My name is Bill and a new 07 GT owner. Bought it at Honda of Hollywood, got a decent deal. Dig the bike, but like most everyone else, the seat is horrible. Kind of dissapointed with the windscreen also (very distorted). I kind of thought that paying a premium meant getting premium equipment.
Love riding in the mountains and even though she's heavy she's smooooothh.
I'm also new to the site and have been reading quite a bit on some of the problems with the bike.
So, I take the bike in for the 600 mile service in Hollywood but they don't change the oil in the final drive. I told the service manager that BMW recomends changing the oil and he tells me it's a sealed unit and doesn't have to be changed! He punches the vin number through the computer and says, "Nope, not needed." Is this right? I believe I read several places where the oil should be changed at this service.
I've got 1200 miles on her now and am thinking of using a different dealership for the service. Any suggestions?
Oh yeah, she bucks at low throttle openings too when warm.
