Re: Rumble when load put through at idle???
My '05 does it as well. At first it worried me.....to the point I went to a couple different dealers who were happy to start up new LT's and demo bikes to show that they all did the same thing. One of the dealers brought out their Master BMW Tech with 30 years experience who gave me a very solid and plausible.....but totally forgettable.....technical explanation.
The long and the short of it was that it's a 'normal' LT thing and would not cause any problems and that I could look forward to many thousands of miles of use with no worries.
I took him at his word 13K miles ago and so far he has been right.
