6000 mile + annual service
My new-to-me 2002 RS is at the dealer to have all its fluids changed, as recommended by the folks on this forum. The bike has less than 3000 miles but doesn't appear to have been serviced since the day it rolled off the showroom floor in 2002, so it sounded like good advice to me. Still does.
Changing out all the fluids equated to the 6000 mile service plus an annual service, according to the BMW schedule. BMW quotes 9 hours labor for the job. Cost for the service was $789. Ouch. But the mechanic there (Jeremy @ Wagner BMW) is excellent, and having him give the bike a once-over makes me feel confident everything is right.
Congrats on the new family member!
