faild brake servos
on two occasions I have had brake servos failing on my k1200lt,it is an intermitant fault,it first happend four weeks ago two bmw dealers looked at the bike and said there was no fault so did not do any repair.I have had the bike back two and a half weeks and the problem has reoccured so there is definately a potentialy a serious problem.When this happens all is fine as I ride the bike them the red warning triangle and the brake failure warning start to flash followed by the servos stopping working,resulting in a drastic loss of brake power.If you turn off the ignition and leave a couple of mins and switch back on the brake system resets and is fine for a few miles,then reoccurs,I have done about 500 miles between the two events.One bmw dealer has refused to look at the bike,and is now at another bmw dealer,the bike is under a bmw warranty.I contacted bmw customer services and was told they cannot help,if the dealer cannot find the fault.
Has this happend to anybody else,meaning the brake servo problem and did you get it resolved.The person at bmw customer services said I was gettig over dramatic stating that a brake failure could result in serious injury or even death.
