    Shop Manual for the R1250GS Adventure ?

    Hi there,

    I’m trying desperately to find a shop manual for my 2021 R1250GSA. My local dealer (Ottawa, ON) has screwed me over for the last time and long story short… I guess I’m going to have to do my own service going forward. Doesn’t matter if I void the warranty at this point, there are no dealers near me anyway.

    Apparently BMW will no longer sell the shop Manual so I’m hoping someone knows where there is an “online” version.

    Thanks!
    Pete.

    Welcome to the forum! Yeah, this has become something of an issue for those that still want to wrench. There has been some discussions about manuals being available online for limited time periods but the price is pretty steep. Here's at least one past discussion about The Right to Repair:

    There are bootleg manuals available on eBay. I used to be steadfastly against buying such things, but since BMW changed their view of what is ethical behavior in regards to manuals I became far less steadfast.

    R1250 Shop Manual

    I purchased a PDF version of the BMW 1250 GSA repair manual for a small price. It has a nice interactive menu, but not with additional task required like the original BMW Manuals. But it works fine and provides all the info I need for repairs and service. I believe I purchased it on eBay last year. I completely understand the argument from many of the forum posts on this topic, but if you like the bike you need a service manual. I cannot afford to take my bike to the dealer for service. Besides I want to understand how the bike works. There were several options at the time for purchase and could be had on a scan disk or immediate download. Try one and get on with what you want to do....which is ride a great bike and service/fix it yourself.
