The bike is now two years old and almost out of warranty. This is a list of issues I have had. Is there anyone else out there with similar issues?
4 front brake rotors
1 front wheel bearing
1 clutch cable and clutch plates due to clutch cable length incorrect -- replacement size from BMW Germany
1 water pump seals (leaking)
gas tank cracked -- replaced
"campaign" -- front wheel rotor bolts replaced with different washers
This is my 5th BMW and I have ridden almost 300,000 miles. This is not a "rider" issue.
BMW North America will not compensate me in any way for the downtime or the motels and other expenses associated with the above occurrences.
Many thanks to the dealers who have gone above and beyond to get me back on the road -- these breakdowns have occurred in several different states. Special thanks to Max's BMW in New Hampshire, Two Jacks in Wilkes-Barre, PA, Cross Country BMW in New Jersey, Victory BMW, Chandler, AZ, BMW Southeast Michigan.
