RE: R1200RT-P Under Mirror Aux. Light Brackets,

can anyone tell me more about these? do they work on my R1200RT 2006 model? do I need to cut or drill on the Tupperware?

How much are they, do I take those parts numbers to the dealer?

Any help here would be appreciated.

Glenn

"* Any of the Oilhead filters will work, but they are longer", will the filter wrench for my r1100rt work on the r1200 rt oil filter, I seem to recall that I would need a different tool for the 1200 as oppsed to the 1100, but as of yet have not purchased a new one.
Thanks

Not on the original wrench on the BMW OEM R1200xx filter, the number of 'flutes' around the edge is different. There are several aftermarket filter wrenches out now that will work on both.

You need to trim the front fairing some. Don't remember prices, you should be able to order from the dealer.

Do a search and you'll find more info.

Excellent post!

May I suggest adding the PN's for the RT-P oil cooler fan? One of the most appreciated bit of info I found on this site (it gets well over 100 out here).

Hi Ken,

How about the single pancake to 2 horn conversion:

All you need is the two horns (61 33 8 381 271, 61 33 7 655 882) from the '05, one screw (46 71 7 675 209), and one of the cage nuts (61 33 1 459 545).

They aren't actually painted, more like powder coated. But I believe the noted color is pretty close.

I bought and installed new battery in my R12RT from ebatteriestogo.com. The brand is Universal Battery, part number UB22-12N. It has 22 amp hours (stock is 18) and cost $74.95 delivered. Size is perfect and works great.

Adapter lead pigtail - 61127701299

This short lead is what connects the rear accessory socket to the harness. Applies to mid '06 bikes any beyond.

Great for tapping into as a switched power source to either trigger a relay or low power devices.

Thanks to krussell for researching the p/n.

This is exactly what I did to hard wire my GPS. Works great and there's no need to tear into the main harness. Thanks 99Roadster!

I am curious how long it took you to get your battery? When they go, you usually don't have a lot of warning.

Thanks,

If you're able to plan ahead on ordering consumables, Amazon offers oil filters, oils, spark plugs, etc, with free shipping for orders over $25 on lots of items.

I couldn't find an air filter match, but did get Purolator filters PL 10241 for less than six bucks for a pair after rebate. Don't get the PL 25230, they're really too long. I believe you can get Bosch and Mobil 1 filters, too. They also offer a variety of oils, both synthetic and dino. I decided to try a case of synthetic, rationalizing that I'm saving so much money doing it myself the extra cost of the syn oil is insignificant (I don't really believe synth is going to do anything other than make the fluid in the sight glass purple, as far as engine life is concerned). That's right, purple, I bought a case of Royal Purple 20W50. The company makes a motorcycle-specific oil for a lot more money, but their tech guy told me in so many words their standard automotive oil will work just fine in the BMW.

I realize this isn't "get this part for the machine" but the cost savings of free shipping and no sales tax are significant.

NGK DCPR8EKC plug is dealer-only in U. S. NGK tech line says DCPR8EKP is identical, except better, as it has a platinum tip instead of nickel, and is widely available at auto parts stores (ask for plug for BMW M3) or at Amazon, which gives you free shipping and no sales tax.

Tech line guy says don't use the single-ground plug in the hexhead.

A request:
In Jim vonBaden's excellent R1200 maintenance video, he uses a nifty funnel to add brake fluid. Where does one find such an item?

And thanks for the effort to compile these data!

Please add: same numbers for hexhead

Here are some numbers from an airhead. I believe your engine drain sealing ring is the same.

07-11-9-963-200, 14 x 18 x 1.5 mm (final drive fill and drain),
07-11-9-963-252, 16 x 20 x 1.5 mm (engine drain),
07-11-9-963-300, 18 x 22 x 1.5 mm (transmission fill and drain).

All of the above are natural aluminium sealing rings, DIN 7603A.

New ?. I have the Gerbings liner and gloves. Hooked up the insoles and my 08' RT would not seem to let it get power. Rode home and did the restart on the bike and then it let the controller fire up. What is going on, is it the CANBUS system doing something?
Tks
In advance.:)

I just solved my problem by directly wiring to the battery (fused) as posted on a different forum.

Well I could not wait to install as my heated gear was too much of a load. Anyone need one they can have mine(shipping only) as I direct wired everything to the battery(fused of course).

Great info. One question, I notice that the maintance schedule never saves that the hydraulic clutch fluid needs changing?? Is this correct?

OK, “lifetime” is a long time admittedly.

Put it this way - There is no schedule replacement interval for mineral oil used in the hydraulic clutch system. Or any known reason to do so short of a system that becomes low or contaminated as a result of a parts failure.

More believable now?

PS: In general terms I’m trying to keep this thread limited to its subject.

This comes up regularly: "Where can I get the special tool to remove the front axle on my Hexhead?" And the answers are all legit, some very expensive. This particular "tool" has been mentioned before, but I've added a twist to it to make it easier to use and also make it possible to torque the axle to the requisite specification.

All you need you almost certainly already have:

1. Standard spark plug socket

2. Extension for socket wrench

3. Ratchet and/or torque wrench.

Like so (clickable thumbnail):



Root around in the socket and pull out the rubber plug, then insert the extension "backwards" as it's shown aligned in the photo, attach ratchet or torque wrench, and you're in business, like so:

OIL sight Glass, Hi, I am new to this forum. I have a 2005 1200RT. I changed the Oil and filter, no oil level in the round sight glass. I rode a few miles added oil still no oil in the sight glass. I have been told that these engines hide oil. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Roseburg (I think you posted this in the wrong place and it will probably be moved to Hexheads), but here's my take. First, how much oil did you initially put in after the oil change? I suspect your oil level is actually above the top of the sight glass. I've found it's very difficult to tell once the level is above the glass since the glass itself is somewhat "foggy" after the new wears off. If you've got a beefy friend that could help you, you might have him slowly lean the bike to the right while you watch the glass to see if the oil level comes down into view. Good luck.

Thanks Al, I put 4 Qts in after filter and oil change. I am going to drain it all out and see how much comes out. See if it is over filled.

Don't drain the whole crankcase. Just pull the oil filter and drain it. It may take doing this a few times but is better than losing 4 qts.. of new oil. dopeslap

Thanks to everyone for the help on the oil problem. The bike had to much oil in it. So it was over the top of the sight glass.

I have bought a 2009 - 1200 RT with a Sound Package. The manual indicates in addition to the Radio and CD there is an Intercom and Auxilary Port. I am wanting to buy a Bluetooth equipped helmet to do the following:
1. Sound System to Helmet(s)
2. Rider to Passenger
3. If possible Bike to Bike communication
I am not worried about cell phone, but if I can Bluetooth with the existing system I would be very happy. Is anyone able to use the system in this fashion?

Please add the following to the list

Final drive/Swing arm needle bearing currently listed on the microfiche as N/A. - Timken HK3020.2RS.
BMW No. 33177665148 Pivot pin.
I had a fair bit of slack in the final drive/swing arm joint and found the pin to be worn slightly and the bearing dry and dusty-apparently never greased. Cleaning the bearing and packing with grease and polishing the pin and reinstalling to recommended toque has taken almost all the slack out. I will install the new pin and bearing when the pin arrives from the dealer. (had to be ordered from Germany). This problem with the bearing and pin has been posted before and I wonder if it is advisable for everyone to check them when doing the final drive oil change, particularly the later models where you don't have to pivot the final drive.

Because of a defective battery, I replace the OEM battery with a Yuasa YTX20HL-BS AGM Lead Acid Maintenance Free 18ah and 310CCA. Near the same dimensions of the OEM BMW battery. Posts on the proper side no mods to wiring necessary. OEM strap/clamp provided adequate purchase and the battery was snug. When I returned home, I purchased a 3/4" x 6" x 2" block of rubber from a local jobber to replicate the hump in the OEM battery so the clamp has complete contact. Not necessary, but I am prone to do this type of stuff. Started great in Duluth MN at 25 degrees with this battery.

Did you have to add a vent tube to use that battery? I've been thinking about getting a "normal" MC battery, which sounds like what you've done.

This Yuasa battery is AGM lead acid maintenance free and requires no vent. I just went out to the garage and examined the installation again and this battery is a great fit with the right specs. I had experienced and observed a number of failures with these gel batteries. A fairly new Westco battery in a friend's R1150RS had a post fall out and we ended up having to drive a borrowed spike into the battery to make it to some place where we could find a battery...the Westco I tried was toast in two riding seasons...now this experience with a new RT. The Yuasa is a battery I have used in other BMWs with great success.

83 30 0 402 391 "lever"
83 30 0 401 701 "screwdriver insert" (socket)
the generator shaft has a splined opening thus the need for the special socket (it is NOT a Torx and using a torx can strip it out, don't ask how I know)

Anyone know what size or the part no. for the torx screws are that are used to attach the trim panels on a 2008 R1200RT? I seem to misplace those regularly.

Hi all, I've got a few questions pertaining to maint. parts, datal I've got access to valvoline synthetic brake fluid that exceeds dot 4 & 5. It does not say its silicone (silicone is not to be used right?) Can I use this fluid? Also, what is the deal with the clutch circuit? Some say lifetime mineral fluid, and some say it gets flushed. What gives?

There's nothing in the maintenance schedules that calls for routine changing/flushing of the clutch fluid for hexheads.

BTW, I've discovered that my Ace Hardware carries all of the Torx screws need for the tupperware. There is a big section of machine screws, etc and I did not see them at first. There is a separate section in the same aisle for metric stuff. That is where I found a trove of Torx screws.

You may be interested to know this is the same twin horn as used on some BMW cars, in the specific the 1999-2003 525i sedan and the 2000-2003 530i both sedan and estate models. If you give a call to the local breaker he may have it stock for considerably less than what BMW charges.
Hope it helps. wave

It certainly seems to me that converting the pancake horn to the ram's horn version calls for removing the bracket that turns the former 90 degrees. The microfice shows this only for the pancake horn and not on the fiche for the dual horns. When doing this, one then has a spare cage nut and screw and need not order them. Comments?

Sorry to make a long thread longer, but is it feasible to add in torque specs (and even the Torx bit sizes) for the various bolts?
I've had to do quite a bit of searching to find that the brake caliper bolts take 30 Nm (22 lb-ft). An easy pad replacement has now taken twice as long.
As this info is a big part of maintenance, I thought it might prove useful. Just asking.

Found some good info here:

FYI, since there are multiple spark plugs listed, you can go to NGK, and read about them. I think one of the big variables is temp. There are 8 and 7 temps listed on this maintence list, and you can take this into consideration when replacing your plugs. http://ngksparkplugs.com/tech_support/spark_plugs/faqs/faqcode.asp?mode=nml

From this thread spark plugs

, DirtRider says My personal favorite---

A bit closer to the production BMW NGK spark plugs are the NGK DCPR8EKP, those are very similar to the stock dual electrode plugs only with a bit different (& better according to my NGK rep) electrodes. Same heat range & same thread exposure. The NGK DCPR8EKP are quite a bit cheaper than the OEM NGK DCPR8EKC as you don't need to buy through the BMW dealer.

Here is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to make a tool to remove/replace the front axle on a hexhead RT.

1) At any hardware store, buy a 2" long bolt with a 7/8" head size and two nuts.

2) Tighten the 2 nuts against each other on the end of the bolt and you have your tool.

With the 2 nuts inserted into the axle and the bolt head sticking out, you can apply your torque wrench on the bolt head. Bingo!
