    Hi Kelly
    Sure, I'll see what I can do. Lunchtime closing Saturday for motor factors and overnight delivery might make Tuesday deadline difficult.
    You can't PM me, my subsciption expired.
    I'm on the southside of city, not far from the airport.

    Hi,
    I did a search again on the crush washer/o-ring kit I have and it does include hexhead and camhead https://www.beemerboneyard.com/fnltrnscws3.html
    Beemerboneyard.com is a USA company that I sometimes order from and they are great to deal with. So, items needed for 2009 R1200GS, Hexhead:
    Quantity Part # Description
    4L Synthetic, 20W-50 or 10W-50 or 5w-40 oil, API-SL, JASO MA rating (Note: I am open to what is used in your area but would like synthetic)
    1 Oil filter, (brand can be what’s available)
    1L 75W90 Synthetic gear oil (transmission & FD)
    4 NGK DCPR8EKC Spark plugs (another brand is ok)
    500ml Dot 4 brake fluid
    I should have crush washers but if they have them I will get them just in case mine are wrong.
    I won't have a sim card for my phone until I get there. How can I contact you? You can look me up on facebook messenger and send me a message? If you want to do that now at least we can connect?
    Kelly Tompkins. There is a picture on my profile page of a 2011 R1200RT beside a lake. Message me and I will respond. Thanks

    That looks fairly standard.
    I'll need a Mahle\Knecht code for the filter. Bboneyard or Motorworks should list it. A motor factors won't have a catalogue listing.
    Alu crush washers not likely to be available, just copper. I'll need sizes or I'll just get a selection. Mine are 16mm and 14mm. Realoem should list them.
    I'm a FB refusenik. We'll probably have to arrange a dead letter drop in Corky Park. Are you flying to ORK - or sailing into Kinsale?


    Edit: What about your alternator belt?

    Mahle oil filter OC306
    Oil drain 16mm
    Gearbox drain 14mm
    Gearbox fill 18mm
    Plugs seem to be NGK DCPR8EKC as per motoworks
    Gear oil can also be 75w90 or 80W90
    I have an old alternator belt as a spare so I shouldn't need one.
    Can you give me your mobile number and I can contact you when I get a sim card for my phone? I should arrive in Kinsale in the afternoon on Tuesday. I plan to do my maintenance on Wednesday if all goes well.
    On a side note, check out our weather for tonight & tomorrow! 170kms/hr wind. https://weather.gc.ca/city/pages/nl-18_metric_e.html

    Oil filter ordered. ETA Monday afternoon. €17 inc VAT.
    I prefer not to post personal details on an open forum.

    Maybe you're travelling by road via Cork, not arriving to the airport.
    Here's a convenient rendezvous point just a couple of hundred metres off your expected route, the N27 to Kinsale (passing the airport.)
    Circle K Petrol stn Frankfield map
    Give me a time on Tuesday and I'll see you there.
    I'll be enjoying the roads of West Cork this weekend and will be online evenings only.

    Sounds good. I will get my bike out once I get there so I will have transportation. I know the petrol Station from my past trips. Thanks

    I was very late when I got to Kinsale. What is your schedule for tomorrow morning? I am just getting the bike in order tonight. Name a time and I can meet you. Thanks, Kelly
