Title: BMW R 1200 RS Tool List Recommendations
Post by: zer0netgain on April 08, 2018, 08:40:18 am
Pulled the trigger and got the bike.  Can anyone recommend the specific “non-typical” tools one will need to do most any maintenance or repair as a DIY project?  Obviously you can leave out tools that are only needed for jobs best left to a BMW shop.  Thanks.  :cool:

Look here first.....
Videos, instructions, DVD, resources, tools list (scroll to bottom of page), spec sheets, capacities, etc.
I highly recommend his DVDs....

And if you get one of these you can do almost all the servicing yourself:   scan and diagnose all bike systems, and  reset service intervals (required after oil changes, etc.).  It has saved me many thousands of $ in dealership serving costs.

This is the kit I've carried on the last 3 BMW's I've owned, handles most common fittings and such for any on the road repairs. I have a very well equipped roll away tool chest for other maintenance and you'll need a oil filter cap for your socket wrench for oil changes. What you need really depends on how deep in Maintenance and Repair you're going to go. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/cruztools-rtb1-roadtech-bmw-tool-kit

Looks pricey for what you get.  I’ve already sourced tools I need and most everything else I already have.  Do like the handy carry case.
