there is some good news!

I'm back on "BMW standby". We still have not found the correct transmission for my bike. I'm going to have to wait it out, until BMW ships stock number 23007650007 and most likely that will not happen until late this month.

The one transmission that was found, arrived damaged.

The only other transmissions in the United States are for the newer bikes.

My buddy David Shealey, found and showed me a transmission stock number that does not show up on any dealer screens. (?) The three different BMW dealers that I personally walked through the http://www.realoem.com/bmw/ site were amazed when we got to: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=0555&mospid=47964&btnr=23_0730&hg=23&fg=05
THEN typed part # 23007677941 11/2000 up to 01/04 on their BMW system, only to find that part, in the BMW system, it did not exist.

I did get a bit of good news yesterday: BMW changed their warranty policy in 2005 so that now when you have a BMW dealer install a new component like my engine AND tranny THEY ARE guaranteed for 24 months (NO mileage limitation). I am one happy camper with that. :cool:

Sorry that you're still waiting on BMW, but I'm sure Ali will come back better than new.

Two years unlimited miles, huh? Gee, how many miles could you possibly put on Ali in two years? ;)

Ken, did you really ask that question of Coni????

I guess you're newer on the forum than I thought!

I took Ken's question as kind of a challenge

My mileage contest results will be appalling *this year*; I can tell you that. :eek:

For some reason ...I pulled up the German BMW website and the new bikes are shown there. They are a little different. :D

I was amazed today when my husband told me I should go pick up a transmission in Germany. I think PMS (YES, I meant Parked Motorcycle Syndrome) has hit a few months early here. ;)

That may not be a bad idea.
Or what about finding one at a dealer in Europe or else where and just having it shipped. (I know fat chance of one sitting on a shelf somewhere , but ya never know.)

Um, did Graham mean one that was attached to a new LT? (Sorry, Ali.) You could do the 1,000 Km break in on local roads, then spend some quality time in the Alps or on the Autobahn, then send it home. :) It'd probably still get done earlier than your current path . . .

Oh believe me, I sent a message to every single e-mail address that I could find on the web Those that are a dealer and those that had any hope of having a transmission. Then I had Sierra BMW send out a Retail Net *APB* :) for stock number 23007650007.

Tuesday I might get a good surprise.

It is waiting yet another 2 weeks that will be tough. A friend called last night and I may go get his Goldwing in Arizona. The poor guy got double pneumonia while on a ride.

I am just hoping that I don't have to have my bike hauled home, due to snow in the passes.

I am holding out hope but I have a sick feeling that I will see the 2006 K1200LT before I get to see Ali again.

Dear Coni , just rolled over 105.000 miles on my 99LT and have a very small bit of oil coming from the trans case. Did you have any warning on Ms Black or did your trannee go with the motor...

Taz,

I had just picked up the Bike in Las Vegas and was breaking in the new engine on the road to Reno.

As I reached Sparks, NV my clutch started to slip. I knew I had the first appointment at Sierra BMW in the morning. I made that appointment long before so that they could do the break-in service. I rolled into Sierra and they found a leak at the transmission. :(

What a break-in service it has turned into. My bike is still off the road and waiting for BMW Germany to send me a transmission that will fit my '01 bike.

Hope to hear by November. :eek:

Thanks Coni , my dollar problems are not as big as yours but Ride West wants about 2 grand to fix the trans leak and 700 bucks more for a small leak on the front of the motor.
With the bike only worth 7 to 9 thou it makes my jaw tight after you do all that BMW wants for the service on the bike. My wallet is never at rest with this beast but it is fun to ride...

Taz-

The sad news is, if you had the extended warranty policy, that would have paid for it.

I am really sorry to hear about your spendy leaks.
