Planning to ride down from NYC. (as long as no rain.)

Planned maintenance,
Throttle sync
valves check
Rear tire replace(forgot to ship it to you, but will bring it with me.)
brake flush (servo brakes..) Do you have proper tools to do this?

Thanks.

No problem, I have all you need!

Thanks,

I'll need to do an oil change which will include the final drive oil. I'll try not to spill on your driveway. #-o

My to-do list for the JVB tech day:

1. Replace final drive oil and lube rear splines. Replace cracked boot at rear u-joint. ($86 :shock:) Inspect front u-joint.
2. Replace brake fluid.
3. Throttle-body synch (if time and tool availability allows).

We have DOOR PRIZES, and lots of them! Maybe even enough so everyone gets one! Beemer Boneyard, Best Rest, Marc Parnes, and JVB Productions all have what you need!

4 Hex ez-CANs are now on the list of door prizes. That brings the total value to over $1600! We have some great supporters of the BMW Marque out there, and I appreciate all of them!

Hey Jim-
No maintenance to do this year but hope to stop by on Sat just to shoot the breeze, watch and learn.
I think I have your address still from 2 years ago when I attended, but in case I don't, would you shoot me a PM with it.
Thanks,
Tim
