05' R1200RT final drive oil amount

Just changed my final drive oil on the RT. I did it by JVB's DVD saying to use 250 ML. Now I'm reading that eveyone is doing 180ML. which is right? Do I need to remove the wheel again and redo?

180ml, originally the fd was "lifetime" service interval, hence no drain plain plug the first couple of years on r1200xx. Original volume was listed at 220ml, but it was changed to 180 as some have reported due to the volume creating too much pressure and overwhelming seal integrity. So drain and refill through speed sensor hole and use 180ml of new oil.

Cheers

Unfortunately when I made the first 1200 Hexhead DVD it was listed as 220ml, but that has since changed. It is apparent you have one of the first ones of my DVD, so it was not listed correctly.

For you, and anyone else with the first run DVD, there is a corrections section on my web site: http://www.jimvonbaden.com/Corrections.html It lists this correction, and one for the rocker arm endplay bolt torque correction. This was only on the first run of DVDs from 2007.

As to changing the fluid again, I wouldn't sweat it until the next service.

final drive

thanks Jim! I just unplugged the drain plug and let 50 ML of fluid drain out. problem solved. I'm going to write that down so I don't forget it next time. tackling the valves tonight......that's the only part i wasn't 100% confident on last time.


Thank you,

Mario Cioppa
