Good Evening,

A great ending. I have an appointment to have both switches changed at no cost, even though the warranty has expired. There were enough switch failures that BMW is using a different manufacturer that has figured out how to make the switches reliable.

A big hats of to BMW of Grand Rapids. I have been dealing with them for over a decade with very good success. Fine people who have worked really hard to solve any problems that I have had with the four BMW's I've purchased from them.

All good news.

But, we used to run the VIN on each bike in for service.
That way, owner and dealership aware of any and all open recall work.
Surprised the dealership hadn't told you before when bike serviced.


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

Good Morning,

I bought the bike from someone in Indiana and have not had it in for service so they never had an opportunity to scan for "campaigns." Not sure why it was not flagged previously.

Switches installed. Biggest difference is the high beam switch. It was really hard to use on the old switch, now it just slides nice and easy. All else works just fine.

Ride safe.

Bob
