K1200RS Maintenance

Just curious, I have a set of DVD' s that show how to maintain my other bike which is a Honda Goldwing. The vids cover everthing from changing fork oil to how to replace a tire. Is anyone familiar with a set of DVD's or CD's that have maintenence procedures as defined for the BMW K1200RS?

I would be interested in a set.

Please advise.


Thanks,

I've got two CD's, one from questionable source(s) for the 2003 K1200RS and a 2004 CD from BMW that's hardly worth the plastic the information was put on. As I have the GT, and most of my repair journies were GT-specific, the first one wasn't a lot of help, but it's more informational than the second.

Clymer manual seems to have gotten the highest marks from those posts I've read.
