Workshop CD Arrived

I ordered a BMW R1200 Workshop CD and oil filter wrench from Motobins just before the New York trip. It arrived yesterday.

Cost was $91 shipped from England.

Now I just need to acquire the appropriate feeler guages, oil filter, and oil. Maybe I'll attempt the valve check this coming weekend.

Wish me luck!

Oil filter wrench? Are beemers not good enough for a strap wrench? LOL

If you go to Sears, look for the automotive aisle. They have a set of feeler gauges, flat/blade type, all in a bunch that are held together with a thumb screw. You can just take out the screw, slide out the 2 gauges you need, and slip them into your tool kit. Then all you need is a 3mm allen key and a 10mm open-end wrench (or is it 8mm? no I think it's 10).

You can do it! Plus it's cool to pull those cylinder covers off and see what part of your engine looks like!

You want Sears item #00940804000 / Crafstman p/n #40804. Cost is $6 before tax :)
