Is my FD getting ready to die?
I purchased a 06' GT recently with only 6,800 miles. I just got it back from the shop for the centerstand, EWS ring, and oil tank recalls. I also had to have a sensor replaced in the fuel tank. Since I am not the orignal owner and it has been serviced at multiple dealerships across the eastern coast, the local dealership could not tell me if the oil had been changed in the FD. I also asked if the recommeded maintenance schedule for the FD had been changed by BMW. They did not know.
Well last night after my Wife and rode on it for about 45 minutes at 70 mph, we heard a clicking sound coming from the FD upon making slow right turns. The bike only has 7,500 miles on it. Still under BMW warranty until 5/6/2009.
I'm new to the BMW forums and I have read a lot about FD failures...is it happening to me? Is BMW offering extended warranties on the FD's?
