This video covers all of the following categories, and is designed to allow you to complete all the requirements for maintaining your bike to BMW specifications. It is designed for ALL R1200 series Camhead* 2010 and newer motorcycles though it is centered around the R1200GS/A since that is what I had available for filming.


*Note: Covered Motorcycle(s):

Note: The DVD was designed around the R1200 series BMW from 2010 through 2012GS, and 2010-2013 R1200GSA/RT/R. I have added tutorials on removing the body panels on the R1200RT/R to the Updates section. The R9T has conventional forks which are not covered. I will try to cover them as soon as an R9T becomes available to me.

1. Oil change, engine, with filter

2. Gearbox-oil change

3. Oil change, rear wheel drive

4. Checking and adjusting valve clearance

5. Changing brake fluid, front/rear brakes

6. Replace air filter cartridge

7. Replace belt for generator

8. Checking spoke tension, adjusting if necessary

9. Correcting engine synchronization (for maintenance)

10. Reading fault memory

I have included the necessary tools, supplies and torque specifications to complete all the listed services. I have also added many helpful tips and notes to make this as simple as possible.

See DVD Description Page for available tool lists and downloads of the service schedules.

Consider this, the tool to remove and install the alternator belt is nearly $150, I teach you how to do it with no special tools, a savings of $125 right there!

A typical 6K service will run you around $300-350, depending on location. The brake bleed alone can run as high as $200.

What I did not include, since I felt they were self-explanatory, was how to check your oil, tires, lights, and side/center stand.

The DVD should assist those of you on the fence in deciding you CAN do these expensive services yourself, and save money for those all-important farkles, and gas for riding! It is also an excellent resource for those looking to see what the dealer does during a typical service.

The DVDs are available for $30 plus $4 shipping to the continental US, $6 for non-US shipping.

I will accept Paypal as this is my preferred method of payment. I will also accept money orders, and personal checks for US orders ONLY, and with a US bank only, see the sales buttons on the top of this page for ordering.

The DVD is available for shipping immediately. It is produced into a master pressed format like a store bought movie which should be viewable on most DVD formats (NTSC), as well as virtually any lap-top computer. Many top line DVD players in Europe also play this format, though it is the North American Standard. See this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTSC for locations in which this DVD will definitely work. In some cases you may need to use the basic Windows or Mac DVD player on your computer or laptop.

Caution: Although every effort was made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this DVD it was primarily designed to enhance your knowledge of the BMW R1200 "Camhead" series motorcycle. As such, it is not meant to replace the maintenance manual or to supply complete information about each procedure covered. Any damage done to a motorcycle or personal injury resulting from the use of the DVD is solely the responsibility of the user and not the maker or seller of the DVD. Please use the DVD as a reference only. Performing motorcycle maintenance can be dangerous so please take the proper precautions when attempting to perform your own service work. If you do not have the proper tools or mechanical ability to do this type of work it is best left to the professionals at your BMW Service Center.
