Major warranty work

anyone out there have any idea how long it takes for BMW to replace tranny and clutch on a GTL? they have already said it was bad and they would fix it. It has been two weeks and it has not even shipped from Germany yet. This really sucks the bike had 4500 miles on it when it took a dump.

No way to know for sure, but I would figure 6 weeks give or take a week.

I would hope that transmission failures are rare enough not to need that many in stock, but keeping one on hand would seem prudent.

Re: Major warranty work

These unfortunate problems with all new model releases take several years to work out. That is why I would never buy a new model until three or four years go by. Good luck with getting your ride fixed.
