Re: CLC Rear Disc Brake Issue
CLC uses the same rear disc as the LT. There is a TSB out now about the disc and BMW has a new, updated version of the disc with five rivet points. Reports on the new version are very positive eliminated brake squeal as well as cowbell clunk. The TSB states the dealers should replace any rear disc under warranty if/when the customer makes a noise complaint. I have also been advised they will offer AWA (after warranty assistance) to those bikes out of warranty but with the same customer complaint. What or how much is still to be determined on a case by case basis. I have requested AWA on my 02 LT but the discs have been back-ordered due to heavy demand. Last I heard is they were recently restocked at the US warehouse depot and I hoping to get a call very shortly as I was on the waiting list. The list price is $440 which includes the ABS ring thus my strong interest in BMW picking up at least half the tab.
