Ahh, I see - we have introduced another factor here: The kit
I only buy the filters so I don't get any parts on the side. I'd probably change them if I bought the kit (why else would you buy it). But like I said before, I do check the parts I take off before recycling

My 1st oil change I didn't even know you could by the filter only. It wasn't until the 2nd when the filter had been packed in Styrofoam w/o a plastic bag around it and some small pieces of broken foam had wedged themselves in the folds of the filter and damaged the filter. So when I took it back to the dealer they just pulled a solo filter and exchanged it. That was the first I knew you could get it by itself (or that they had some parts stocked and others I had to order and wait 10 days Seems like maintenance items would be stocked)

I will probably buy solo filters and then a kit and just replace the filter I notice the o-ring needs to be replaced and then I will have it ready vs having to wait to order it.

Thanks for the info.

Plea for help here , I have an 02 Dakar and have it in my garage i went to start it the other day and it had a dead flat battery .
Put it on the charger and left it on slow charge until it was complete.

The bikes starts runs and does everything it should do except the speedo, tach and digital read outs [clock, trip meter etc] don't work ?

The ignition lights do work ok , neutral light and others are fine .

I'm sure there is a simple fix here but it is not leaping out at me , checked fuses and there doesn't seem to be a problem there .

Thanks for looking .

Well, I've heard of some weird shit around this one. Never happened to me though. I heard that there is some way the ECU can store some energy (capacitance). I heard about it when people charged through the accessory port. I think the fix was to unhook the battery, check for voltage at the socket (which was seen) and apply a load until it "ran out". Freaky, I know. After that they hooked the battery up and everything reset. Might search over on chain gang. be careful though, in the earlier days many posters there were NOT mechanics although there is a core of good guys. Don't believe it just because it's posted with authority...kind of like this

Dang thanks for your reply , you may have hit the nail on the head , i was charging through the accessory port so your theory maybe good .

I will do as you suggest and post up tomorrow .

Thanks again.

Now, now. That's why I like this thread, not much complaining and lots of info exchange. Gravel, you're about the best ad for these bikes BMW could hope for. Oh wait, they quit making them, that's something to complain about.

Barkbusters for Dakars

I got a set of Barkbusters for my 2002 Dakar from Santa this year. When I tried to put them on, I discovered that the BB end weight won't work with a set of handlebars missing the OEM heated grips. In other words, if your Dakar's handlebars don't have heated grips, the BBs won't work.

Matt and the gang at Twisted Throttle are aware of the problem and have contacted BB about it. They even have made a quick modification to their website. Hopefully, we'll be hearing from the Aussies some time this week as to whether or not they can come up with a mod to fix the problem.


I had to drill out one of the bolts on the righthand handgurad in order to remove the OEM stuff. So I won't be able to use the original mounting bracket to reinstall that guard. If TT can't get a fix for me, I'll be looking for a replacement set of old Dakar handguards. Anyone got a set lying around?
