1999 K1200LTC with 75k. I believe my bike has the original spark plugs. When I started to replace them I noticed a couple of the plug wires had been "chaffed" by contact with the plug caps so I am replacing the wires. I already have the wires. There is a cover over the distributor that has one screw that is going to be hard to access. Anyone on this site done this job before and have any advice for me?

I have not done that yet.

When I went to the parts diagrams at MAX BMW, I didn't see a cover on the ignition module. But, by force of habit, I looked at the parts for my 00LT.

Until some can directly answer you question come along, maybe the directions from a service manual might help?

Just in case it has not occurred to you, it is a good time to replace the plugs, and to check the "valve" clearance (when the plugs are out).

I flipped my valve cover gasket over so that I wouldn't have to buy a new one. I doesn't leak.
