Warranty Usage Poll

I've had 5 warranty issues in the 16 months I've owned my used 2006 LT. I know the previous owner had at least 1. That got me thinking about others' experiences, so I put this poll together.

When your K1200LT was under its original warranty, how many times was it in for a service/repair covered under that warranty?

This is just for my own edification.

Re: Warranty Usage Poll

I can't say about the previous owner, but I had my LT in for a radio replacement and rear rotor replacement (if you have not had yours done yet, now is a good time to get it done).

My dealer (SD BMW) is a joy to work with and when I have the opportunity I will buy my next motorcycle from them as well. Truthfully, I wish all the BMW dealers out there were as good and customer orientated.

PS: I didn't mention that when I had my Smartire sensors installed and they found a bubble on the ME880 up front and replaced it under the manufacturer (Metzler) warrenty.

Re: Warranty Usage Poll

Thirteen BMW motorcycles over the last ten years, and one warranty claim due to failure. There were some campaign related claims, but those were preventative. Among those bikes were three LTs without a failure among them. Two of the LTs were out of warranty when I traded them.

I added a poll choice for no warranty issues. Without that as a choice the poll would have less real value.

Just two issues under warranty and one that probably would have been if I'd pressed the point, but I decided to fix it better myself.

Rear brake rotor replaced to quiet the squeal.
Replacement of one of the chrome trim pieces in the air exhaust as it delaminated.

The one I fixed myself was the failure of the screw that holds the trunk tether. It is plastic and the threads stripped (either from vibration or overtightening at the factory) and I found it laying in the bottom of my trunk one day.

Re: Warranty Usage Poll

By the time I had 32k miles on my 05 I had the dealer replace the final drive seal that was leaking, albeit slowly, and the power center stand.
In light of that I decided to buy the Pinnacle protection plan for an additional 4 years. Thank you Ted from A&S!
