Power Train Bmw 2014
Santa Clara, CA
|Model||K 1600 Gtl|
1. The Motorcycles Pulls To The Left. Constant Correction Is Stressful On Highways And Taxes One’s Muscles. 2. Engine Has A Ticking Noise (valve Chattering) At 3000-3500 Rpm Band (first Noticed At 8000 Miles) And Dealer/manufacturer Is Unable To Do Anything About It. There Are Lots Of K1600 On The Road With This Issue And bmw Has No Resolution For This. 3. Shifting To Neutral – First Observed At Approx 16000 Miles (immediately After Third Service) – The Motorcycle Does Not Slot Into 2nd And Neutral Gears With Precision. First Gear Has A Loud Clunk Sound On Engaging And Sometimes Clutch Do Not Disengage Fully Enough Though I Would Depress The Lever Fully. At Times Gear Change Requests Are Aborted As The Gear Change Enters Limbo State. The Gearbox And Clutch Do Not Work In Tandem For Smooth Upshifts. At Stop-n-go Traffic Finding Neutral By Rocking Gear Lever Is A Pain. I Have To Constantly Lot At Gear Indicator To Confirm Is Upshift Was Executed From 1st To 2nd (or Is It In A Limbo – Not Even Neutral). During This Situation There Is Loud Mechanical Grinding Noise When I Would Want To Slot To Second Gear And Couple Of Attempts To Upshift Go In Vain. Been Riding For Years And I Know All Timing Techniques But A Missed Upshift Puts Me At Risk.
