I wonder if BMW dealers have to wait for the back orders too or is the pipeline, to them, filled? I only wonder this for the owners who do have their dealer install new plugs (like me). I had mine changed late summer so should be good until early summer 2020.

I had the bike on the lift yesterday with all the tupperware removed for cleaning. I found a bolt missing (guess it's not just Harleys) and so I stopped by the dealer in Tucson to buy one. I asked about the plugs while I was there and they did not indicate getting them would be an issue.

Why are you replacing the plugs, other than the mothership says to? We use unleaded fuel, and if the engine is in good order no reason they can't go much longer than 40K. The Valve clearance check is also ridiculously early in the engines life, remember guys it benefits BMW financially if you replace things on an accelerated program.

I've had the bike two years and put a bit over 40k on it. I know the plugs can go longer but the weather is cooling off here now so I can ride the Harley while I go over the 1600. Gonna do the radiator fluid and clean everything good while it's apart. Plugs and a valve check aren't much more at that point. Brake fluid needs to be changed too. You know what they say about idle hands.
