    Where can I find a copy of BMW's 2 year parts and Labor Warranty statement

    Does anybody know where I can find a copy or link stating that BMW dealer installed parts are covered by a two year parts and labor warranty? Thanks for your help.

    Did you buy the bike new? If you did (in the US) it came with a warranty booklet titled

    Consumer Warranty Information
    2005 U.S.Motorcycles

    On page 24 starts the section titled "Limited Warranty --- Original BMW Motorcycle Parts" discusses the 24 months with no mileage restriction warranty.

    Then there is this pdf: http://www.bmwmotorcycles.com/us/en/...sStatement.pdf

    The first paragraph of that PDF is worded that same as some of the content in my '05 Consumer Warranty Information booklet.

    Interesting. I did not understand the issue of labor previously. I looks like the labor is covered if originally installed by a dealer, but no labor covered otherwise. Still, that is a generous warranty in my estimation. But then again, warranty is often only as good as the dealer you are dealing with...at first try.

    This is what Norman at Engle Motors told me several years ago.

    Still no confirmation on 2 year LABOR warranty on parts

    Thanks Marchyman for the information.

    I read page 24 in the Consumer Warranty booklet and I did not see anything about the LABOR being covered for 24 months when a new BMW part is installed by a BMW dealer. I might have overlooked it.

    Read carefully--PARTS not covered either if not installed by BMW dealer.

    This makes it sound like it does not have to be installed by a dealer.

    To obtain service under this warranty
    for parts purchased over the counter
    or by mail order from an authorized
    BMW motorcycle retailer, the
    defective part(s) or accessories must
    be brought to an authorized BMW
    motorcycle dealer. Upon presentation
    of the original sales invoice showing
    the purchase date and BMW part
    number, the BMW dealer will repair or
    replace said part(s) or accessories
    covered by this warranty free of
    charge. This warranty does not cover
    labor costs for the removal or
    installation of the part(s) or
    accessories.


    Could you copy and paste the section that makes it sound like it has to be installed by dealer?

    Thanks Lee, you found it.

    For everybody else reading this post the last paragraph in the 1st column explains that the parts and labor are covered for two years. I copied paragraphs from the first column of the link Lee posted. When you read the paragraphs together it states that BOTH Parts and Labor are covered for two years. Thanks Lee for finding this statement.

    "Sold On or After April 1, 2003
    BMW of North America warrants
    Original BMW Parts, and Original
    Remanufactured BMW Parts,
    imported by BMW of North America
    and installed by an authorized BMW
    motorcycle dealer, purchased over
    the counter or by mail order from an
    authorized BMW motorcycle dealer,
    against defects in materials and
    workmanship for a period of 24
    months without mileage limitations,
    commencing with the date of
    purchase"

    "The warranty period shall commence
    from the date of installation on all
    original or original remanufactured
    parts installed by an authorized BMW
    motorcycle dealer. Warranty on parts
    replaced during the warranty period
    will remain in effect for the duration of
    the vehicle warranty or the
    replacement parts warranty,
    whichever is longer"

    "To obtain service under this warranty
    for parts installed by an authorized
    BMW motorcycle dealer, the BMW
    motorcycle must be presented to an
    authorized BMW motorcycle dealer.
    Upon presentation of the original
    repair order invoice or bill-of-sale
    showing the installation date and
    BMW part number, the dealer will
    repair or replace said part(s) or
    accessories covered by this warranty
    without charge for parts or labor to the
    customer."

    The last paragraph covers something I never asked.
    Looks like you don't have to return to the same dealer that made the original repairs.
    This is a good thing if you're on a trip, have a repair done on the West Coast, and the part fails when you're home on the East Coast.

    Good point about being on the road.

    I wonder if you have to carry all your receipts with you or if the out of state dealer is able to pull up you purchase and service history from another dealer. If not then we need to have the receipts scanned and stored on a cloud to be able to access them on the road.
