    New fill quantity for '05 and later final drives...

    I just read that the new specification for the new final drive fill is 200ml total or 180ml refill. To be done at 600mi and every 12K mi.
    The old fill amount was thought to push oil out the seals when the drive heated up. And the debris from lack of oil changes was thought to cause premature wear.
    The newest maintenance schedules show these updated recommendations.

    Thanks, Jack. I have 6000 miles on my K1200S and need to change final drive oil, any advise for a self wrencher? Is there a manual available for this procedure?
