final drive and transmission fluid change


Recommended Posts

Im getting ready to work on a friends bike which is an '06 1200RT, and this is the first time working on it. Can someone give me a quick run down on how to change the final drive fluid and transmission fluid. From what i understand the final drive has to be pivoted backwards to drain/refill it? I also didnt see the drain plugs for the trans, are they behind the foot rest plates?

The only thing I'd add is that BMW specifies a 75W90 GL5 synthetic gear oil for the final drive (the pictorial mentioned 75W140 for both FD and transmission).
