Thread: YouTube 12000Mile/20000Km RTW Service Video Series

  1. #1

    YouTube 12000Mile/20000Km RTW Service Video Series

    I thought this might be worth posting up for the group if anyone is considering undertaking the scheduled maintenance on their own bike. (Wethead)
    We filmed this over 2 days in October at the end of the riding season up North. I had my ridding buddy (Chris on the Street) on the camera, while I spun the wrenches.
    Its long! which was our intention. Many folks may have already done this service, but some may prefer to let the dealership do it. We followed the service schedule sheet pretty much, plus some added checks and observations along the way. (I hope to do a follow-up video soon with all the minor points).
    I've done this service 6 times on the Wethead and maybe 20 times on Hex/Cam Heads, so I hope that you enjoy watching the series.

    Nicely done with lots of attention to detail. I can never get away with wearing a light colored shirt when working on a motorcycle; this was most impressive!!

    I didn't watch the entire video of Part 1, but I seemed to have missed the part where one "uses a big assed hammer"............

    every 12?

    Nice. Just looked at a few minutes and it seems perfect. Would this service be EVERY 12K? ie 12-24-36...Just had my 12K done and actually looking forward to tackling my next service (18) and those thereafter!

    Also, anyone have any idea where online he found those shop aid diagrams for holding the screws? (2016 R1200RT...)

    Yes, every 12k(miles)/20k(kilometers). The 6K Service skips several things, like FD service, air filter and plug change, brake fluids, and valve work.

    You also need to sequence in the calendar based events that mostly concern brake fluid, as well as engine and FD fluid regardless of mileage.

    You can review and print out every combination of mileage and age (12k, or 12k+annual) from sites like A&S Cycles but always refer to your Owners Manual included with your bike.

    Hi Mike,

    I am still working on at least 1 more follow-up video to clean up all the details of what I missed in the first series of 6...

    Mostly what I need to cover is the front wheel extra inspection/service things I do...like simply filming the removal and replacement, but also in depth cleaning and lube of the brakes.

    I'm then going to make another video of all of the modifications and "farkle" add-ons that are on my bike. Chris on the Street did one on his channel back in 2017 after we rode together, but I really need to add more commentary about why I did things, or what some of the choices are...because my choices are not the only way to do things!

    If there are other areas of interest that you would like to see documented, please PM me and we can take it "off line" so this thread doesn't get completely derailed as so often happens.

    I'm also trying to put together 3 or 4 dates and locations for 2019 to conduct this complete 12k/20k Service Tech Day. Let me know via PM if you are interested in helping host one of these sessions on in your area.

    Thanks, Brad

    Thanks very much for all of the work you put into these and posted for any and all to learn from. I've been doing my own servicing using the JVB videos, which I am also a fan of. Yours have provided me more info that I will incorporate into my next 12K.
