 12K parts any more. Does anyone know of a reputable BMW dealer that sells the parts for the 12K servicing?

K1200LT Maintenance Schedule

I am sure you can get all the required parts from Chicago BMW (@20% off list) but, what you really ned is the attached (I hope!) maintenance schedule and the service CD.

The yearly or every 12k service is not too diificult. Most guys that have done service work on bikes or cars should be able to handle the LT. Under the 'Tupperware' she's just a bike!

If you have further questions give us a ring!

No, they don't list the kit on their web site, BUT! They do still sell it. Just call 'em up via their 800 number on the web site and tell 'em what you want.

Just got mine from 'em about a month ago - good folks!


Was told something about an "outsourced site upgrade" is why it's not listed and that over-sight will eventually be corrected.

Question More on 12K/24K parts

Ok seasoned veterans of the 12K/24K service, I have some newbie questions to ask. Try not to laugh to hard, as this is going to be my first servicing attempt. I have 12K miles on the bike, but 2 years of riding time, so some additional 2 year servicing is needed above just the 12K service. I have just ordered the Paul S DVDs, so I'll get a chance to watch them later, but in the meantime:

1) Changing the clutch fluid? Is syphioning the reservoir and refilling it adequate? What fluid type should I order? Is this the same fluid that is used for the brkes?

2) Change oil in gear box - Is this the same oil type as the engine oil (20W50). If so, how much does it require?

3) Is the rear drive fluid is the Hypoid 75W140 oil?

4) Front/Rear brake fluids - Same question as clutch fluid - Should I syphon and refill? fluid type?

5) I would be inclined to skip the fuel filter change, since its recommended at 40K or if the fuel quality is poor. Any comments?

6) After checking valve clearance and replacing the gasket and cover, what RTV is used?

7) Replacing the coolant every 2 years - What type is used? Is this necessary or can it wait?

8) Rear squeaky brakes - Is there a service recall on this or should I just order the ERC (EBC, ECR, ...XYZ?) pads and do it myself? Part number?

9) Anything else I missed? I'll order a 12K servicing kit and some additional items (brake, clutch (brake fluid?), coolant, johnson valve wrench...)

1. No
2. No. Takes the same as the differential. I'd use synthetic.
3. Yes. I'd use synthetic
4. No. Unless you are ready for a big challenge and have read the proceedure and understand it, leave this one for the dealer.
5. If you have the tank off to chnage the air filter, would be real easy to hit the fuel filter. Also gives you a chance to replace the hose clamps in the tank.
6. Don't use any sealant. Put it on dry or just a little dab in the corners to hold it. A little dab I say! Ever see the folks that use a lot and have runners of it flapping in the breeze? Well they have the same inside the engine where if it breaks loose, it can clog an oil passage. This really is a case where too much of a good thing is bad.
7. To head off any possible problems, use what the dealer sells. If pre-mix (no water needed) just pour it in, if concentrated, mix it 50/50 with distilled water to avoid introducing bad stuff found in drinking water. It's not as simple as draining out the old and adding fresh, check the thread here and see if you want to tackle it.
8. Mine squeal, sometimes, I don't worry about them and just ride it. It doesn't bother me.
9. Johnson Valve wrench? You need that for your 200,000 mile service.

Cool

Just in case you need some incentive. I just had the dealer complete 24K service, 2 years service and new tires. $1500.

A very good incenive, considering it's not always a given that all the work is actually performed and the quality of the work is a variable too. I prefer to do the things I can and just let the dealer get involved on the complex stuff.
