starter over run


Recommended Posts

Hi BMW fans my 04 RT starter is acting up it will run about ½ a second to long. The starter seems to run just a bit after I let of the starter button and the motor is running. There is no grinding so I am assuming the starter is disengaging. Is anybody familiar with this problem? The bike will do this about 80% of the time. I plan to keep riding for a couple of weeks until the dealer can look at the bike. Am I running any risk to do this or should I stop riding until the bike is repaired. My warranty is good through November so I am hesitant to start a repair myself.

Probably no harm being done - my old /5 does the same thing occasionally. Since the bike is under warranty and you have described the problem to the dealer, I'd keep on riding until you take it in.
