    BMW C650GT - 2 Years - 12000miles (20,000Kms)

    My bikes 2 year 12,000mile service has just been completed by a local independent BMW technician and I thought the results and costs would be of interest to others.

    There have been reports that some BMW dealers have implied that the CVT rollers, clutch, final drive chain and sprockets need to be changed at 12,000 miles to maintain the warranty. These items were not worn and the final drive chain did not even require adjustment.

    The CVT drive belt was well worn and a major expense. A Mitsuboshi belt bought via BMW costs 250 (including VAT at 20%) but can be obtained from other good parts suppliers for a round 125. Non Mitsuboshi belts can be obtained direct from China for 40, but require a leap of faith I could not make.
    Drive Belt Part Numbers: BMW 24827729767, MITSUBOSHI 2777001.
    Belt height: 16.9mm, Belt angle 28, Belt length 894mm, Belt width 32.4mm.

    The service required 3 hours labour + Mitsuboshi CVT belt, oil, spark plugs, brake fluid, filters and coolant. Total cost 355 + VAT. Using BMW supplied parts and a BMW dealer, the service would cost around 580 + VAT.

    Shortly after the service was due the rear wheel bearing collapsed, resulting in another large bill as the remaining ball bearing outer ring was time consuming to remove without damaging the hub. The following parts were required:
    40 x 62 x 23mm Sealed Needle Roller Bearing (NA4908ARS 2RS)
    40 x 68 x 15mm Sealed Ball Bearing (FAG 6008 2RSR)
    50 x 62 x 7mm Driveshaft Oil Seal Double Lipped
    40 x 1.5mm Sprocket O Ring
    34 x 48 x 8mm Chaincase Cover Oil Seal Double Lipped
    These parts cost 50 + VAT or around 90 from a BMW dealer.

    I have just had my 20,000km service done as well. Did it at my local dealer Procycles as they have provided good service to me - good enough to pay for! It cost me $1,100.00 AUD, including new front tyre, new front brakes, and fitting of a BMW phone holder (I bought that elsewhere).

    The belt and rollers did not need replacing. The service manager told some interesting stories about the belt. They have one customer that went for nearly 100,000km on 1 belt, riding a very long daily trip to work on the motorway (our speed limit of 110km/hr is not "high speed" I guess). On the other hand, one of the sales team rides their C650 Sport "like it's meant to be ridden", and he managed to shred his belt by 20,000.

    A good dealer will inspect and advise, not simply replace. I will get myself a Mitsuboshi for next time though, $800 for the OEM belt is taking the piss.
