Well have beem riding my g310GS for about 2 months now and i've clocked 4700km. Well here are some issues i need help with.

1. High idling
Everyday when i start my bike, it idles at 4000rpm fixed till i ride for abit. After that while at nuetral, it keep jumps from 2500rpm-4000rpm. Constant up and down. Is it normal or is there a way to fix it?

2.vibration.
The vibration i get from the bike seems to get worst. I can't recal having intense vibration since my early days with the bike. But currently it actually starts to annoy me on foot pegs, handle bar and tank area.

3.bike temp
Well this cause i have a high feeling its because of issue no.1 and also i live in a pretty humid country, singapore.

Nevertheless, i've loved this bike ever since i saw a pic of it online. If only i can solve all this issues i would be really happy and ride with pride. So please, anything anyone has to say about my issues, help me out. Hope to solve mainly issue no.1 asap.

Thank you ,
Irfan

1. The idling problem needs to be looked at by a dealer. Definitely not normal. Mine idles high-ish, about 1700 rpm, but never fluctuates like yours.


2. The vibration might be a problem, but I don't know what you consider to be an "intense" level. It is a single cylinder, so you have to expect some. I personally don't feel much with my 310 R, some through the tank, but the pegs, seat and handlebars don't transmit much. At which RPMs do you feel it most?


3. What does your temperature reading say? A number tells you more than a feeling.

I bought mt G310GS recently, and Yes, I am quite surprised with 3 things that I highly didn't expect from a BMW bike.

1) The vibration is just crazy even on gear 4 and 5. The engine is more noisier than even the exhaust.

2) The low torque in this bike is concerning, in sharp turns, the bike seems like its engine is going to turn off any moment.

3)Lastly, This bike fails to stay ON in the morning in 'neutral.' It keeps going off. It only stays on when you rev the throttle about 2 to 3 times.

I hope BMW will find a solution soon!!!

1) I don't have any experience with the GS since I own the R. I'd say that's not normal as I experience very slim vibration even on high RPM. About the engine being noisier than the exhaust I agree, the exhaust is hardly audible if at all.

2) Again I only own the R, but I haven't experienced any low torque moments with the bike; and that's coming from someone who accidentally tried to take off on 2nd gear at a stop and didn't stall.

3) That is definitely not normal. You should check it out at the dealer they will find it out and have it covered by the warranty.
