Tools for the 1200RT


GordonB

Recommended Posts

I am fully equipped for 1100/1150 maintenance;

Now that I have a 1200 I see I need a good set of T-Handle Torx to replace my allens. What else?

Spark plug wrench?, Spark wire puller?

Special tools for rear wheel removal?

Suggestions from the hex pro's?

Get a coil puller for the coils. The plastic thingy muh jigger doumy whatsit is pretty worthless.

 

There are aftermarket metal ones available.

 

No special tools needed for the rear wheel. Just a T50.

 

You have ecerything you need if you have been doing your maintenance up to this point.

the front wheel requires a special tool (at least one I didn't have). BMW sells one, as do several aftermarket companies - not specific to the RT - and I've read that some people have adapted other tools to do the job.

A cheap spark plug socket 13/16 slips into the front axle hole nicely. I had to trim a little chrome off the hex end to make it work but it is perfect. I insert a 3/8 extension into it and it is like the socket was made for this 22 mm application.

Some have asked for a complete list of my tools in the kit I have displayed online a few times, so here it is

This is the bare minimum kit you should have. It is marked by asterisks on the list!

Here it is in the pouches.

This is what it looks like rolled up.

Here is what I carry, it represents everything on my list. I have some tools not specific to the R1200GS so that I can help anyone else if they need it.

And here it is in my Jesse bag. As you can see it takes up about 1/3rd of the bag, and fits in nicely!

I am working on a valve adjustment now. The wire puller will not even fit on the coil. POS!

I just ordered on from Marc Parnes.

 

Now I wait for the correct tool to do the job.

 

But what about the POS that I ordered from BMW, it was on the parts list on line. I found it in the back section. It is not even close. WTF!

Instead of assembling all of that I've decided that I will just start riding with you at all times. grin.gif
