R1200 "Camhead" DOHC 2010-2012 Maintenance DVD
Save yourself a trip to the BMW dealer and hundreds of dollars by doing the routine maintenance on your 2010 to 2012 BMW R1200 series motorcycle yourself. The R1200 Cam-Head DOHC maintenance DVD from JVB Productions shows you how to do required jobs ranging from the simple, like an oil change, to the more involved tasks, such as adjusting the valves, that many owners shy away from. Among the maintenance procedures explained in the DVD are:
JVB has included the necessary tools, supplies and torque specifications to complete all the listed services. I have also added many helpful tips and notes to make this as simple as possible.
Consider this, the tool to remove and install the alternator belt is nearly $150, JVB will teach you how to do it with no special tools, a savings of $125 right there!
A typical 6K service will run you around $300-350, depending on location. The brake bleed alone can run as high as $200.
What JVB did not include, since he felt they were self explanatory, was how to check your oil, tires, lights, and side/center stand.
The DVD should assist those of you on the fence in deciding you CAN do these expensive services yourself, and save money for those all important farkles, and gas for riding!
This DVD is produced into a master pressed format like a store bought movie which should be viewable on most DVD formats (NTSC), as well as virtually any lap-top computer. Many top line DVD players in Europe also play this format, though it is the North American Standard. See this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTSC for locations in which this DVD will definitely work. In some cases you may need to use the basic Windows DVD player on your computer or laptop.
