Hi there, i am seriously thinking about buying the 310gs and i am in the process of information gathering (to be formal!). since this bike became available in the Greek market recently i believe that you guys know more. my main concern is that it's my first hi-tech bike (i mean electronic gizmos, fuel injection, etc.) and to keep up with the warranty i ll have to visit only official BMW service-shops (that means a trip to Athens even for an oil change). although i am willing to go through this ordeal i would like to know what to expect from the bike. has anyone had any issues with the electrics or other parts of the bike ? (besides the cold start issues).any responses would be much appreciated. greetings from Greece to everybody
First off, the dealer does not have to do the oil changes to keep warranty valid. You, have to keep receipts for
proof of the proper filter and oil. You, must keep a record of the service you have done.
The dealer, has to do the required maintenance at specified intervals.
As what to expect from the bike, there are so many threads here with those experiences.
Keep in mind if you have not already, there are some negative issues and reactions to this motorcycle.
BUT, go to any forum for any motorized vehicle, and you will find the similiar reactions, because nothing is perfect.
Not many motorcycles include, a 3 year warranty with road side assistance too.
I would say a huge majority of owners of the G310's are very satisfied.
Hope this helps a bit.
