go to hall of wisdom, for detailed procedure it is simple.

Change out every 12,000 miles or once per riding season, regardless of miles.

Now, watch this get beat to hell on a public forum...

I have used BMWGear Oil 75/140. I no longer recommend it anywhere but in the transmission.

I have since returned to BMW hypoid gear oil 80/90 GL-5 in the final drive. 100,000 miles

GL-5 seems to be required
