    Friend of mine did - bike went back twice at which point he rejected it.

    Seems to be a problem with the oil-pump/sump interface and is not uncommon.

    If you're the original owner, BMW should send you a recall notice if your bike VIN is affected. Sometimes it might only be a small amount/range of VIN's or build dates affected.

    Collected the bike today and asked why the sump had been changed, I was informed BMW was changing them as it was sub standard quality 🤔

    There was a guy on here that got a hole in his sump a couple months ago, they replaced it for the new part for him too if i recall correctly. I'd just take the free stuff and roll with it.

    There may be others, but I reported a holed sump on the forum, it was replaced (not under warranty).
    I have the offending item in my grubby paws, the front of the sump is in the direct firing line of the front wheel. Even with an extended front mudguard, fitted from new. The sump was peppered with small dents from "normal" road debris. It had a pin hole punched through from a small dent, BMW said it was a "user issue, not a manufacture fault" this may be true as the casting quality wasn't at fault. But I'd only done about 8k miles on normal UK roads, I would suggest that this is a design fault. Having an unprotected, thin cast aluminium sump in the firing line of road debris, that fails after only 8k is not what I would expect from any new bike.
    When I collected my repaired bike, the service guy mentioned in passing, that they had another Gen 2 in for repair with a hole in the sump!

    Just looked at my Gen2. It has a U shaped metal oil line in front of that sump section. Shoud be easy to clamp a bit of perforated metal on that, maybe dual layer to get some air flow but no  stones.

    Done just that after noticing mine peppered with stone chips after just 1k miles. I used metal cable ties to fasten an aluminium shield to the oil pipe thereby offering some protection to the front of the sump. No reason to use perforated as no cooling needed there. Will try to get my camera underneath for some photos if anyone’s interested.

    Given the cost of a sump puncture and the potential loss of a holiday I just added some protection for next week's holiday. Simply a roll of steel wool I folded up in multipe layers, squeezed it hard between two plastic cards, and pushed it between the oil pipe and the front of the sump, and withdrew the cards. Seems stuck pretty good as it expands a bit like a spunge. Apparently steel wool is used in high heat insulation, so not worried about any additional heat transfer from the exhaust pipes.
    Still thinking about a nicer solution allowing more air flow..
