06 GT. F-D lube NOT changed at 600 miles, but this was when they were sealed for life.
6000 miles. I was on a trip and had the bike serviced. Asked to have the F-D lube changed. I was told it was not needed, and besides the BMW super special lube was not available in the USA, would have to be imported from Canada @ $90 per liter, or is it litre.
Reeks of black market, some slease ball opens the trunk of his 72 Caddy. "pisssst, hey buddy wan'a buy some oil"?
18000 miles. Dealer replaced the rear drive because of excessive play- warranty. No leaks, no drips, just play. The tech noted to me upon picking up the bike that they all had a little play. Sure nuff, checked another GT in the shop, shook a couple in the showroom, even shook some oilheads. Play, not much. Now where ever I go I have to test BMW final drives for play!
Is this simple enough?
