introducing the new range of single-cylinder models, BMW Motorrad is broadening its model line-up with a clear focus on additional target groups. Proceeding from the same technical foundation, the Company has created three new motorcycles absolutely different in their features and characteristics: the G 650 Xchallenge Hard Enduro, G 650 Xmoto Street Moto, and the G 650 Xcountry Scrambler. With their outstanding product substance, their purist looks, and their exceptionally sporting riding characteristics, these single-cylinder models are filling attractive niches in the market. And through their low unladen weight of less than 160 kg or 353 lb according to the DIN standard, they offer dynamic performance for both the connoisseur and the sports-minded rider. Market launch of the new G 650 X model series is planned in good time for the beginning of the season in spring 2007. These new machines with the smallest engines in the BMW model range offer particularly the young and young-at-heart motorcycle rider exactly the right entry into the world of BMW motorcycles, but are not entry-level bikes in the conventional sense of the word: On the contrary, the G 650 Xchallenge Hard Enduro will thrill the customer who wishes to really benefit from the enormous offroad potential of his machine. The G 650 Xmoto Street Moto, in turn, with its very impressive active riding qualities, offers the genuine enthusiast a new dimension in riding pleasure. The G 650 Xcountry Scrambler, finally, stands for carefree riding pleasure and nimble performance both on the road and off the beaten track. Indeed, this unique machine is able to meet all kinds of requirements and offer virtually all riding qualities ranging from city use via country roads and small, winding lanes, all the way to offroad tracks presenting the most challenging requirements. The G 650 Xcountry therefore conveys the classic but relaxed feeling of riding a genuine Scrambler as well as the concept of “wandering” on your motorcycle into today’s world in a most modern style. And last but certainly not least, riding pleasure is guaranteed under all conditions and in every situation, since the G 650 Xcountry offers the same outstanding engine and running gear qualities as its two very sporting “sister models

Entering its next generation, BMW Motorrad Integral ABS is taking a quantum leap in the process of evolution, advancing from a stand-alone solution acting only on the brakes into a fully networked all-round system. Offering the new generation of Integral ABS, BMW Motorrad provides the foundation for additional dynamic riding control systems with a reduction in technical requirements and features. And following the customer’s wishes, this new generation also opens up the option in future for further-reaching rider assistance functions. The first step in this direction is BMW Motorrad ASC Automatic Stability Control available as of 2007. This system serving to control drive spin on a production motorcycles is being introduced as an optional extra on the touring models in the BMW K and Boxer Series. Once again, therefore, BMW is acting as the pioneer in the introduction of advanced safety technologies on the motorcycle. This further enhances the leadership which BMW Motorrad has shown in the area of active safety for more than 15 years. Choosing the right development partner for both systems, BMW Motorrad obviously had to focus on that partner’s specific competence in control technology and the networking of functions within the vehicle. In recent years, major car suppliers have become aware of the technical challenges presented by the motorcycle with its specific riding dynamics and the growing potential for motorcycle control systems in the market. The decisive point in preselection of the development partner was the willingness and ability to develop specialised solutions suitable for use on BMW motorcycles. So taking this into account, joint development of the new generation of ABS brake technology started together with Continental-Teves in early 2003. Integral ABS. BMW Motorrad’s new Integral ABS technology has been developed separately from the previous system and the entire layout of the system has been newly conceived from the ground up. Capitalising on progress in technology in both hydraulics and electronics, the development engineers have succeeded in simplifying the architecture of the system while at the same time enhancing its functions to an even higher standard. The result is supreme stopping power and very short stopping distances even without electrical power assistance on the brakes.

Details: All R 850/R 1100 and K 1200 RS models produced from December 1997 have received a new clutch disc, manufactured by VALEO, and a new pressure plate (see applicable part numbers below). Earlier production for both series can be fitted with the new parts. However, due to changes in specifications (a thicker pressure plate, a thinner clutch disc), the new VALEO clutch disc is not compatible with the old pressure plate. In this application, the new clutch disc and pressure plate must be replaced as a pair. Series Production: R 850/R1100 models: Starting with December 1997 production. K 1200 RS: Starting with December 1997 production. Part Number: R 850/R1100 Models: VALEO Clutch Disc: 21 21 2 325 864 Used only in conjunction with Pressure Plate: 21 21 2 325 863 R 850/R1100 models: VALEO Clutch Disc with reduced play on gearbox input shaft (KD – Scheibe): 21 21 2 325 862 Used only in conjunction with Pressure Plate: 21 21 2 325 863 K 1200 RS: VALEO Clutch Disc: 21 21 2 332 973 Used only in conjunction with Pressure Plate: 21 21 2 332 974 Attention: For R 850/R1100 and K 1200 RS models with production dates of 12/97 and later, all clutch parts can be replaced individually, as the new pressure plate will already be installed. On earlier production examples, installing the new VALEO clutch disc without replacing the pressure plate will not allow the clutch to completely disengage.

BMW Motorcycles New Boxer (R 259) Gearbox Repairs Manual

cause: Gears are not correctly and fully engaged. The edges of the shift dogs and shift gears are rounded. Solution: Beginning with the 1997 model year, a modified set of gears has been introduced in production. Service Remedy: Installation of tolerance-optimized gears and shift forks is now possible. Parts: The installation of the optimized parts is to be done in accordance with the listing on the next page, based on the individual gearbox type and nature of complaint . We also recommend installation of the new “clean bearings” where applicable as noted. Clean Bearings: BMW has introduced deep-groove ball bearings which are sealed, therefore the bearings operate in their own lubricant rather than the gearbox lubricant. Clean bearings provide longer life expectancy and on some models provide the opportunity to extend gearbox lubrication intervals without reducing bearing life expectancy. Note: On a gearbox before the introduction of clean bearings, the layshaft roller bearing cannot be replaced with a ball bearing, since the ball bearing’s outer diameter is larger and the layshaft is longer. On the input shaft, we recommend always using the new ball bearing instead of the tapered roller bearing. Caution: New Shimming Procedure!

Install an oil relief valve PN 11 51 1 342 248 into the oil system (item #11 below). This valve was installed in production since black engine number 41956271, and silver engine number 41959303. This valve allows the oil in the cooling circuit to return to the crankcase when the engine is shut off. This will make it easier to determine the ngine oil level, and reduce the possibility of engine oil over-fill. Install new FR 6 DDC spark plugs, part number 12 12 1 342 125. Follow the procedures in the riders manual during start-up and running-in. Do not start the engine until you are ready to go for the road test. Don’t warm up the engine by letting it idle. Please advise the customer to review the starting, and running-in procedures in the Rider’s Manual. Please advise the customer of the 10w30 or 10w40 mineral based oil for the running-in. Also advise him/her not to top up the oil until it reached the minimum oil level as shown in the Rider’s Manual. Topping off prior to the minimum mark can create the illusion of additional oil consumption. This will be covered under the terms of the BMW Motorcycle Limited Warranty (one time only). Authorization is Required. File a warranty claim. Use the following:
