This talking tech seen this ONCE before is bullshit. The problem exists and BMW knows it since the bikes have been produced. There is even a BMW-USA bulletin about this problem. They simply kept it smoothly in order to avoid a recall. If you are lucky to discover this during warranty they make it for free, otherwise will depend on your relationship with the dealer. I was not tha lucky and BMW is giving me 25% discount on parts to replace on my own. It follows bellow the bulletin copy and pictures from my camshaft on the 45K service.Ok, I took my 2017 GSA in for its 48k service. Shop called me today to tell me when they opened the right side and rotated to TDC they found notches on top of the cams from my rockers? Tech said he seen this once before.
Apparently the rockers are too hard and they notch the cams? Apparently BMW has seen this before and came out with a notice years ago? Shop took pics and will send to BMW to see if it can be repaired or replaced.
Anyone ever heard of this?
