Cush drive
« on: November 06, 2016, 03:05:37 PM »
Had the bike in for it's 6000 mile service yesterday. All as it should except for the cush drive rubbers and sprocket bearing which will need replacing under warranty along with rear wheel bearings. Anyone else with this issue.

Do you ride in wet weather often ?

Not generally. Few wet rides. Bought the bike with just over 4000 miles on it in Sept this year. It is now on 6200 mile, bought from BMW direct. Still, it will be repaired under warranty but thought it a bit unusual for cush drive to wear at this mileage.

When I was looking at the s1000 range before making a decision to buy back in May/June this year I had a chat with a chap with a S1000R who had also had to have the cush drive on his bike replaced at 6000 mile service, so maybe its not unknown.

Had to replace them on my RR and they told me it wasn't a warranty item. The bearing would have been though, but mine was ok.
