Just curious about the other owners experiences regarding 1st scheduled service...

The manual prescribe a visit to the service dept. of your dealer once odometer reach 500 to 1200KM mark (300-750 Miles) for Running-In check.
- Has anyone went for this service yet ?
- Do you know what kind of work has been performed on your bike ?
- How much did they charge you ?

First oil change, again per the manual, is said to be required at 10,000km (6000 miles). Maybe it is understood the Running-In check includes oil+filter change ?
Personally I plan on changing the oil+filter as soon as I'm done with the break-in.

Thanks.

For the first running in service, as far as I'm aware, they change the oil and oil filter, and:

check the diagnosis system, coolant level, clutch play, throttle cable, front and rear brake pads for irregular wear, brake discs for wear, the brake lines, brake hoses, brake connections, tyre pressures and tread wear, chain sag, brake fluid levels, steering-head bearing, lights and signalling equipment, the battery charge state.

They also lubricate the side stand, test the engine and clear the service reminder and set the next reminder.
Depending on how busy they are the service should take around an hour (i.e. when they don't have a backlog and don't need to do any extra work on your bike).

Luckily my dealer offers the first service including parts and consumables free of charge. (you could mention this to your dealer to see if they can offer the same deal, maybe omit the fact that my dealer is located in Australia).

Additionally, I don't know what the warrantee period is in Canada, here in Australia it is two years. This warrantee could be void if you start doing your own servicing? Maybe check the implications of DIY-ing it.

The warranty period in the UK is two years. You don't have to have it serviced at the BMW dealers but you must use genuine BMW filters etc to keep the BMW warranty (EU rules) and that rule applies to all makes as long as you use OE parts.

Yeah.. but I mean, we could definitely do that ourselves if we have a list of all of the torque specs, could also do our own oil changes too actually.

But on a new bike and my lack of skill... I may just go to the dealer the first time around.

Then my bike is in for the first service (1000km)
I borrowed a similar bike to get home. It seems slower than mine, and it was difficult to find neutral.
Mine has gone 700km, the one I borrowed 2000km
