BMW F650 Funduro revision checklist in Spanish

Hi all,
for my bike's last revision in Santiago de Chile I translated the BMW revision requirements (as good as I could) from German to Spanish. The list consists the required checks for the an inspection (every 10000 km) plus annual service plus changing the brake fluid which has to be done every two years. Maybe this results useful to somebody..
Corrections/amendmends are of course welcome :-)
Best regards

How about turning that into a table - with the English and German equivalents - then I can add it to the tech translation page?!
