    Your valves were worn due to valve recession caused by BMW installing inadequate material valve seats.

    75K should be nothing for Nikasil cylinders and I wouldn't do anything to them.

    The "specs" are SAF-XO. Does your choice specifically say in print on the bottle it can replace SAF-XO? If not, well it doesn't meet the spec.

    Did it many times and only advice I can think of is make sure top is truly at top and not rotated. Wiring isn't the problem I think.

    It's mostly image, but if your gear is mesh maybe it will let in too much dirt.

    Speaking of image, I'm waiting to see someone on a Vespa or C650 wearing full GS gear.
