I hate to burst your bubble, but i am sure you where warned or at least read enough articles on using the proper engine lubricants in your machine, and now unfortunately you are here on the forum asking why did this happen, well revert to your thread header, OIL, many argue it does not make a difference, many say it does, i guess you will not know because you chose the wrong stuff, or maybe you do know because you chose the wrong stuff, either way you used poor judgement and maybe saved 100.00 dollars in oil purchased from your local Wally World versus going to the dealer or ordering online, and you may want sympathy or answers to a ongoing problem. I feel you do not have room to argue your point of it was BAD BMW parts due in part because you used lubricants not intended for use in a motorcycle, I feel for you becasue you did have a major problem with your Machine, but for this is hard to swallow, but a excellent tool for EVERYONE on this board to learn from what you do not want to happen to you by taking decision making away from the Engineer's that designed the bike to run a SPECIFIC type of lubricant for your machine. Good luck Boss, I hope your new parts run on longer than these did.
