2nd service guidance
« on: July 09, 2016, 10:30:55 AM »
Hi, my bike is 12 mo the old, 4K miles. The service warning is on the dash screen but it's 2k short of the 2nd service mileage (6k I believe)
Have you folks with similar situations had the service done or waited for the mileage to be reached
All other bikes I await the mileage but they haven't had the it tutting warning light permanently on.
Standard maintenance still gets done, fluids, chain etc

Finally what dies a 2nd service cost

Cheers

I meant 12 months old and irritating light, these apple devices write their own words sometimes, sorry 😄

In an effort to keep BMW corporate profits up they recommend you get it serviced annually even if you haven't done the milage. Too many oul codgers buying bikes & only riding to Tesco on sunny days  :038:

Depends on if you are in it for the long haul or the classic statement I saw a while back an 'Alpha Buyer' here today gone tomorrow I've had many a laugh watching punters who haven't played the game and then been up Scht creek without a paddle because the bike has gone belly up and having been asking the dealer and BM to bail them out.

What hasn't been mentioned but soon will be a year from now is the extended warranty that us Brits can take out which causes so many posts on the K forums and do folks think we will need such on the XR,I'm paying well over £300 a year for the basic extended warranty on my K being on my 3rd clutch and second ABS unit glad I have.

Any query with the service phone the dealer and play the game when the warranty is up their will be plenty of threads about such no doubt.

Yes, you should get the service done, and the price is around £240.

Mine's going in next Saturday, and will be just shy of 6k miles, but the dealer said it doesn't matter. On a bike with this performance, I'd want it checked over and all the fluids changed once a year anyway, regardless of mileage.

Thanks Gents, will get it booked in. 4K in a year isn't high for some but for me it's a good year seeing I can't actually remember going anywhere, I usually keep the bikes 5/6 years so it's good to keep on the correct side from a warranty perspective.

Just had my 6k service done at Benhams, Wolverhampton. Cost £196 and I had a loaner for however long it took. Can't fault the service. We unfortunately have to play their game at this point in time, and I'm not complaining  :028:

HI. When you say play the game, I've had my previous Beemers serviced by an independent BM specialist, far more thorough and transparent.  As long as genuine BMW parts are used and the service personnel are qualified BM have to honour the warranty.
P.S. Lot cheaper :016:
P.P.S. also mu nearest BMW dealership is Chester. Enough said.

Took my XR in yesterday for it's 2nd service, I'd done a tad over 3,000 miles in the last 12 months.  Had a loan bike - F800 - (that bike made me REALLY appreiciate the superb quick shifter we have on the XR !) Oil & oil filter, brake fluid, coolant level checked  and a visual check over all the rest. I paid £220 inc vat.
