Rear swinging arm bearings
Freedom from play: check every 15000km (10000 miles) by pulling and pushing at the swinging arm, holding the dualseat grip with the left hand as shown. Fig. 55
If the swinging arm bearings require adjustment to eliminate play, the work must always be performed by an authorized BMW service workshop

Grease the rear swinging arm bearings with a grease gun, after levering off the left and right plastic caps with a screwdriver. Use a grease gun with a conical nozzle. Fig. 56

Oil the clutch cable nipple pivots (top and bottom ends) every 7500km (5000 miles). Fig. 57
