    RT Maintenance Schedule - From BMW Rider's Manual

    I found that the latest "Rider's Manual" for the RT includes the maintenance schedule for the motorcycle. This was not printed in previous editions. I made a photo of the appropriate pages, but the upload process reduced its resolution. I think it's still legible, and hope it's helpful to someone:

    I also found this little gem in the owners manual.

    I can do that for you but it would be better to download the PDF file from the website. Let me know which you prefer I can post a screen shot or send you the link to download.

    Maybe that's because the new engine only has two?

    Nice to hear from you reg26! Welcome to the Forums...or should that be Fora? Nonetheless, good to hear from you.

    Anyway, there are four US versions of the K52 RT Manual, depending on the production date of the particular RT. Reece pointed the link to the website which lets you get to the manuals. All 2014+ bikes are K52s in the BMW parlance. The 2016 manual seems to be about 16 pages longer than the manual for the 2015. I'm not so compulsive to make the comparison, but maybe someone has already done that? Anyway, in my view, more information is better.

    Here's the link to get you started: http://goo.gl/9dFiYh Click on "Service and Maintenance" and then "Rider's Manual."

    BTW- Very nice color RT!

    Sometimes we forget, that's what this whole MOA/FORUMS thing is all about; members helping other members.

    Here's the PDF excerpt from the 2016 Rider's Manual

    Here's the 3-page maintenance schedule from the Rider's Manual that applies to all RT wetheads.
