My Issue With My New G310R
Hello this is my first post on this forum. I've been reading the post's on the forum and have found a lot of this information really helpful which is great. To give some background information, I just turned 20 years old and I live in Modesto California about an hour and a half to two hours inward of San Francisco. I have never owned or ridden motorcycles before this one other than at a safety course.
Today is my 6th day owning the bike. I was riding to my local cycle gear shop in town to get a bike lock and my motorcycle was riding perfectly fine. When I came out of the store to ride to school, my motorcycle had only been off for about 10 minutes. I then turned my 310 on and it fired up normally but then shut off about twenty seconds later. I continued to try and turn it back on a couple more times but it just sounded like it was turning over and over but wouldn't fire up completely. The check engine light came on and also the triangle light with the exclamation came on at the same time.
I then called the dealer that I got the motorcycle from and they gladly picked me up and got me on a R1200R loaner that they have as soon as they could to be able to get me to school. I was a bit nervous at first having gone from really never riding a motorcycle just a week ago to riding the 1200 today but it actually wasn't that scary.
Anyhow, I have been reading some issues on the bike with cold starts and it having to do with fuel or possibly the battery. I have yet to hear back from the dealer but I will let you know what has happened to it and if any of you have suggestions please let me know.
I work for BMW but on the car side of things at my local dealership which is separate from the motorcycle dealership. I love my bike and got an absolutely ridiculous deal for being an employee that maybe i'll talk about in a future post if anyone is interested.
