Good evening all! I've searched up and down for the better part of today. I was riding my '12 on a 250 mile trip playing hookey from work on Friday and 20 miles before I got to my destination (Va Beach). I smelled 90wt really heavily and when i went to downshift to pass a vehicle it wouldnt downshift, on the gear indicator it would go from 6 to blank. After a bit of working it at 35-60mph I could get it to shift with significant effort. I found if i double clutched it, it would engage. I assumed it was a bent shift fork or bad synchro. When i caught a red light I glanced around and saw my left boot coated in oil. Then I realized with the clutch disengaged the sound of the tranny was completely quiet but engaged it was incredibly noisy. Like dogbox noisy. I stopped at a gas station and gave it a look. I got the bike home via truck now. I drained what was left from the tranny and reserviced it. I cleaned up the bike and started her up with the easy panels removed. It took 20 minutes but I figured the gear oil to be leaking from the area where the gearbox and engine mate. I imagine its the input shaft. The mag plug had significant metal on it, the oil was black and full of metal as well. I take this to mean the transmission is cooked. The BMW website has the gearbox listed for a significant amount. I'm thinking ebay or marketplace will be my solution but I want to be armed with information before shopping around. From what I've read around I need a 2010-2012 transmission from a GS. Is there any other options available that will bolt on and be fully functional? Will the clutch pack most likely have gear oil on it and be ruined? Pics to follow.
