This is our "How To" category. It is designed to be a repository of member experiences in performing their own accessory installations and service work on their BMW Boxers. Please read the following:
1. You may submit your own text and photos of any work you’ve done on your BMW. If you know of a previous BMWST.com thread that contains information on a given procedure, and you can submit a link to, that's great. Please do not submit just photos of the finished work, but of the actual procedure, installation or repair.
2. You may submit a link to photos, text and/or videos of work done by dealers which has already been posted by them on their dealer websites or elsewhere on the internet, such as YouTube.
3. You must lead your title with the name of the BMW era bike your submission covers, i.e. Oilhead, Hexhead, Camhead, Wethead. For example,
“Camhead: Changing your oil” or
“Oilhead: Left Cam Chain Tensioner Replacement.”
This will help your fellow members more easily search through the submissions to find the information they need for their specific BMW.
4. Please do not link to How To threads posted on other user group websites.
5. Duplicate procedures are allowed, but will be limited (we don’t need 6 threads on how to change your air filter).
6. If you find the submissions of your fellow members to be of value, please be sure to thank them.
If you are submitting work, please ensure that all links to your photos work properly, and please commit to leaving those links up and active so that your fellow members may use your submission as a valuable resource for years to come.
BMWST.com, its Admin Team and other members are not responsible in any way, shape or form for the accuracy of any work, procedures or other advice offered on this site. It is worth exactly what you paid for it, i.e. ZERO. For your safety, it is imperative that you ALWAYS consult your dealer or a professional and reputable BMW repair service before proceeding with any do-it-yourself work. Motorcycling is dangerous enough without factoring in the possibility of mechanical failure, so maintenance and repair work MUST be done correctly.
