2015 BMW K1300S Motorsport Edition
For the last few weeks myself and a few other K owners on another forum have been guiding a millennial (24 years old) through fixing his screw up when he decided to do an oil change and coolant flush on his K bike. He says he's been working for Toyota as a mechanic for the last 3 1/2 years.(He had joined the forum 2 weeks ago and was sending out PM's to us seasoned BMW mechanics asking questions which as usual we are always happy to help people. Messages coming in at 12:00 AM 2:00 AM were the norm. And if he didn't get a response right away he would send PM's again say "hello hello are you there"? Well finally Wednesday we got him all sorted out and his bike is not overheating anymore since he finally got the cooling system under a vacuum sorce and was able to get all the bubbles out of the water. So a few days go by and one of the other guys who was helping him added to his tread saying "hey glad you got it all sorted out and you know a thank you would have been nice". So he posts back "why should I thank you guys, I did all the work" well needless to say he is your typical "I'm an entitled millennial and I want I want I want type of mentality so he got into it with a couple of the other members and now he's banned and the tread has been removed. So this morning one of the members contacted me to let me know that he was contacted through Facebook from the millennial on Thursday stating that he was doing the spline lube service on the drive shaft and now the drive shaft won't go back in. He stated to him that he was going on a 200 mile ride yesterday and he doesn't know when the spline was last lubed so he decided to do it but since it won't go back in can he walk him through getting it back in. Well Needless to say the BMW mechanic told him to go pound sand.This morning the BMW mechanic contacts me laughing because the millennial who tried to do it himself winded it up binding the drive shaft and blew up the differential on the ride. He is now threatening to sue the BMW mechanic for not giving him the advice that he requested.....requested!!! LMAO!!! This is the type of mentality thinking of this little shit. And I must say this is not all millennials way of thinking. Many of my friends kids are very respectful and self supporting. It just amazes me on how self-centered this asswipe is.
