Skywagon Posted November 15, 2007 Share Posted November 15, 2007 I moved to Houston from San Francisco about 3 months ago. My bike arrived Monday and I got my first ride in last Saturday.. A quick jaunt to Brenham and back. On the way back I got stuck in stop and go (more stop than go) traffic. The outside temp was about 78 and a light rain. I noticed my oil light bars which have always been around 4 started creeping up. After 20-30 minutes or so, it made it up to bar 9. This is the last bar before Red. I cut traffic, pulled over into a parking garage and let it sit for about 30 minutes. It was down to about bar 7. I got on the freeway and started cruising at 70 for about 3-4 miles on the way home. It never got back down to below 7 bars. I have ridden the bike in much much greater heat over 100+ weather in CA with stop and go, and it has never heated up. The oil was fresh and new. It actually felt and smelled hot vs.s just the bars being wrong. What to do..It is a 2005 R1150RT with 4000 miles. It is still in warranty through next month. The oil is fresh and full. I am planning on taking it to some local BMW dealer this weekend. Any other advice or hints on a good BMW dealer near Bellaire, Texas 77401 would be appreciated. Regards, Link to comment
