Engine rattle at low rpm


I have a problem with my first BMW k1200s 2005 (85000 KM). The engine starts rattling during at 2500 - 2000 rpm. This is most noticable on a slightly declined road when I release the throttle. This happens in all of the gears. There is no noise when the bike is idle. The bike doesn't have a built-in chain tensioner.

Any suggestions?

Get The Cam Chain Tensioner before it Grenades on you!

I am no mechanic but sounds very much like you got a early warning which some people never get leading to a very expen$ive failure.

Its a recall or easy to do it yourself..

Don't wait.
