DaveTheAffable Posted October 15, 2007 Share Posted October 15, 2007 I saw a little piece of thread over in "Bike Related" things, where 'Kinsley' was talking about his final drive failure. This is NOT A FINAL DRIVE FAILURE THREAD. This is a warranty question. This tale is looking like it will have a happy ending, though it's not a done deal yet. I may come out of it with a "newer design" final drive and a 2 year warranty on an 05 GS with 35K on it for little or no money . I'll keep the thread updated as it unfolds. My bike is used, and long out of warranty. BUT, my brother and several friends have BMW cars. They have said on several occasions that replacing a part does NOT extend the warranty. In my brothers case, his transmission went bad on his BMW 5 series a few months before warranty expired. BMW replaced it, no charge. 18 months later, the second trans bit the dust. BMWNA told him, "Tough toenails. The warranty extends to the VEHICLE, not individual parts. I hope to buy a new bike someday. So, what's the experience in MC side of house. If a final drive, clutch, ABS unit goes out under warranty, does BMWNA extend the warranty on those parts? (I didn't ask Kinsley only because I realize that different people may have had different experiences) Link to comment
