Electrical System Bmw 2014
|Model||R 1200 Gs|
During Acceleration Up A Steep Mountain Grade With No Shoulders And Traffic Behind, The Connection Of The electrical Cable To The Throttle Twist Grip Unseated Enough To Break electrical Connection. This Caused The Motorcycle To Decelerate To About 5 Mph And Lose All Throttle Control. With The Traffic Behind And No Place To Safely Pull Over I Felt I Was At A Great Safety Risk As Cars And Trucks Attempted To Go Around Me. This Is The Third Time This Has Happened, Though Not In Such Harrowing Circumstances. The Second Time This Happened, Last Year, I Used Zip-ties To Tighten The Connector Body To Its Mate. When Informed Of The Incident, The Local bmw Shop (and I) Believed This Had Remedied The Problem. Obviously This Was Not The Case. I Will Be Contacting The Local bmw Shop To See If They Will Replace The Connecting Parts With Ones That Have An Obvious Detent Or Latch To Prevent This From Happening Again.
