    Remove variator without BMW special tool?

    I bought the tool back in 2013, the dealer I am sure made a mistake as I paid $18 Canadian (about $14 American) I have used it 4 times now (paid for istelf many times)

    Need the 9-1-1 on GS-911 for TPMS sensor replacement

    Timing chain recall visual check

    Your dealer would have it documented tell him you want it done

    Slipped cam chain.

    I realize it is a paper weight back in the early days 2013 a few engines were replaced, the dealers just gave new bikes away instead of fixing. I am buying the parts (I got the tensioner last week and that is when I heard the system was changed) now I have to order the rest of the parts. This sucks
