Hello to all,
As owners of a first year production bike, we will be the beta testers for BMW.
Now I have said I would not buy a first year production anything, but here I am
having one.
I hope the launch delay is worthy of BMW solving the problems of a new bike,
but I doubt it. As with any vehicle there will be problems/recalls.
Feel free to list any issues you have had so the rest of us can be on the
look out for these problems.
I will start it off with what I have heard/read, but with no first hand experience yet.

Hard starting issue...........Fuel pump/cold start techniques
Transmission shifting/neutral.........Chain tension or break in time
Soft brake feel.........air in lines/bleed
Oil leaks...........loose oil filter
Mysterious high idle...........loose idle control screw

Nothing catastrophic yet.:smile2:

There's a bunch of threads already on this forum dealing with such issues?
Wasn't trying to deal with the issues, just a list of what's going wrong, in one thread for reference.

I think another similar thread was started, can't find it yet. It's a good idea and should be pinned at the top of a forum section somehow for visibility. Would be nice to have direct links to each thread discussing the specific issues. What sucks is that we would not be able to maintain the list as after a while you can't edit your own posts :( Maybe I can try to work something with the admins...

I was thinking about this earlier.
Most issues are on the forum but there is no ‘oversight’ on one page.
I would be a good idea to have one thread that sums up the issues we have (had)
No discussion on that post but behind every issue the link to the thread for discussions etc.
For those who need more information, click on the link to the thread and ......find out more on an issue you have.

I don’t know if and who can do that.
I’m not a computer nerd !!!!!!!!!

It really is starting to frustrate me, the fact that we only have 10 minutes to do all the editing. Heck, there have been times where I was editing a post and waiting for some pictures to upload (notoriously slow internet here) and it wouldn't let me finalize my edit even if I was in the advanced edit page. Seems out of place, really.

That would be great.
Other forums do it, and hopefully it can be done here.
Easy for quick references and fixes.

I read on the forum that the bmw dealer slaughter another new bmw for the parts to saticfy the customers
Although a rare situation, I know first hand of it being done to satisfy
irate customers who don't have the time or patience to wait.
