MattStLouis Posted November 8, 2007 Share Posted November 8, 2007 Took the 97 r1100rt to a local BMW repair shop near my house. We started talking and I asked him why it was so easy when down shifting from 3-2 to get it stuck between gears. His answer was that the transmission input splines needed to be greased. This of course requires the transmission to be removed. Is this correct? The bike has about 25,000 miles, if this is true I will sell the bike and keep riding my Harley(I will miss the heated grips and ABS, good cornering without dragging parts), because this is the last straw(head gaskets, speedo cable both need replaced already). I have put 40,000 miles on the Harley and have never touched it, except for oil/tire changes, so the BMW is really starting to seem like a pain in the butt. Link to comment
