My bike was delivered on time and the clutch / quick shifter issues have been sorted. This isn't to say that I am happy, far from it. I am awaiting their official response before I open a massive can of worms and sh1t starts to fly as I believe they have tried to pull a fast one.

I am getting fed up of hearing the phrase "goodwill gesture" from the dealer. When something is just over a year old and still has 11 months warranty left items that are defective are replaced under warranty not goodwill. They or BMW are doing me no favours by sticking to the terms and conditions of the warranty and doing what they are legally bound to do. Goodwill is replacing parts after the warranty has run out.

I still remember my brothers advice when dealing with any sales outlet. Whether it be Bike, Car, Kitchen, ect ect. Never never be the nice guy always go in guns blazing, only then will they take any notice. Being mister nice guy only gives them the incentive to take the piss. In your position I would send them a very detailed list of their failings and copy in BMW head office.  :211:
An angry customer who threatens to take it further will give them the incentive to make you a happy customer........And if you are not satisfied then go elsewhere........................................... :041:

we found that the oil level was too high. This was causing pressure to the clutch plates.

Removing oil seemed to have fixed it.

I am keeping an eye the clutch changing...
I have the same problem. I commute into London and it's becoming a bit of a nightmare. Sometimes I have to switch to engine off so I can put it in neutral. Vines said that they didn't experience any issues. Next week I will take it to Bahnstormer. Has anyone find the solution?

Hi is this an issue with finding neutral ? . If so try the clutch adjustment at the lever. Do not adjust it to the bmw spec, but adjust it right up so you only have a very small movement in the lever ( under 5mm ). The reason for this is when the bike heats up the play in the cable expands and when you pull in the clutch it does not fully engage the clutch. Hence hard to get into neutral................

Thank you very much
