BMW Repair & MOTs

This morning I took the K1300s over to Williams BMW to have the final drive seal replaced. I arrived just before my 08:30 slot and while I was waiting I had a cappuccino and some chocolate chip cookies. The repair took around 30 mins to complete, they replaced the seal and the oil as there is no way of measuring how much oil is actually in there. All the work was completed under warranty. They do know how to look after you though, but really I shouldn’t have had the problem in the first place.

Later on this morning we had booked the bikes in for there MOTs. The ZX-9R’s MOT had expire quite a few months ago, Helen’s MOT was still valid. We decided to take them to Summit Service Centre because of a recommendation. It is a car garage but he also does bike MOTs as well. We arrived at 11:30 and the MOTs were completed fairly quickly and both bikes passed. Once we arrived home I had a look at the certificate and noticed that the ZX-9R had only done 500 miles since last year. I couldn’t believe it had only done that little. But due to the weather, Helen’s ankle and the Goats we haven’t been out that much really. When we have been out I have used the BMW to get used to it before our recent tour.
