I bought my LT last September. It was a new 2009 model and it is my first BMW. I really like it and can't wait to take some long distant trips this year. But after hearing so much about FD failure I'm wondering if I made the right choice. I was looking at a 2010 GW and a 2010 Concours 14. Too many GW's out there for my taste and I didn't care for the riding position on the Concours. The ride and handling of the LT is what sold me. Most of the bikes I've read about with FD failure are older models. Is there still a problem with FD failure on the 2009? Did BMW solve this problem? Do I need to look into drilling weep holes? Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening? I really like the big girl (top heavy and all) and would like to know if I should be concerned.
