    You'll definitely get less wear from the front than the rear. My last several front tires have been Michelin City Grip and I can get around 7k miles from them.

    The 24k service is definitely the most costly bit of regular maintenance. I saved several hundred on mine by removing the necessary plastics and taking the bike in "naked." The amount of labor...

    500ml. No dipstick. The BMW bottle is 1L so it's exactly half a bottle. It's not a bad idea to remove the cover and check chain tension and look for any broken bits (sprocket parts) while you're...

    Very curious that it started that long after the change. What was the condition of the clutch when you disassembled everything. And remind me -- how many miles on the bike and is it the OEM clutch?
