I’ve changed all three oils (motor, final drive and transmission) a number of times on the Magic Carpet. Today I got to pass that knowledge along to another BMW K1200LT rider. Mike needed to change the three oils. He headed to BMW Motorcycles of Atlanta and they set him up with just the supplies he’d need, including the crush washers. I headed over to Mike’s house this afternoon and we took care of it. The motor oil is always pretty straight forward. The final drive is pretty easy. The hard part comes in with the transmission oil. You need to remove exhaust braces, a belly pan and have little room to work. But in a little more than 3 1/2 hours we got them all done. It felt good to show someone how to do it but most of all we had fun doing it.
