A little suprised this hasn't popped up here yet, but I was just wondering if anyone's had to deal with this problem with the K12R? Mine started making noise a little after 600+ miles and it got progressively worse. Comes on at the tail end of braking just before coming to a full stop. Brought it in recently to the local BMW service centre and after going through the troubleshooting procedures and trying various 'fixes' which didn't work, they eventually fitted on the new mounts with rubber washers as recommended on the service memo that I've attached for reference (the whole process took the long route as the K12R is not listed on this service memo). Finally took my bike home yesterday and everything seemed fine till I got caught in really bad stop & go traffic on the way home, and the problem reared its ugly head again. Definitely not as bad as before but noticeable/audible short squawk. Heat (friction or otherwise) may be a factor as the problem seems to lessen or even disappear with clear roads and not so heavy use of the brakes - it was fine coming in to work this morning with clear roads and cool weather. Any thoughts? Wonder what it's going to take to fix this permanently...
