Second water pump in 12000 km
« on: November 02, 2018, 06:37:36 AM »
As the title suggest, my bike has just munched its second water pump in 12000 km.

The first one had the bike leaking oil through the bottom of the pump, and now it is coolant....

I love the bike too much to be angry.... :018:

Out by 1 month!

BMW will do the right thing, I'm sure...

Known issue, history of identical failure...push hard and I'm sure it will be covered

My first one went out at 2500 miles and 3 months. Spitting oil onto CAT, with just a tiny spot of coolant. Haven't gotten to put miles on since I picked it up, but it was a little damp with oil from the same black plug when I got home. We'll see...

I had a water pump replaced on my 2015 S1000r within1500 miles, new part was good up to 19000 and still is I assume, as I part ex'd it at that mileage for the XR.
