    I doubt it is the battery. You'll need a code reader to find out what's wrong. You'll need a GT1 to change the sensor (dealer).

    Thanks for the updated information. Do they list a torque spec for the fill plug on the new style drives yet? I've been unable to find one.

    final drive fluid capacity

    Does the new style final drive (drain plug at 6 oclock) use the same amount of fluid as the older style (drain plug at 9 oclock)? 220 ml?

    I have one. Lost my drive in November and it had the 600 mile change, a 6k mile change, and a 12k mile change. The drive went out at 14k miles.

    Thanks. I didn't know the amount of interference used in the drive. If 100C is enough, then it shouldn't be too hard.

    Mineral oil literally means "oil from rocks". All crude is mineral oil. If you can find Havoline 20w-50 (usually easy to find), then you're good to go.

    I can't help you with the Motul, but any quality 20w-50 can be used to top up your bikes without fear.

    I believe it has to do with the filter design (blowout prevention) more than the motor design.

    I have a ND on a 95 and it's great. Weighs less and spins the motor really fast. I have a Valeo on a 93 and it works OK too. Depends on what you want to spend.

    My 07 doesn't have the light but it's over a year old now (bought Nov 06). Did you ever have your BMW reprogrammed by the dealer or is a new 07?
