I highly recommend this one: https://www.s1000xr.uk/index.php/topic,940.0.html

I've used it several times and it has always been a great help.

You can go online to www.Manualslib.com put in BMW S1000XR and down load for free a workshop manual. In fact they do manuals for almost every bike. You do not have to download the whole Manual but you can choose individual pages as required. Great information and Free....

Couldn't find the Workshop manual for S1000XR on www.manualslib.com but I have bought the Haynes Manual from UK which just arrived and its very good (IMHO). Haynes have only just released the manual in late December. It covers the RR, R and XR models.

I should point out that this is not a full workshop Manual, but covers most home repair and maintenance work, and should not be taken as a full service Manual.

I've been tempted to purchase this but:

To me, the cost is comparable to the Haynes, which may go into further detail.
Can it be translated into English?  He uses words like tyre and spanner.  What is that?   :027:
