Overview
Chapter 2 of this Rider's Manual will provide you with an initial
overview of your motorcycle. All
maintenance and repair work on
the motorcycle is documented in
Chapter 11. This record of the
maintenance work you have had
performed on your motorcycle is
a precondition for generous treatment of goodwill claims.
When the time comes to sell
your BMW, please remember
to hand over this Rider's Manual; it is an important part of the
motorcycle.

Technical data
When you ordered your BMW
motorcycle, you chose various
items of custom equipment. This
Rider's Manual describes optional extras (OE) offered by BMW
and selected optional accessories (OA). This explains why the
manual may also contain descriptions of equipment which
you have not ordered. Please
note, too, that your motorcycle
might not be exactly as illustrated in this manual on account
of country-specific differences.
If your BMW was supplied with
equipment not described in
this Rider's Manual, you will
find these features described in
separate manuals.
All dimensions, weights and
power ratings stated in the
Rider's Manual are quoted to the
standards and comply with the
tolerance requirements of the
Deutsche Institut für Normung
e.V. Versions for individual
countries may differ.
Currency
The high safety and quality
standards of BMW motorcycles
are maintained by constant
development work on designs,
equipment and accessories.
Because of this, your motorcycle
may differ from the information
supplied in the Rider's Manual.
Nor can BMW Motorrad entirely
rule out errors and omissions.
We hope you will appreciate that
no claims can be entertained on
the basis of the data, illustrations
or descriptions in this manual.

If the next service is due in less
than one month, the date for the
next service is shown briefly after
the Pre-Ride Check completes.
The month is shown as a twodigit number and the year as a
four-digit number, with a colon
as separator, so in this example
the next service is due in March
2007.

If the motorcycle covers long distances in the course of the year,
under certain circumstances it
might be necessary to have it
serviced at a date in advance
of the forecast due date. If the
countdown distance to the odometer reading at which a service
will be due is less than 1000 km,
the distance is counted down in
steps of 100 km and is shown
briefly after the Pre-Ride Check
completes.

date or the odometer reading at
which service was due is accom-
If the service-due indicator
appears more than a month
in advance of the actual due date
or if the word "Service" does not
show permanently even though
a service is overdue, the date
stored in memory in the instrument panel is incorrect and must
be set. This situation can occur if
the battery was disconnected for
a prolonged period of time.
If you want to have the date set
consult a specialist workshop,
preferably an authorised BMW
Motorrad dealer.

Fuel capacity
The horizontal bars above

When the fuel in the tank is

Warnings are indicated by the

combination with a text warning
or a warning symbol in the multifunction display. The 'General'
warning light shows red or yellow, depending on the urgency of
the warning.
Warning symbols 1 and 2 can
appear on the multifunction display. Text warnings such as 3,
for example, appear in the odometer panel and are accompanied by warning-triangle symbol 4.
If two or more warnings occur at
the same time, all the appropriate
warning lights and warning symbols appear. You can call up text
warnings to alternate with the
odometer readings ( 38). The

Lack of fuel can result in
the engine misfiring and
cutting out unexpectedly. Misfiring can damage the catalytic
converter; a hazardous situation
can result if the engine cuts out
unexpectedly.

Top up the coolant ( 92)
Possible cause:
The coolant temperature is too
high.
If possible, ride in the part-load
range to cool down the engine.

Engine symbol appears on

The engine is running in
emergency operating mode.
Engine power might be reduced
and this can cause hazardous
situations, particularly if you attempt to overtake other road
users.
Engine power level might be
lower than normal: adapt your
style of riding accordingly.
Possible cause:
The engine control unit has diagnosed a fault. In exceptional
cases, the engine stops and refuses to start. Otherwise, the en-
gine runs in emergency operating
mode.
You can continue to ride, but
bear in mind that the usual engine power might not be available.
Have the fault rectified as
quickly as possible by a
specialist workshop, preferably
an authorised BMW Motorrad
dealer.
Insufficient engine oil
pressure
Warning light for engine-oil
pressure flashes.
The oil pressure in the lube-oil
system is too low. Stop immediately and switch off the engine.
The insufficient oil pressure warning does not fulfil
the function of an oil gauge. The
only way of checking whether
the oil level is correct is to check
with the oil dipstick.
Possible cause:
The engine-oil level is too low.
Check the engine oil level
( 87)
If the oil level is too low:
Top up the engine oil ( 88)
Possible cause:
The engine-oil pressure is insufficient.
Riding when engine-oil
pressure is low can result
in engine damage.
Do not continue your journey.
Have the fault rectified as
quickly as possible by a
specialist workshop, preferably
an authorised BMW Motorrad
dealer.
Bulb defective
General warning light shows
yellow.
LAMP appears on the display.
A defective bulb places
your safety at risk because
it is easier for other users to
oversee the motorcycle.
Replace defective bulbs as
soon as possible; always carry a
complete set of spare bulbs if
possible.
Possible cause:
Low-beam headlight, parking
light, rear-light, brake-light or
turn-indicator bulb defective.
Visually inspect to ascertain
which bulb is defective.

Warnings issued by the
on-board computer OE
The ice warning does not
mean that there is no risk
of black ice forming at measured
temperatures above 3 °C.
Always take extra care and think
well ahead when temperatures
are low; remember that the
danger of black ice is particularly
high on bridges and where the
road is in the shade.
Ride carefully and think well
ahead.

The electronic immobiliser EWS
helps protect your BMW motorcycle from theft, and this enhanced security is at your disposal without any need for you to
set parameters or activate additional systems. The engine of a
motorcycle fitted with this electronic immobiliser can be started
only with the keys that belong to
the vehicle. You can also have
your authorised BMW Motorrad dealer bar individual keys, for
example if a particular key goes
missing. The engine cannot be
started with a key that has been
barred.
In-key electronics
The motorcycle's electronics
exchange certain continuously
changing signals with the electronics in the key; these signals
are specific to your motorcycle
and they are transmitted via the
ring aerial in the ignition lock.
The ignition is not enabled for
starting until the key has been
recognised as "authorised" for
your motorcycle.
A spare key attached to
the same ring as the ignition key used to start the engine could "irritate" the electronics, in which case the enabling
signal for starting is not issued.
The EWS warning appears in the
multifunction display.
Always keep the spare key separately from the ignition key.

The range readout indicates how
far you can ride with the fuel remaining in the tank. The figure
is calculated from the level of
fuel in the tank and a postulated
average consumption, stored in
memory, that is not always the
same as the average that can be
viewed on the display.
The system cannot tell exactly
how much fuel is on board when
the tank is completely full. Under
these circumstances the display
shows a minimum-range figure
accompanied by a > symbol. A
more accurate figure for range is
shown as soon as the fuel level
can be measured exactly.
When refuelling after running on
reserve, make sure that you top
up the tank to a level above reserve, as otherwise the sensor
will not be able to register the
new level. If the sensor cannot
register the new level neither the
fuel-level reading nor the range
readout can be updated.
The calculated range is only
an approximate reading.
Consequently, BMW Motorrad
recommends that you should not
try to use the full range before
refuelling.

preload.
An uneven surface requires
softer damping than a smooth
surface.
An increase in spring preload
requires firmer damping, a reduction in spring preload requires softer damping.

Incorrect tyre pressures impair the motorcycle's handling characteristics and increase
the rate of tyre wear.
Always check that the tyre pressures are correct.
At high road speeds, tyre
valves have a tendency to
open as a result of centrifugal
force.

Correct loading
Do not ride your motorcycle after
consuming alcohol, drugs and/or
medication.
Risk of poisoning
Exhaust fumes contain carbon
monoxide, which is colourless
and odourless but highly toxic.
This applies even to short journeys, and to every season of the
year. Your authorised BMW Motorrad dealer will be glad to advise you on the correct clothing
for every purpose.
Overloading and imbalanced loads can adversely
affect the motorcycle's handling.
Do not exceed the permissible
gross weight and be sure to
comply with the instructions on
loading.
Inhaling the exhaust fumes
therefore represents a
health hazard and can even
cause loss of consciousness with
fatal consequences.
Do not inhale exhaust fumes.
Do not run the engine in an enclosed space.
Speed
Alcohol and drugs
High voltage
If you ride at high speed, always
bear in mind that various boundary conditions can adversely affect the handling of your motorcycle:
Even small amounts of
alcohol or drugs will adversely affect your perception
and your ability to assess situations and make decisions, and
slow down your reflexes. Medication can exacerbate these effects.
Touching live parts of the
ignition system with the
engine running can cause electric
shock.
Do not touch parts of the ignition system when the engine is
running.
Risk of fire
If misfiring causes unburned fuel
to enter the catalytic converter,
there is a danger of overheating
and damage.
For this reason, observe the following points:
Do not run the fuel tank dry.
Do not attempt to start or run
the engine with a spark-plug
cap disconnected.
Stop the engine immediately if
it misfires.
Use only unleaded fuel.
Comply with all specified maintenance intervals.
Temperatures at the exhaust are
high.
Unburned fuel will destroy
the catalytic converter.
Note the points listed for protection of the catalytic converter.
Flammable materials (e.g.
hay, leaves, grass, clothing
and luggage, etc.) could ignite
if allowed to come into contact
with the hot exhaust pipe.
Do not permit flammable materials to come into contact with the
hot exhaust system.
Cooling would be
inadequate if the engine
were allowed to idle for a lengthy
period with the motorcycle at
a standstill: overheating would
result. In extreme cases, the
motorcycle could catch fire.
Do not allow the engine to idle
unnecessarily. Ride away immediately after starting the engine.

You cannot start the motorcycle
with the side stand extended and
a gear engaged. The engine will
switch itself off if you start it with
the gearbox in neutral and then
engage a gear before retracting
the side stand.
Gearbox
You can start the engine when
the gearbox is in neutral or if you
pull the clutch with a gear engaged. Do not pull the clutch until after you have switched on the
ignition, as otherwise the engine
will refuse to start. When the
gearbox is in neutral, the green
neutral telltale light is on and the
gear indicator in the multifunction
display shows N.
Kill switch in run position a.
Gearbox lubrication is ensured only when the engine
is running. Inadequate lubrication can result in damage to the
gearbox.
Do not allow the motorcycle to
roll for a lengthy period of time or
push it a long distance with the
engine switched off.

Running in
The first 1000 km
While running in the motorcycle, vary the throttle opening
and engine-speed range frequently.
Try to do most of your riding during this initial period on
twisting, fairly hilly roads, avoiding high-speed main roads and
highways if possible.
Do not exceed the rpm limits
recommended for running in.
Running-in speed
<5000 min-1
No full-load acceleration.
Avoid low engine speeds at full
load.
Do not omit the first inspection
after 500 - 1200 km.
Brake pads
New brake pads must "bed
down" and therefore do not
achieve their optimum friction
levels during the first 500 km.
You can compensate for this
initial reduction in braking
efficiency by exerting greater
pressure on the levers.
New brake pads can extend stopping distance by a
significant margin.
Apply the brakes in good time.
Tyres
New tyres have a smooth surface. This must be roughened by
riding in a restrained manner at
various heel angles until the tyres
are run in. This running in procedure is essential if the tyres are
to achieve maximum grip.
Tyres do not have their full
grip when new and there
is a risk of accidents at extreme
angles of heel.
Avoid extreme angles of heel.
Brakes
How can stopping
distance be minimised?
Each time the brakes are applied,
a load distribution shift takes
place with the load shifting forward from the rear to the front
wheel. The sharper the motorcycle decelerates, the more load
is shifted to the front wheel. The
higher the wheel load, the more
braking force can be transmitted
without the wheel locking.
To optimise stopping distance,
apply the front brakes rapidly and
keep on increasing the force you
apply to the brake lever. This
makes the best possible use of
the dynamic increase in load at
the front wheel. Remember to
pull the clutch at the same time.
In the "panic braking situations"
that are trained so frequently
braking force is applied as rapidly as possible and with the

rider's full force applied to the
brake levers; under these circumstances the dynamic shift in load
distribution cannot keep pace
with the increase in deceleration
and the tyres cannot transmit
the full braking force to the surface of the road. The front wheel
locks and the imminent risk of a
fall increases.
ABS OE
with BMW Motorrad
ABS has to intervene to keep
the front wheel from locking; this
increases stopping distance.
Descending mountain
passes
There is a danger of the
brakes fading if you use
only the rear brakes when descending mountain passes. Under
extreme conditions, the brakes
could overheat and suffer severe
damage.
Use both front and rear brakes,
and make use of the engine's
braking effect as well.
Wet brakes
After the motorcycle has
been washed, ridden
through water or ridden in
the rain, the brake discs and
pads might be wet and the
brakes might not take effect
immediately.
Apply the brakes in good time
until the brakes have dried out.
Salt on brakes
The brakes may fail to take
effect immediately if the
motorcycle was ridden on saltcovered roads and the brakes
were not applied for some time.
Apply the brakes in good time
until the salt layer on the brake
discs and brake pads has been
removed.
Oil or grease on brakes
Oil and grease on the brake
discs and pads considerably
diminish braking efficiency.
Especially after repair and maintenance work, make sure that the
brake discs and brake pads are
free of oil and grease.
Dirt or mud on brakes
When riding on loose surfaces or muddy roads, the
brakes may fail to take effect
immediately because of dirt or
moisture on the discs or brake
pads.
Apply the brakes in good time
until the brakes have been
cleaned.
The brake pads will wear
more rapidly if you ride frequently on unsurfaced tracks or
poor roads.

How does ABS work?
Engineering details
6
z
The amount of braking force that
can be transferred to the road
depends on factors hat include
the coefficient of friction of the
road surface. Loose stones, ice
and snow or a wet road all have
much lower coefficients of friction than a clean, dry asphalt surface. The lower the coefficient
of friction, the longer the braking
distance.
If the rider increases braking
pressure to the extent that braking force exceeds the maximum transferrable limit, the wheels
start to lock and the motorcycle
loses its directional stability; a fall
is imminent. Before this situation
can occur, ABS intervenes and
adapts braking pressure to the
maximum transferrable braking
force, so the wheels continue
to turn and directional stability
is maintained irrespective of the
condition of the road surface.
What are the effects of
surface irregularities?
Humps and surface irregularities can cause the wheels to lose
contact temporarily with the road
surface; if this happens the braking force that can be transmitted to the road can drop to zero.
If the brakes are applied under
these circumstances the ABS
has to reduce braking force to
ensure that directional stability
is maintained when the wheels
regain contact with the road surface. At this instant the BMW
Motorrad ABS must assume an
extremely low coefficient of friction, so that the wheels will continue to rotate under all imaginable circumstances, because this
is the precondition for ensuring
directional stability. As soon as
is registers the actual circumstances, the system reacts instantly and adjusts braking force
accordingly to achieve optimum
braking.
Rear wheel lift
Under very severe and sudden
deceleration, however, under certain circumstances it is possible
that the BMW Motorrad ABS will
be unable to prevent the rear
wheel from lifting clear of the
ground.If this happens the outcome can be a highsiding situation in which the motorcycle can
flip over.
Severe braking can cause
the rear wheel to lift off the
ground.
When you brake, bear in mind
that ABS control cannot be relied
on in all circumstances to prevent
the rear wheel from lifting clear of
the ground.
Within the limits imposed by
physics, BMW Motorrad ABS ensures directional stability on any
surface. The system is not optimised for special requirements
that apply under extreme competitive situations off-road or on
the track.
Special situations
The speeds of the front and rear
wheels are compared as one
means of detecting a wheel's
incipient tendency to lock. If the
system registers implausible values for a lengthy period the ABS
function is deactivated for safety
reasons and an ABS fault message is issued. Self-diagnosis has to complete before fault
messages can be issued.
In addition to problems with the
BMW Motorrad ABS, exceptional
riding conditions can lead to a
fault message being issued.
Exceptional riding
conditions:
Riding for a lengthy period with
the front wheel lifted off the
ground (wheelie).
Rear wheel rotating with the
motorcycle held stationary by
applying the front brake (burnout).
Heating up with the motorcycle
on the centre stand or an auxiliary stand, engine idling or with
a gear engaged.
Rear wheel locked for a lengthy
period, for example while descending off-road.
If a fault message is issued on
account of exceptional riding
conditions as outlined above, you
can reactivate the ABS function
by switching the ignition off and
on again.
What significance
devolves on regular
maintenance?
Invariably, a technical system cannot perform beyond
the abilities dictated by its level
of maintenance.
In order to ensure that the BMW
Motorrad ABS is always maintained in optimum condition, it
is essential for you to comply
strictly with the specified inspection intervals.
Reserves for safety
The potentially shorter braking
distances which BMW Motorrad
ABS permits must not be used
as an excuse for careless riding.
ABS is primarily a means of ensuring a safety margin in genuine
emergencies.
Take care when cornering. When
you apply the brakes on a corner,

accept any liability whatsoever
for parts and accessories which it
has not approved.
BMW Motorrad cannot
assess each non-BMW
product to determine whether it can be used on or in connection with BMW motorcycles
without constituting a safety hazard. Country-specific official authorisation does not suffice as
assurance. Tests conducted by
these instances cannot make
provision for all operating conditions experienced by BMW motorcycles and, consequently, they
are not sufficient in some circumstances.

Engine oil
Checking engine oil level
The engine can seize if the
oil level is low, and this can
lead to accidents.
Always make sure that the oil
level is correct.
The oil level varies with the
temperature of the oil. The
higher the temperature, the higher the level of oil in the sump.
Checking the oil level with the
engine cold or after no more than
a short ride will lead to misinterpretation; this in turn, means that
the engine will be operated with
the incorrect quantity of oil.
In order to ensure that the engine oil level is read correctly,
check the oil level only after a
lengthy trip.
Wipe the area around the oil
filler neck clean.
Allow the engine to idle until
the fan starts up, then allow it
to idle one minute longer.
Switch off the ignition.
Make sure the engine is at operating temperature and hold
the motorcycle upright.

the minimum tyre tread depth
permitted by law.
Have the tyres changed in good
time before they wear to the
minimum permissible tread
depth.
Make sure the ground is level
and firm and place the motorcycle on its stand.
Measure the tyre tread depth
in the main tread grooves with
wear marks.
Tyres have wear indicators
integrated into the main
tread grooves. The tyre is worn
out when the tyre tread has worn
down to the level of the marks.
The locations of the marks are
indicated on the edge of the tyre,
e.g. by the letters TI, TWI or by
an arrow.
If the tyre tread no longer complies with the minimum legally
required tread depth:
Replace tyre.

Tyre recommendation
Pull the chain back at the rearmost point of the sprocket.
The tips of the sprocket teeth
must remain inside the chain
links.
If the chain can be pulled back
far enough to expose the tips of
the sprocket teeth:
Consult a specialist workshop,
preferably an authorised BMW
Motorrad dealer.
For each size of tyre BMW Motorrad tests certain makes, and
approves those that it certifies
as roadworthy. If BMW Motorrad
has not approved the wheels and
tyres, it cannot assess their suitability or provide any guarantee
of road safety.
Use only wheels and tyres approved by BMW Motorrad for
your type of motorcycle.
You can obtain detailed information from your authorised BMW
Motorrad dealer or on the Internet at www.bmw-motorrad.com.
Effect of wheel size
on suspension-control
systems
Wheel size is very important as a
parameter for the ABS. In particular, the diameter and the width
of a motorcycle's wheels are pro-
grammed into the control unit
and are fundamental to all calculations. Any change in these
influencing variables, caused for
example by a switch to wheels
other than those installed exworks, can have serious effects
on the performance of the system.
The sensor rings are essential for
correct road-speed calculation,
and they too must match the
motorcycle's system and consequently cannot be changed.
If you decide that you would like
to fit non-standard wheels to
your motorcycle, it is very important to consult a specialist
workshop beforehand, preferably
an authorised BMW Motorrad
dealer. In some cases, the data
programmed into the control unit
can be changed to suit the new
wheel sizes.

Battery
Maintenance instructions
Correct upkeep, recharging and
storage will prolong the life of
the battery and are essential if
warranty claims are to be considered.
Compliance with the points below is important in order to maximise battery life:
Keep the surface of the battery
clean and dry
Do not open the battery
Do not top up with water
Be sure to read and comply
with the instructions for charging the battery on the following pages
Do not turn the battery upside
down
nect a suitable trickle charger to
the battery.
If the battery is not disconnected, the on-board electronics (e.g. clock, etc.) gradually
drain the battery. This can cause
the battery to run flat. If this happens, warranty claims will not be
accepted.
If the motorcycle is to be out of
use for more than four weeks,
disconnect the battery or con-
Charging battery when
connected
BMW Motorrad has developed a float charger specially designed for compatibility
with the electronics of your motorcycle. Using this charger, you
can keep the battery charged
during long periods of disuse,
without having to disconnect the
battery from the motorcycle's
on-board systems. You can obtain additional information from
your authorised BMW Motorrad
dealer.
Charging the connected
battery directly at the battery terminals can damage the
vehicle electronics.
Always disconnect the battery
from the on-board circuits before recharging it with a charger
Only chargers suitable for
this mode of charging can
be used to recharge the battery
via the on-board socket. Unsuitable chargers could cause damage to the motorcycle's on-board
electrics.
Use BMW chargers with the
part numbers 71 60 7 688 864
(220 V) or, as applicable,
71 60 7 688 865 (110 V). If
you are in doubt, disconnect
the battery from the on-board
systems and connect the charger
directly to the battery.
If you switch on the ignition and the multifunction
display and telltale lights fail to
light up, the battery is completely
flat. Attempting to charge a completely flat battery via the onboard socket can cause damage
to the motorcycle's electronics.
If a battery has discharged to the
extent that it is completely flat, it
has to be disconnected from the
on-board circuits and charged
with the charger connected directly to the battery posts.
Charge via the power socket, with the battery connected
to the motorcycle's on-board
electrical system.
The motorcycle's on-board
electronics know when the
battery is fully charged. The
on-board socket is switched off
when this happens.
Comply with the operating instructions of the charger.
If you are unable to charge
the battery through the onboard socket, you may be using
a charger that is not compatible
with your motorcycle's electronics. If this happens, disconnect
the battery from the on-board
systems and connect the charger
directly to the battery.

Care products
BMW Motorrad recommends
that you use the cleaning and
care products you can obtain
from your authorised BMW Motorrad dealer. The substances in
BMW Care Products have been
tested in laboratories and in practice; they provide optimised care
and protection for the materials
used in your vehicle.
The use of unsuitable
cleaning and care products
can damage vehicle components.
Do not use solvents such as cellulose thinners, cold cleaners,
fuel or the like, and do not use
cleaning products that contain
alcohol.
Washing motorcycle
BMW Motorrad recommends
that you use BMW insect remover to soften and wash off
insects and stubborn dirt on
painted parts prior to washing
the motorcycle.
To prevent stains, do not wash
the motorcycle immediately after
it has been exposed to strong
sunlight and do not wash it in the
sun.
Make sure that the motorcycle
is washed frequently, especially
during the winter months.
To remove road salt, clean the
motorcycle with cold water immediately after every trip.
Use only cold water to wash off
road salt.
After the motorcycle has
been washed, ridden
through water or ridden in
the rain, the brake discs and
pads might be wet and the
brakes might not take effect
immediately.
Apply the brakes in good time
until the brakes have dried out.
Clean plastic parts with water
and BMW plastic care emulsion.
This includes in particular:
Windscreen and slipstream deflectors
Headlight lens made of plastic
Glass cover of the instrument
cluster
Black, unpainted parts
Warm water intensifies the
effect of salt.
The high pressure of steam
cleaners can damage seals,
the hydraulic brake system, the
electrical system, and the seat.
Do not use a steam jet or highpressure cleaning equipment.
Cleaning easily
damaged components
Plastics
If plastic parts are cleaned
using unsuitable cleaning
Chrome
Soften stubborn dirt and
insects by covering the affected areas with a wet cloth.
Clean the radiator regularly to
prevent overheating of the engine due to inadequate cooling.
For example, use a garden hose
with low water pressure.
Windscreen
Clean off dirt and insects with a
soft sponge and plenty of water.
Fuel and chemical solvents
attack the material of the
windscreen; the windscreen becomes opaque or dull.
Do not use cleaning agents.
Use plenty of water and BMW
shampoo to clean chrome, particularly if it has been exposed to
road salt. Use chrome polish for
additional treatment.
Radiator
Cooling fins can be bent
easily.
Take care not to bend the fins
when cleaning the radiator.
Rubber
Treat rubber components with
water or BMW rubber-care
products.
Using silicone sprays for
the care of rubber seals can
cause damage.
Do not use silicone sprays or
other care products that contain
silicon.

Paint care
Washing the motorcycle regularly
will help counteract the long-term
effects of substances that damage the paint, especially if your
motorcycle is ridden in areas
with high air pollution or natural
sources of dirt, for example tree
resin or pollen.
Remove particularly aggressive
substances immediately, however, as otherwise the paint can
be affected or become discoloured. Substances of this nature
include spilt fuel, oil, grease,
brake fluid and bird droppings.
We recommend BMW vehicle
polish or BMW paint cleaner for
this purpose.
Marks on the paintwork are particularly easy to see after the
motorcycle has been washed.
Care
agents, the surfaces can be damaged.
Do not use cleaning agents that
contain alcohol, solvents or abrasives to clean plastic parts.
Even fly-remover pads or cleaning pads with hard surfaces can
produce scratches.
z

Care

z
Remove stains of this kind immediately, using cleaning-grade
benzene or petroleum spirit on a
clean cloth or ball of cotton wool.
BMW Motorrad recommends
BMW tar remover for removing
specks of tar. Remember to wax
the parts treated in this way.
Protective wax coating
BMW Motorrad recommends
applying only BMW car wax or
products containing carnauba
wax or synthetic wax.
It is time to rewax the paintwork when water "puddles" on
the surface, instead of forming
beads.
Laying up motorcycle
Clean the motorcycle.
Remove the battery.
Spray the brake and clutch
lever pivots, the side stand
pivots and the centre stand
pivots (if the motorcycle is fit-
ted with a centre stand) with a
suitable lubricant.
Coat bright metal and chromeplated parts with an acid-free
grease (e.g. Vaseline).
Stand the motorcycle in a dry
room in such a way that there
is no load on either wheel.
Before laying the vehicle
up out of use, have the engine oil and the oil filter element
changed by a specialist workshop, preferably an authorised
BMW Motorrad dealer. Combine work for laying up/restoring
to use with a BMW service or
inspection.
Restoring motorcycle
to use
Remove the protective wax
coating.
Clean the motorcycle.
Install a charged battery.
Before starting: work through
the checklist.

BMW Motorrad service
Advanced technology requires
specially adapted methods of
maintenance and repair.
If maintenance and repair work is performed inexpertly, it could result in consequential damage and thus constitute a safety risk.
BMW Motorrad recommends you
to have all the associated work
on your motorcycle carried out
by a specialist workshop, preferably an authorised BMW Motorrad dealer.
Your authorised BMW Motorrad
dealer can provide information on
BMW services and the work undertaken as part of each service.
Have all maintenance and repair
work carried out confirmed in the
"Service" chapter in this manual.
Authorised BMW Motorrad dealers are supplied with the latest
technical information and have
the necessary technical knowhow. BMW Motorrad recommends that you contact your authorised BMW Motorrad dealer
if you have questions regarding
your motorcycle.
BMW Motorrad service
quality
Along with its reputation for engineering quality and high reliability, BMW Motorrad is a byword
for excellent quality of service.
To ensure that your BMW is always in optimum condition, BMW
Motorrad recommends that you
have the maintenance work required for your motorcycle carried out regularly, preferably by
your authorised BMW Motorrad dealer. For generous treatment of claims submitted after
the warranty period has expired,
evidence of regular maintenance
is essential.
Certain signs of wear, moreover,
may otherwise not be noticed
until it is too late to put them
right at moderate cost. Your authorised BMW Motorrad dealer's
mechanics know every detail of
your motorcycle and can take remedial action if necessary before
minor faults develop into serious
problems. By having the necessary repairs done properly and
in good time, you save time and
money in the long run.
BMW Motorrad Service
Card: on-the-spot
breakdown assistance
In the event of a breakdown, the
BMW Motorrad Service Card issued with each new BMW motorcycle enables you to access
an extensive range of services
such as breakdown assistance,
motorcycle transportation etc.
(details can differ from country to
country). In the event of a break-
"Service Contact Europe" or
"Service Contact Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Oceania".
BMW Motorrad service
network
The BMW running-in check has
to be performed when the motorcycle has covered between
500 km and 1200 km
BMW Motorrad has an extensive after-sales service network in
place to look after you and your
motorcycle in more than 100
countries. In Germany alone, you
have the best possible access
to approximately 200 authorised
BMW Motorrad dealers.
All information concerning the international dealership network
can be found in the brochure
Maintenance work
BMW Pre-delivery Check
Your authorised BMW Motorrad
dealer conducts the BMW predelivery check before handing
over the motorcycle to you.
BMW Running-in Check
BMW Service
The BMW Service is carried out
once a year; the extent of servicing can vary, depending on the
age of the motorcycle and the
distance it has covered. Your authorised BMW Motorrad dealer
confirms that the service work
has been carried out and enters
the date when the next service
will be due.
Riders who cover long distances
in a year might have to bring in
their motorcycles for service before the next scheduled date. It
is to allow for these cases that
a maximum odometer reading is
entered as well in the confirmation of service. Servicing has to
be brought forward if this odometer reading is reached before
the next scheduled date for the
service.
The service-due indicator in the
multifunction display reminds you
about one month or 1000 km
in advance when the time for a
service is approaching, on the
basis of the programmed values.
