I had my bushings replaced (no. 11) and now my handlebars rock back and forth loosely. They said the recall was for #11 only, NOT #14.

Anyone had this looseness? I need to take it back again....

Yeah just like that video. Well I took the bars off and made sure it was all assembled properly. Everything was in the right order and tight, so I put it back together and the wiggle is gone. It's squishy, but no more wiggle. I have a theory that as you ride it 'settles' and the soft rubber gets squished out of round. Time will tell if it gets loose again, if so it's back to the dealer.

On my 2016 they just replaced #14. My bars do move a little back and forth but not near as much as shown in that video! Def. would take that back to dealer.

Hey guys, just thought I'd share some info after talking with multiple BMW dealers and doing plenty of research.

I had my bike in for the retrofit and they replaced only #11 (lower) rubbers. I asked and they said the official BMW bulletin only addressed the lower bushings and would not change the uppers. I spoke to another dealership and they confirmed this, but the second dealership chooses to replace both #14 (upper) and lower because #14 has also been updated as of 4/1/2016. I was a little concerned because I still found some wiggle in my handlebar attachment and hoped the newer #14 would fix the issue.

On my 2016 XR with build date 11/15 I found the OLD style uppers (part numbers 31428554473 and 31428554474). So, I purchased NEW version uppers (part numbers 31428569759 and 31428569760). They are not what I expected. They are the same exact hard "rubber" as the originals. In fact I tried very hard to find a difference between the old and new! Whereas the old and new #11 is a significant difference in softness, the old and new #14 is nearly identical...

The one difference I found is that it appears the old upper has a slight taper to it ranging from 0.194" to 0.175", and the new upper is flatter and slightly thicker measuring 0.198 across the entire flat section. The result? A slightly tighter fit, and no more wiggle in the handlebars.

So, I hope they hold up and the wiggle stays away. They are not the soft cushy upgrade I imagined, so I don't expect any difference in vibration. What I can say, is that #11 is what you want to focus on if you are after less vibes, but you should install the new #14 as well if you have some slop.

Hope that helps.

Hi All
For anyone in NZ I can confirm I've just had my 2015XR retro fit done free of charge. I emailed BMW NZ asking if they were aware and if a similar service was being offered in NZ re the retro fit of the new bushings. Very helpful and although stressed it wasn't a technical recall or something they are widely offering they said "I should expect this to done for free". Great! I took it down to Cyclespot who did the inspection, confirmed BMW happy to pay for parts and labour, and put the parts on. I have to say it was all fuss free and quick.
Thankyou BMW NZ and Cyclespot :047: :047: :062:

Part numbers
33306760587 Nut you need 2 of these
31428388607 Rubber bar Mount you need 2 of these

Did a little basic how to over on the GS web site that ill happily copy and paste if anyone needs it
Wonderful Post - I will do this, if the end bars weight of 270gr, still not good for my taste.

regards
