Looking forward to the tech day scheduled in Nov, I have purchased the parts from beemer boneyard to change rear drive oil and lube the drive shaft splines, additionally I would like to change the engine oil and if time allows adjust valves during the oil change if experienced help is available. I don't have feeler gauges for the valve check or the shims, If they require changing does anybody have a shim kit they could bring and of course I would purchase/exchange shims. After all that if the GS911 is available would like to see the new alignment procedures on the wet head. Oh and I have a set of carbon fiber dog ears to swap with the silver ones...

Guess You better get there early, Bub!

Sounds like a lot of technical work to me....

Cheers, Phil

P.S. I'm working on my new homestead in HSV. Just installed garage-door opener #2 today.

Hey Bob,

Beemer Boneyard = Great Customer Service, Supports/Donates to Jim's Tech Day and is a small business
6k mile oil change kits here: https://www.beemerboneyard.com/r1200wethead.html
12k maintenance kit without oil here: https://www.beemerboneyard.com/r1200wcmaintkit.html
and with oil here: https://www.beemerboneyard.com/r1200wcsmaintkit.html
Rear Drive Oil = no problem (Is part of the 12K kit)
Lube Shaft Spline = Interesting, I was talking to George about this topic after the club ride. Interested in learning more...
Engine Oil = Easy Peasy, I am guessing you bought the 12K Service pack from Beemer BoneYard too?
GS911 = Not sure if the Club has bought a new one yet, If Jim shows up hopefully he brings his so we can reset the idiot light.
Valves Check = You do know this will require a cold engine, I have a full set of feeler gauges, as for shims you would need ESP, and have already order them, I don't know about a shim kit. I just know you have to order specific ones. And without already knowing kind of hard to change.
Food for thought = JVB sells a great video that covers all the major stuff for TLC of our bikes. I have it and watch it each time prior to doing stuff.... also sold very cheaply https://www.beemerboneyard.com/madv.html
Dog Ears? = k,

Don't forget the small keg refrigerator and motorcycle lift for the traveler passing through. :-)

I also purchased Jims DVD and have watched it, my only complaint is he should have used my TB to show off how pretty the GS can be... :lol:
I'm going to bring the bike over in my trailer, plus if I break it I can haul it to the BMW store...
What was the tire brand and model you have on your GSA? I purchased a set of TKC-70s but have been rethinking my riding preferences and may sell those off and purchase more of a street tire.

Nope, I volunteer mine, :-) for the big screen. My bike has been on his lift a couple times and in front of the camera.

As for trailers, that means the oil is going to drain slow.

As far as tires... here you go. I am trying to hold off for the michelin 5 GTs but not out for the bike. I was told after the first of the year. I will vouch for the 4's year around, all weather (including flooded hi-ways).

I happen to know MOD matches on-line prices if you are in the neighborhood.

Bob,
I have a few different sized shims in stock. You won't need them but if you give me a call.

George to the rescue... :-) , but he is right, as new as your bike is it is highly doubtful you would need them Earlier I did a speed read and did not see the year of the bike.

I'd like to stop by.

I think Morton's is having something that day to regarding comms systems, so I might go there first because I need one. But you're just around the corner from me. Would be nice to finally meet.

As long as my 600 mi service doesn’t run long, I’ll swing by afterwards.
