I also wonder if WW will replace the pads since they are now contaminated with diff lube.
You would hope so!
Good to hear you had a positive experience. What kind of work did Gulf Coast do for you?I had a good service experience at Gulf Coast BMW/British USA. In and out in one day, people were friendly, helpful, and not brain dead lol. I’m going to be taking my R9T back there but will keep Wild West in mind, good to know.
I try to do as much work as i can but this is warranty work that is probably going to be big bucks. Their problem.Humm aside from a few recalls on my R1200GSAs I've only had one failure (leaky fuel pump on left side of tank) on the new 2007. That's about 120K miles between the two of them. 2007, 82K; 2011, 42K. I was always worried about FD failures but no such thing. Also had R1150's, R1200R, (2) K1200RS's all bought used, which probably did another 150K between them all. Zero issues. I think complexity increasing on bikes may be part of the problem. I maintain all my bikes personally and am an oil and filters change fanatic but it is rare that an oil related failure occurs in these types of discussions. Now don't ask me about the 2013 Moto Guzzi Stelvio reliability, but the dealer was great
Curtis have them check the breather on the final drive. It sounds like it might be plugged when it gets hot and starts expanding it is pushing fluid past the seal. This would not show on a short ride or sitting in the shop.Hopefully I get my bike back from Wild West tomorrow and hopefully she's cured. More details once this issue seems like a done deal.
Not a word from Wild West today. Forgive me if I seem to ramble or repeat something in this thread or even on TWT, I just got home from a nearly full, stress induced due to *emergencies* work day while I'm officially on vacation.Curtis have them check the breather on the final drive.
