How frequently should I service my motorcycle ?
Most BMW’s get serviced every 10000 klm . The Airhead motorcycles need a little more attention than that. They should be serviced every 5000 klm to include torquing the heads and adjusting the valves.
What oil should I use in my motorcycle ?
I would only recommend the factory oil. BMW has their oil specially blended with the additives they want in their oil. The temperature outside may change the viscosity or weight of the oil recommended for your bike. The back of the owners manual would have a chart if this is the case.
What tyres should I run in my motorcycle ?
Each bike differs. Look in the owners manual and it will tell you BMW’s recommendations. The size and speed ratings are important.
How often should I check my tyres pressure on my motorcycle ?
Every time you ride. It only takes a few seconds and will save your tires and maybe your life.
I ride my motorcycle just a few hundreds klm a year , when should I replace the oils ?
You should change your fluids at the beginning and end of each season
