I have never seen the glass as a replacable part, however if you can buy it and the seal as a spare part from BMW it should press in with a little loctite master gasket. seeing the actual seal should give a good indication of how it fits. I hope it is in the clutch casing and not the crank case, as i guess it would install from the inside

Front fork oil capasity

When reassembling the forks on a motorbike the main spring and all other internal components should be in the fork tubes then add the oil, as to weight I assume you mean fork oil viscosity. Fork oil for general use is usually 5w or 10w but you need to look up the specific oil type for your bike, also the capacity is unique to each bike but you can measure the oil by pouring the required amount into the upright tubes make sure that the levels are the same, use a straightened wire coat hanger and measure the level in each fork so that any differences are reduced so as to not affect the safe handling of the motorbike as uneven forks can be very dangerous.
Look on youtube to find videos of fork oil change etc.

Hi. I have a 2009 BMW r1200rtse motorbike. I serviced it at 10,000klms and it is now on 15,000. The oil light came on and I see no oil leaks. I would love to get a PDF owners manual and know if the sight...

I have same model. The boxer engines do use oil and the levels need to be checked regularly. The sight glass at the bottom left hand side of the engine is for oil and the oil needs to be in the red ring. FYI my bike uses about 250ml of oil every 2000 miles or so. I always keep a bottle of Castrol Power in the garage! Somewhat perversely the oil consumption reduces as mileage increases. Plenty of infromation about this on the Internet!

How do you check the oil level on the 2002 BMW r1150r?

Just put the bike up on it's stand or use the kick stand with a shim under to get the bike near level.
Then use a flash light and look low on the left side of the engine and you'll
see a small round flush mounted glass the size of a nickle.
The oil should appear dark on the bottom half of that sight glass and if properly filled said level will cut right through the middle of the glass...if the dark line is below half then add oil!

How much oil is needed for 1996 Suzuki GSX 750? Want to change myself, thanks.

i dont know exactly how much oil you need, when you put oil in your motorbike you can see a small window glass( right side) on your engine. just put oil up to middle of it.

2002 wr400 yamaha motorbike 1 oil change.a how many litres b oil type to use c best way to check oil when changed

You have either a dipstick or sightglass correct? The oil goes in the dipstick hole . After oil and filter change pour in 1 qt of oil and check your level w/dipstick or sightglass. Slowly top up your oil checking every 1/4 qt you pour in. Bike should be held level on level 3 qts of synthetic oil when ur at the store....Good Luck to you friend....Tim
p.s. if you don't have an owners manual, get one from your dealer,they are an invaluable tool.
