Some good clear pictures there. Are the inlet valves also so easy to get to to adjust ?
Have been considering buying a camhead bike but the necessity for dealer service was a negative -- this is clearly a trivial procedure -- only a half step harder than my airheads -- My k1200 brick I've never done the valves -- wouldn't hesitate to do this.
Thanks for sharing your skills and experience.
I feel like I should just fly out and by my R1200RT from you guys. This is how a dealership should act. No keep info from us dweebs.
Hi there, thank you for taking the time to build the step by step process. I have a question - when I am measuring the exhaust valve clerance, what setting do I set my timing at?
Thank you sir! Well down and easy to do, just as you described.
Terrific instructional pictorial for the guys / gals who enjoy working on their bikes, well done San Jose BMW !! and Thanks
than you Joe
Thank you SJBMW. I live on the other side of the country, and am not sure I'd do this work myself (even though it looks very simple). But I am posting here to tell you how impressed I am that you shared this info and these excellent pictures. I will very happily spend money at your place if the opportunity ever presents itself!
More BMW shops should take a customer-focused cue from SJBMW! Information at this level of detail is closely guarded with dealerships here in Houston.
It's things like this that makes one feel that San Jose BMW is one 'class operation" ! I have done business with them in the past and fully intend to do more with them in the future.
Thanks San Jose!!!!
