just IMHO that 30,000km is way too long, even after 1 year or 10,000km the fork oil is a horrible grey sludge...

I recognize I'm reviving an old thread, but it might be worth adding to it since this is the first post that pops up for S1000RR service interval with google.

http://www.ascycles.com/bmw_motorcycle_service_and_maintenance_schedules.aspx#S

There is a nice checklist we can print to help with servicing and record keeping. I'm sure this is posted in other parts of this forum, but worth sharing again.

Basically, service on these things are due every 6k miles. Some of us may elect to change the oil every 3k. Schedule posted earlier in this thread is incorrect because service shouldn't go from 6,000 to 18,000. I read the A&S schedule as basic fluid and filter every 6k and same plus valve every 12k.
