I was thinking about this a few months ago. The bike does seem to be ticking much louder. I haven't ridden since July dues to service light popping up with a date.

I need to haul her in for side stand and brake recall. I was going to ask about it then.

Normally, camshaft and rockers last the life of the bike. never heard of anyone replacing them on modern motorcycles. in the most common scenario, if there is noise in the engine, either the camshaft chain is too loose or there is too much clearance in the valves and valve shims need to be replaced.

I have no idea what models all of those K numbers refer to but it would appear that it is German made components that are involved, from the few bike specific references.



If that is the case then it would be a lottery winning ticket chance that components made in an Indian factory suffered the same manufacturing fault.


The 310 is almost clattery in comparison to Japanese machinery so maybe Strike Zero is just hearing the normal noises.

K02 310R
K03 310GS


mentioned on page 2 3rd paragraph.


Mainly mentioned it just in case anyone outside US has an issue as they seem to get more info than most countries motoring recalls.

Interesting. Those parts must all have the same source then. I wonder if TVS use a different source for their own model or if BMW have ironically been caught in a "must have higher quality than Indian for these parts" scenario that has backfired.

Iv'e now traded my 310GS in mainly because of the awful engine ticks, rattles and noise.
I found it quite annoying.
Don't think I will buy another BMW
