Re: LT Shift Linkage
Before I sold my 02, it had about 50K trouble free miles and I only serviced the shifter. I did carry a steel replacement, along with a few other assorted parts, but I never used them.
I tended to go with the train of thought that said that the shifter was a link in the transmission and that if there was a problem, it would be better for it to break there, then at a more expensive part.
I would keep spare parts, keep the original shifter well cleaned and lubed, and then not worry about it.
For the most part, BMW engineers are pretty good, and as you begin to understand their mindset, to me, the bike makes more sense.
