I am with you on this method. What are you thinking about oil type, synthetic or conventional oil? My first oil change was done by my selling dealer, they used ****** synthetic 5-40. Since the engine used about a half liter over 7000 KM I decided to change to BMW oil which is 10-50 conventional. Castrol has a synthetic 10-50 that I also considered. Not sure on this one but I like to stick to one oil type, and it should be readily available.??? :bmw:Florian said:I have not been easy on it from day 1, lots of throttle modulation up and down the power band and I have yet to see any oil being used or any problems. Ive done this with all my BMW bikes with great success.
Ditto, that's how I would do itcuffer101 said:When I bought my 05 LT, I bought 5 qts. of oil and an oil filter. Drove the 80 miles back to the house using the whole power band, every gear right to the limiter and back again, the whole way home. Pulled into the garage and changed the oil. Have not had a problem with engine in almost 80,000 miles. Chuck
