Exceeding 600 miles before first service
« on: July 24, 2020, 04:14:41 PM »
I have my first service appointment scheduled for next Saturday, August 1st. I already have ~650 miles on the clock.

Would you feel comfortable putting on a few hundred more miles before the first service? I'm finding it hard to NOT ride before then...

Appreciate any thoughts on the matter.

What does your dealer say ?
10% over  I doubt is a problem, 40% definitely not acceptable I reckon.

EDIT. Taking my own advice, and RTFM, BMW specify the service should be between 300 and 750 miles, so you have a small amount of leeway left.

Thanks for the edit. I went back and kind of facepalmed at my own question. But the 750 miles makes me feel a little better.

Thanks. Ended up making it in on Saturday with a tad under 750.

Now to really ride.
