The 'Maintenance' chapter describes work
involving the checking and replacement of
wear parts that can be performed with a
minimum of effort.
If specific tightening torques are to be
taken into account for installation, these
are listed. An overview of all required
tightening torques is contained in the
chapter "Technical data".
Microencapsulated screws
The microencapsulation is a chemical
threadlocker. An adhesive is used to create
a solid connection between screw and nut
or component. Microencapsulated screws,
therefore, are suitable for single use only.
After removal, the internal thread must be
cleaned to remove adhesive. During instal-
lation, a new microencapsulated screw must
be used. Therefore, before removal, ensure
that you have suitable tools for cleaning the
thread and have a replacement screw. If you
carry out the work improperly, the locking
function of the screw might no longer be
guaranteed, which puts you in danger!
Special tools and thorough specialized
knowledge are required to carry out some of
the work described here. If you are in doubt,
consult a specialist workshop, preferably
your authorized BMW Motorrad retailer.
