Yes strictly speaking that is correct. However I have had a slight cylinder
head weep on both my bikes at mileages between 20 and 30000km completely
rectified by a re-torque (as per 1000km re-torque). Just the one additional
re-torque in both cases has cured all signs of a weep, now at ~80000km on R
and ~70000km on the RT.
A salesman at my local BMW dealer told me that oilheads need to have their
heads retorqued every 10000km (6000mi). I said I never heard of that
before. The BMW maintenance schedule only indicates a retorquing at the
first 1000km(600mi) service. Is this true?
