    Gearbox issues

    Hi, I've just joined as I'm looking for anyone who has had or heard of anyone having major gearbox failure.
    I'm from UK and currently in UK my bike is currently in split  croatia with a gearbox problem. They think its a bearing race failure but haven't had chance to have a good look yet. Its a 2018, 9k miles and I don't have extended warranty. Im probably going to have to consult BNW to see if they will help with costs, parts/labour or both. If this is a common problem then I may have a bit of a chance but if not common then in theory I should have more of a chance of getting something out if them. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Cheers

    Haven't heard of this before, but some more info particularly on symptoms would be helpful, i doubt you'll get anything out of BMW since you're past warranty.

    It went very badly quickly, I had a bit too much free play in clutch lever/cable so adjusted it but it only made a little bit of difference and not for long. Then I had trouble getting any gear with clutch or using shifter/blipper. At one point the only way I could stop was stall/turn engine off.
    Shortly after this my gearbox sounded like a box of spanners

    First tip,always join a forum when you don’t need help always comes across better   :002:

    How come you are here and the bike is in split, or is that no Euro cover.

    Not a snowballs chance in hell of help from BMW.

    Have a K1200r Sport that lunched it’s gearbox, which I’m not sure yours has without stripping the bike and found the best solution was a donor engine, but it was a later motor and some parts didn’t fit but still a cheaper solution than buying new parts and you may well find the same, not the problem with fit because I think 15/19 or maybe a tad later are all the same.

    Jesus Winger give the poor guy a break !!!

    Are you sure its not a clutch problem rather than a GB problem. Are you saying that when you pull in the clutch the bike was still driving forward and not disengaging power? If so that does not sound like a GB problem to me, more clutch.

    The clutch was stripped and nothing wrong with it, he was turning the gear box and it wound round to the right 23 times before locking up, then 23 turns to the left and it locked thats why he thinks a bearing race in gear box is damaged, only thing is it might have dsmaged some gearing with the metal shards.

    I joined the forum to see if anyone else has had the same problem / issues as the forums are where people post problems aswell as the good stuff.
    My bike is in split at a BMW dealer where my euro cover would have taken it if I had broken down.
    I'm in UK as I'm not staying in split for possibly 2 months before its repaired.
    It might (hopefully) not be as bad as I think but either way it needs fixing and either selling in split or ill go back and collect it.

    So if you spin the back wheel in neutral with the clutch disassembled it locks up, after a certain number of turns ?

    Does it do the same in every gear?

    He didn't spin the back wheel it was the gearing he was spinning just above your right foot.

    Spinning the input shaft to the gearbox ? Was doing it with the clutch cover off and clutch removed ?
