i just have to say iam really impressed with this bike.as you can see its got 137,000kms on it and all in 2 years!its a 2000 model bought a couple yrs back
I have worked on it since new and have only done the reguler maintanance,valve adjustments,oil changes brake pads etc...and thrown a ton of tires at it.
the only real problem has been the shaft drive seal blowing from time to time and covering the back end with fluid and a couple sets of wheel bearings.otherwise perfect
Iam impressed.i work on 4 of these and all are just incredible in the wear and tear department.
thumbs up to bmw
if ya want decent tires.it runs the michelin pilot ROAD tires and gets great wear.
