    If that's the case, why are K1600 owners waiting for 4 or more weeks to get parts for their bikes?

    Have to agree, there is absolutely no flow to the rear end of the K1600 when the bags are off. Kind of looks like a big ol' hook on the back of the bike. Obviously no thought was given to this...

    Ridefar: You raise a very valid point and one that makes a ton of sense. There should be some concern based on the design of the K1600 that a cracked piston at relatively low mileage is nothing to...

    Hmmmm IKchris: I'm not sure how to take your post. Perhaps "some" owners/posters are not qualified in making a determination, but that's painting with a really broad brush when you know nothing...

    When I first read this post I really didn't think much about it. However after I thought about this problem the more certain things came to my mind. First off it is highly unlikely that this piston...

    Ahhhhh Yes, the Ducati Multistrada! The only bike that could potentially tear my BMW away from me. The Multistrada is one very nice motorcycle and a pure gas to ride!!!

    Great write-up on your experience with the K1600. I too found the GTL suited my riding style much better than the GT. It was easier on my aging framework and very comfortable to ride. There are...

    OK, one more time just for grins. I personally think anything and everything should come out on a dealer or repair shop. No one bars repair shops from surfing the interweb and find out what is...

    Wow Chuck, you are one lucky son-of-a-gun! Ethanol in my area has been and continues to be an absolute nightmare. It is hard on everything from fuel injectors to fuel tanks. Last fall I went to...

    I feel your frustration with having to wait a month and a half for a simple switch replacement. It would be nice if we always had a loaner bike when ours was in the shop or that we were reimbursed...

    So KrisandarMOA, from what I can see in your replies it took almost a month and a half to repair your K1600? Is that correct?

    Do each and every K1600 owner a favor and please let us know who you actually talk to at BMWNA about your problems. It would be nice to have some names of contact individuals. Good luck!!!

    Hmmmm, I can't remember for sure, but as the clutch wears doesn't it force fluid into the master cylinder? Would be the reverse for brakes. Might be worth checking into I guess.

    Threads that ask for an opinion always run in circles. As soon as you say something that someone doesn't agree with you have opened the door for dispute, especially from the Kool-Aid drinkers.

    I agree 100% Ponch1. I had hoped that the 2013 would have some of the irritating nuances worked out of it but my timing was off. I probably should have waited a year or two before buying another...

    I can't say with complete certainty, but I would have to agree with Mr. Walker. When I had a problem with my 2012 GTL I tried my best to talk to the BMW dealer rep but all I got were his comments...

    I'm going to agree with Beemerdons on this one. I think there is a glut of K1600's because the word is getting out that they have a lot more in the way of problems than they should. Now some of...

    Well if current practice is any indicator, it will be water pumps and switches. And perhaps replacing the front shock to eliminate a very annoying squeak. I don't have a crystal ball but my guess...
