Recommendation for LT Service

Hello Gentleman.
As you know from my thread "Germans Coast to Coast" in Ride Tales I bought an 05 LT in California. Very nice and reliable Bike.
Out of the papers I think this Bike needs at least a complete change of all liquids. Engine, Gearbox, FD, Brake system.
Is there a wrencher how is familiar with the LT, a Garage, a Dealer with Service in the Orlando, Fl. Area you could recommend?

Appreciate any help as you know I handle this from Germany, thanks to everyone in advance.

I'm in Tampa, about an hour away and you can use my garage and tools. I'll even help. Otherwise, there is a BMW dealer in the Orlando area. Bring $$$...Give me a call if you want to do it here. 813 267 8181.

I can help with everything but the brake. I'm barely competent !

Re: Recommendation for LT Service

Manfred,

I am in Orlando and could help also.

Like Dan, I can do most any maintenance except brake flush.

I ALWAYS let the dealer do the brake flush because if you can not stop, nothing else matters.

I also keep in the garage fresh fluids and filters for the LT.

Let me know if I can help.

As far as the deal, Magic City Cycle in Orlando is ok to deal with. They are expensive, like most BMW dealers. I have had good luck with them. Corey has always treated me right.

Wink Re: Recommendation for LT Service

Hi Paul, also to you, thanks for your offer to use your tools and your Garage. But I think my time is so short when I come over so that I dont like to start to do some service on the Bike. I think I will use Magic City Cycle for the Service. Bring it over there in the morning and pick it up afternoon. Is only 12 mi away from my sons house.
Thanks Guys, but keep in mind, if you come over to Germany I offer you the same help,

Manfred
