Paul Mihalka Posted October 20, 2007 Share Posted October 20, 2007 New service policy and reminders in the instrument display: First service as usual around 600 miles, official recommendation between 310 and 750 miles. After the first service, once a year. For "high mileage" riders: Valve adjustment has to be checked/adjusted for R and G series every 6.000 miles, K1200LT and F800 bikes every 12.000 miles, new series K bikes every 18.000. The bulletin does not say anything about oil changes. I would not suggest to wait to 18.000 miles for a oil change. At the first service the bike's instrument is set up with next service date and next mileage requierement. This is done with the dealer's GT1 data processor. When the bike gets close to the required service the critical date or mileage will show up in the bike's instrument display (except K1200LT, G series, HP2 bikes) for 5 seconds after each start-up. While running the word "service" is displayed. Obviously this can be reset only by the dealer, until somebody comes up with a gimmick . If you do your own servicing, like valve adjustments on a R bike, you'll have to live with the word "service" in your instrument. It could be worse. Link to comment
