I use a turkey baster and about six inches of fuel line. Put the fuel line into the final drive, then squeeze the bulb of the turkey baster and then put then protruding end of the hose against the end of the baster and **** the oil out of there. The final drive only holds a pint or so. My old K bike had an allen head drain plug, I guess the newer final drives have been "upgraded".

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

Did the 2002 r1150gs come with a final drive with drain plug at bottom of fd? mine has a drain at the bottom. I was surprised.

All 1150 and 1100 GS bikes had a drain and fill plug on the final drive. The R1200GS did not come with a fill plug and the drain plug was located on the rear of the final drive on the early machines. It has since been relocated to the bottom of the housing on later models.

Could anyone tell me how to reset the oil change light on a BMW R 1200Rt 2010 bike ??

Unfortunately, the service indicator can only be reset via the dealer computer. The aftermarket GS-911 code reader is supposed to have this feature soon or maybe already has it.

Check this site for GS-911

Final drive has noise coming from it and gear box

i have one of these,check the oil level in the final drive and the colour,replace with good quality 80-90 gear oil,if the noise doesnt go away you may find that one of the bearings in the final drive is worn,often what happens on these bikes is that because the final drive is virtually maint free people dont change the oil and the oil becomes contaminated with particles from the crownwheel,pinion,and bearings and the bearings will evetually fail,i change the final drive oil on mine every time i do the engine oil change and after125000km is still dead quiet

In general are tune ups expensive at suzuki ??

Expect to pay about $200 at a dealer for a tune up. Most of that will be labor, checking your carburetors, air filter, fuel filter, and changing the oil. Call first, some places will not even work on older bikes anymore.

Changing oil

The drain plug for your bike should be on the botom of the engine. Remove the plug and drain the oil. Remove the oil filter and repalce it with a fresf one. Fill the new oil until the site glass or dip stick is at the correct marked level.
