HEIGHT 5ft 9in WEIGHT 78kg The 6000-mile service has just been carried out at Wollaston BMW in Northampton. The service would normally consist of a change for the oil, oil filter, air filter and then a long list of general checks but as my bike only just had the oil and filter changed after the loss of an inspection bolt, the oil and filter stayed put. Getting to the air filter was tricky as it required the removal of two side panels, fuel tank cover, a couple of small filler panels and a multitude of bolts. The filter was a bit grubby but it was the amount of straw, grit and filth on the outside of the airintake that surprised me most.
6000 miles and all is good with the BMW 006 103
