I don't have any probelms as my new 2014 GTL was just delivered to my snow surrounded garage yesterday. Main reason I chose to buy now was that it is no longer a 'new' model. Won't list them, but many issues brought up since it was introduced have been addressed. That's the best reason for not buying on the 'bleeding edge' of technology. Looking forward to a fun summer.
I just picked up my ordered '14 GTS. It's wayyyyy smoother than my '12 GT was. I can't comment yet on any waterpump leaks etc. but hopefully with a new part# for that and the switch cluster, zero pull as well, hopefully all should be corrected. Time will tell, I'm thinking Mama Beemer has things pretty well worked out by now. Yes, finally!

Last Wednesday, April 9 bbolesaz and C4 rode off to the Moto GP Races in Austin, TX. Walked out of the Blue Bonnet Cafe in Marble Falls, TX 4/12 to ride to The Circuit of Americas and we discovered a puddle of coolant under my K1600GT. Brian pulled the fairing and Tim ran for 50-50 coolant.
"However, if someone had 3 water pumps replaced, they would likely be able to successfully lemon law that bike."
Ride Group made it to Austin City Limits sign and my right boot was totally soaked with coolant, a Yamaha Rider Richard led me to Austin BMW shop!
There are currently NO new item replacement water pumps in North America, it will have to be sent over from Germany to Austin, Texas!
Had a 30 hour train ride home to Maricopa County, AZ and plenty of time to get good and mad about this ridiculous faulty water pump situation!
When Austin BMW tells me my K16 has it's FOURTH water pump installed I will fly back to Texas and my Arizona Lemon Lawsuit starts!
