Optimal Timing for Oil Changes in BMW Motorcycles: A Comprehensive Guide

Owning a high-quality BMW motorcycle comes with the responsibility of taking proper care of it by maintaining it.

A Comprehensive Guide

One of the most basic motorcycle maintenance steps, and one of the simplest, is changing the oil regularly. This is also a very important step, as lubricating all the moving parts leads to a longer life. What is the optimal timing for oil changes for BMW motorcycles? When you acquired your BMW motorcycle, it came with a rider’s manual. In the manual, you will find a maintenance schedule that shows you how often each service should be performed, including oil and filter changes. The mileage intervals are approximate, as these intervals could be longer or shorter, depending on how often you ride, what type of terrain you ride on, the weather you ride in, and other factors.

Here are just a few recommended oil change intervals.

  • Running-in oil and filter change every 300 to 750 miles
  • Engine oil and filter change every 6,000 miles
  • Rear bevel gear oil change every 12,000 miles

Several other parts of your motorcycle require oil changes, which are listed in the maintenance schedule. Your Rider’s Guide gives detailed instructions on how to do these oil change services yourself. However, when you bring your BMW ride into San Jose BMW Motorcycles, our knowledgeable technicians will perform an oil change service and put your bike through a BMW Motorrad Running-In Check, which includes many other services. These services include checking brake fluid levels, checking spoke tension, and using special BMW Motorrad diagnostic equipment to test your motorcycle further.
