07 KGT Transmission Question
I have a 07 KGT with the "2nd gear temporary loss of power" problem that has been discussed in the forum previously. Even though I had the problem reported to BMW before my warranty ended last year, it appears that the transmission will not be replaced under factory warranty. (Being stonewalled repeatedly) It is still hard to believe that a bike this expensive has a manufacturing defect that isn't being covered by the company?
My question is that when I go to replace the transmission I want to make sure that I'm not buying another faulty 2006 - 2008 trans. for $3300.00. As I understand it, the problem was rectified in the 2009 - KGTs. Has anyone had a 2009 trans installed to replace a faulty 06 - 08 ?
As much as it is a pain to my wallet I have to get this problem solved before the better riding weather arrives.
Any wisdom would be appreciated.
