    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?

    This does not show it needs to be installed by a dealer.
    I didn't find where it states it needs to be installed by a dealer, but it may be staring me in the face and I missed it

    The quick story is..

    Parts are covered - but labor is not - if the parts were installed by other then a dealer. If the parts were installed by a dealer, parts and labor are covered.

    Simple.

    Here is the statement about dealer installed parts warranty

    I believe that many BMW riders do not realize that the labor is also covered when the BMW parts are installed by a BMW dealer.

    This is the link to the warranty statement. Ignore the paragraph about the BMW Special Tools and read paragraph One, four and five together and you can see that parts installed by the BMW dealer are covered for 2 years for both part and labor. ( I removed paragraph 2 and 3 to make the reading easier)

    http://www.bmwmotorcycles.com/us/en/...sStatement.pdf

    "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.


    Thanks for to everyone for their help in confirming the 2 year labor warranty.
