$2,000 Repair

Many of you have read my previous thread and have posted many replies. I picked up my LT today, here's the deal. Cross Country BMW in Metuchen, NJ forwarded all of my maintenance records to BMW NA, since the bike was purchased from that dealer and maintained according to BMW's mx schedule, BMW supplied all the parts at no cost. The dealer replaced the clutch, clutch slave cylinder, seals and FD bearings, along with all kinds of other seals and rings. The parts were about $950 total, cut my total bill in half. I was so surprised, they certainly didn't have to go to such lengths. Thanks for everyones threads. Happy riding.

Re: $2,000 Repair

That's great to hear. Having your bike dealer serviced sure paid off. The bike was out of warranty right?

The bike was out of warranty by over two years.

Wow! It sure is nice to hear a great story like that! Good for BMW to get a little good press and a great dealer for helping out!!
