As Many Other bmw Owners Have Experienced, I Experienced A Failure Of The Final Drive (rear End). I Ended A Short Trip And Became Aware Of High Heat Coming From The Rear Axle. I Trailered It To The Dealership Where I Was Informed It Was A Final Drive Failure, Worn Bearings And A Wobbly Rear Wheel. They Informed Me It Was A Dry Park Requiring No Mx On My Part And Could Offer No Explanation For Its Premature Failure. Upon My Web Research, The “dreaded Final Drive Failure” Immediately Pops Up On Many Sites And One Suggested I File A Complaint Here. *tr

2009 BMW R 1200 RT Structure Motorcycle Kickstand, Center Stand problems & defects.

BMW R 1200 RT Structure Motorcycle Kickstand, Center Stand problems : 1.

Side Stand Interlock Switch Failure On A 2009 bmw R1200rt Motorcycle. The Switch Is Designed To Prevent The Motorcycle From Being Driven With The Side Stand In The Down Position. The Switch On My Machine Failed With The Side Stand In The Up Position And The Motorcycle Being Driven Down The Road At Approximately 40 Mph. When The Switch Failed The Motor Stopped Running, Which Caused The Rear Wheel To Skid. I Was Able To Pull In The Clutch To Get Out Of The Rear Wheel Skid And Steer The Machine Off The Road. I Was Able To By-pass The Interlock Switch In Order To Start The Machine And Ride It Home. The Only Repair Would Be The Replacement Of The Switch. The Problem I Have Is That Once The Machine Is In Gear And Moving Down The Road The Failure Of This Switch Should Not Cause The Motor Of The Motorcycle To Stop Unexpectedly. The Loss Of Engine Power Could Lead To Injury Or Death. If The Switch Fails While The Machine Is Being Driven Down The Road It Needs To Alert The Rider Of A Fault But Not Stop The Motor. If This Had Happened To Me At 60 Mph I Might Not Have Been Able To File This Report. *tr

I Am Writing In Response To Your Investigation Concerning bmw Motorcycle Final Drive Failures And Wish Provide Supporting Information. I Have A 2008 bmw R1200rt (vin [xxx]) In Which The Final Drive Developed Significant Roughness In The Rear Wheel Rotation And Pronounced Rumbling Noise At Highway Speeds At About 22,000 Miles (early 2011). I Continued To Operate The Motorcycle Until 23, 400 Miles At Which Point I Contacted bmw Usa And My Local Dealer (august 2011). As My Motorcycle Was A Few Months Out Of Warranty, Neither Organization Was Particularly Helpful. It Should Be Noted The Final Drive Lubrication Was Changed At 12,000 And 18,000 Miles Service Intervals. No Metal Shavings Noted When The Oil Was Drained. At No Time Was Final Drive Oil Leakage Evident. Being A Mechanically Capable Individual, I Elected To Diagnose And Repair The Final Drive Myself. I Dismantled The Final Drive And Inspected The Crown Wheel Bearing. I Discovered Significant Roughness In The Bearings Rotation. Further, I Cut The Bearing Apart To Determine The Cause Of The Roughness. The Inside Of The Bearing Still Contained Grease And There Was No Evidence Of Final Drive Oil Leakage Into The Bearing Itself. After Cleaning Away The Grease, I Examined The Bearings Races And Ball Bearings. I Noted Significant Pitting And Metal Galling On The Balls And Bearing Races. I Replaced The Failed Bearing With A New Bearing And Replaced The Seals. Total Part Cost Was Approximately $200. I Fabricated The Necessary Special Tools To Perform The Repair. I Retained The Failed Bearing Should You Be Interested In Examining It. Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6).*tr

Riding On The Interstate With Traffic, The Fuel Gauge Began Acting Erratically, Showing More Fuel, Then Less Fuel For A Few Miles Before The Motorcycle Ran Out Of Fuel, Almost Causing A Crash As The Engine Quit. Was Able To Change Lanes And Get To The Shoulder Without A Crash. I Feel This Is A Significant Safety Issue. If The Fuel Gauge (which Is Fed Data From A Faulty Fuel Strip) Reads More Fuel Than The Vehicle Actually Has, If The Engine Runs Out Of Fuel And Stops, This Could Be Very Dangerous In Places With High Traffic Counts And Speed. *tr

After Starting The Motorcyle And Allowing For A Brief Period Of Warming Up, I Headed To The Gas Station To Fuel Up In Preparation For A Long Ride The Next Day. As A Force Of Habit I Checked My Range And Odometer Readings And Found The Range Was Noticeably Lower Than It Should Be Displaying For The Miles Used On The Tank. As I Rode The Couple Of Miles To The Gas Station The Range Continued To Drop Precipitously, 5-20 Miles At A Time Every Few Seconds Until It Reached Zero And Displayed “—” For A Range To Empty After Riding Just Over One Mile. After Filling The Tank Fully, The Gauge Did Not Reset Or Change In Any Way. I Took The Motorcycle To The Dealer And They Diagnosed The Problem As A Fuel Strip, Aka Fuel Level Sensor, Gone Bad. I Am Now Awaiting The Part To Arrive So My 3rd Fuel Strip Replacement Can Go Ahead. (my Second Occurred In February 2012, The Third In August 2013.) My Motorcycle Has Just 24,000 Miles And Is Less Than 5 Years Old (by 3 Months). I Find It Almost Unfathomable That Such An Essential Part As The Fuel Gauge Can Cease To Function For No Apparent Reason, With No Warning On A Modern Vehicle. Add In The Denials From The Manufacturer That A Problem Even Exists And It Gets Totally Maddening.

bmw Model R1200rt Years 2005 – 2013 May Be Subject To Throttle Cable Assembly Failure. The Throttle Body System On The 2009 Year Model Is Assembled By Bing Power In Nuremberg, Germany And Utilized By bmw In Motorcycles With The 1170 Cc Boxer Motor. (bing Is A Longstanding Company Which In General Manufactures First-rate Products.)the Primary Throttle Cable Extends From The Handle Bar To A Splitter From Which Two Separate Throttle Cables Extend To Left And Right Hand Throttle Bodies Which House The Fuel Injection System. Those Two Cables Are Routed Over And Anchored To A Cable Pulley Made Of Molded Plastic. This Entire Assembly Is Attached To The Throttle Body. If Or When The Plastic Fails, There Is No Throttle And The Engine Goes To Idle, Thus Creating An Extreme Safety Hazard If One Is Driving In Traffic And Unable To Maintain Speed Or Accelerate. In This Circumstance The Rider Could Be Forthrightly In Harm’s Way And Endangered. This Should Be An Urgent Recall Issue For Replacement Of The Plastic Part With A Solid Cable Pulley Which Will Not Break. Previous Models Used Metal Cable Pulleys Which Did Not Fail. (see This Blog For Discussion Posted By Another Rider, Among Many, With The Same Failure Issue: Http://www.asvrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=967780&page=3 ) bmw Does Not Make The Plastic Part Available For Replacement. Thus, A Plastic Part Costing But A Few Dollars Results In The Rider Having To Replace Both The Left And Right Complete Throttle Body Assemblies At A Cost Of More Than $1,000. The Under-designed Plastic Cable Pulley Is Nothing Less Than A Hazard And Creates A Risk To One’s Life. A Police Motorcycle Cop Riding His Patrol R1200rt Looked At The Failed Part I Showed Him And His First Words Were, “that Could Get You Killed.” I Have Made Bing And bmw Of North America Aware Of My Experience Via Email But I Continue To Wait For Their Reply.
