New member here. I own an 05’ 1200GS and have been looking to buy a 19’ or 20’ 1250GSA, which brought me to this forum. I’m in Colorado USA. Are any of these issues coming from owners in the USA? Or are most of the problems from European bikes? Being new here I’m not sure how many American members are active in these forums. Because of this thread I have stopped my pursuit of buying a new 1250gsa until there’s clarification on the engine issue. I don’t want to spend $25,000 on a lemon. So my question is, are there any Americans in this thread reporting these engine issues? To the guy reporting no noise on a 600-mile Demo bike, isn’t most of the problems coming on at higher mileage and getting worse as miles increase? Hopefully more info is found before winter settles in. Until then I’m not buying not am I trusting any BMW dealer to be honest with me. Thanks to all who’ve contributed here.
