    The silver is matte.

    By the way, the silver and black bikes come with silver wheels.

    I have a yellow and the black wheels look sweet.

    Yeah HCMiller52 is correct. They stopped importing the R1200S into the U.S. after 2007, there weren't any 2008 models imported. You'll notice the BMW U.S. sites show the R1200S as a 2007 model, not...

    You jumped in mid conversation. Read a few posts back. When I posted about 80W140 I also mentioned my dealer used 10W50. I was just confirming for the skeptics that 10W50 was in my rider manual.

    Yep, which brings up the question that others have posted - why are dealers deviating from 75W90?

    While checking for recommended final drive viscosity in my manual I double checked the oil table. ...

    Charts on Valvoline 75w90 vs. 80w140

    I couldn't find charts for Spectro but I did find for Valvoline GL-5 Hypoid oil.

    They show the viscosities at different temps.

    Yep good point. Operating temps for the tranny and FD are different. The FD definitely runs much cooler than the tranny.

    I understood that 75w140 would function like a 75 weight oil at cold...

    I read it again and that still wasn't clear. What I'm trying to say is that you suggested it's not linear and I agree. That should clear it up.

    I looked up the oil specs for the R12S and from what you've posted it matches the R12GS. Note that 14F is the lower LIMIT for 20W50, it doesn't necessarily mean it cold cranks or performs well at...

    I've sent my 10W40 and 20W50 to Blackstone for testing in the past for my R1100S. I guess I can send the 10W50 for testing but it wouldn't be an exact comparison given different bikes.

    Not really. I tend to think 10W50 fits my situation. If I lived in a hotter climate year round, I would use 20W50 no doubt. And if I raced my bike I might actually use a single grade oil like some...

    BMW 80W140 and 10W50

    I picked up my bike from it's 600 mile service last week and the service invoice states they used BMW 80W140 for the final drive. They also used BMW 10W50 for the engine. Odd that they used grades...

    Helibars coming for R12S

    I just read this on the Pelican Parts forum. It looks like they'll be coming out with risers in the near future, estimated around $250-$260.
