05/1998


Kilometers:
When bought: 10000km

Mecanical point of view:
Engine oil leak when i bought it ,but solved for free by BMW dealer.
New battery after nerly 6 years service
It seems that both engine and gears became much less harder since it was 50000km (easy to ride on twistie road on 5th gear from 2000rnd/min)


Service:
By BMW ervery 10000km


Tires:
Rear about 13000km-----> type Michelin T66X
Front about 14000km-----> type Michelin T66X
Michelin have 2 problems, noisy and not to good on wet. On dry the grip is over the top and there is no problem for putting the crash bar on the tarmac(while riding of course). I stopped the Metzeler because of not so much grip and shorter life, mainly the front

When showing to GSXR ZXR ZZR XX R1 R6...what it is really : 7,5 liters/100km

In every days life, town twisties highway ... 6liters average.
