Question BMW NA Coverage on Rear Drive Failures


I am currently talking to my dealer about BMWNA covering the costs of repairing my rear drive failure on my GT with just under 27,000 miles. One of the things my dealer is telling me is that BMWNA has NEVER covered all of the cost of replacing a rear drive when the bike is more than a year out of warranty. There are plenty of threads here that indicate that BMW stood behind their product and did the right thing (IMHO) and 'good-willed' the repair, but I cannot find any that indicate how long the bike was out of warranty. Has anyone here ever had BMW pay for the rear drive repair with a bike more than one year out of warranty?

Thanks in advance for any info. you can provide (model, year, how far out of warranty, dealership, etc.).
