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
