The 07-09 R1200 series have some changes not currently covered in the R1200 "Hexhead" and "Camhead" DVDs. I intend to rectify this by posting the updates to these and the various bodywork and tank removal/installation procedures in the "Pictorials and Info" section of this site, see the header link.

Note that all current specifications, except the brake flush and Final Drive procedures are still correct for the late 07-09 R1200 series bikes with non-Servo ABS brakes.

To this end, I need some of the new bikes to makes these free pictorials available:

If you have a bike in the DC Metro area, and would like a free demonstration and assist with complete service, please contact me at: and we will work out a time.

Right now I still need:

07-09 R1200R (bodywork removal and installation)

Please note that I will only need one of each, and will post which ones I still need as I accomplish some of these.

Thanks for your continued support!
