GS310 not Reliable concern

The first 800km i had waterpump faulty and replaced under warranty with 2 weeks bikeless and now at 3800km i have Regulator faulty, bikeless over a week and still waiting part from BMW, hope i would not wait a1000 years.
I think my GS is a lemon. Anyone having ussue with yours? Thinking of selling and move to Kawasaki or honda. Cheers.

Several have had a bad stator. The service manager can check availability on line and if available can order for immediate shipment. You should be given some idea of when problem will be fixed. The check for regulator or stator only takes a few minutes.

The other problem also lack of customer service from BMW. The local dealer did few follows up but no firm response from BMW when the part will be available.

In Australia there is no way of contacting BMW without going through a dealer.

Yes, you are right. I have followed up with dealer and they cant even tell me when the part will available. BMW is very bad,They seem dont care and irresponsible. To a new buyer....just think twice when you think of buying GS310. It's a lemon.

I've actually had no problems in the last 7 months of owning the GS. The dealer has been good as well. So assessment would that it's a lemon.

It is possible some individual bikes may have some defects, but that does not mean the entire bike production model is a lemon. Generalisation is a bit dangerous

In NZ we go through the dealer for bikes, cars, and just about everything. It's extremely rare to go direct to the manufacturer.

Fault of stator is really a not good new
In Italy BMW just announced extension to 4 years (from 2) of the official warranty on new bikes bought starting from 1st of January.
I've taken my GS in October, so I'm out...
Really disappointing

Get your bike thoroughly checked about 1 month before warrantee runs out. Here in Australia, we have organisations that check 2nd hand bikes/cars prior to purchase, these organisations also check bikes/cars prior to warrantee running out. Costs about $140 (for a car) and very worth it, saved me about $800 once and saved my dad around $5,000 (new transmission under warrantee).

In the US they come with a 3yr/36k mile warranty. Most Japanese bikes are either 12 month/12k mile or 12 month unlimited miles warranty.
