The Unhappy K1600 Onwers' Thread: Problems, let's hear about yours
We could use this thread to list our issues thus far:
The starter will spin, but the bike does not start. After a few tries, the solenoid clicks and the starter engages the motor and the bike starts. This has happened 3 times. One time, I had to hit the starter button 11 times. The other times, I had to try twice and then three times. This is definitely not confidence inspiring. It's not the battery, I checked. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about this, because telling the dealer about it isn't going to resolve it if the bike starts when it's in his shop.
My top case was shipped with the inner light non functioning. My dealer attempted to rectify this by ordering a new topcase light and wiring harness. After several attempts, the dealer determined that the top case wiring harness is wired wrong at the factory. And the replacement topcase wiring harness is also wired wrong. Furthermore, he also told me that the topcase lock is also wired backwards, it unlocks when the panniers lock and it locks when the panniers unlock. Since I've only used the panniers once, and ride 99% of the time with only the topcase, I did not notice this. He checked the voltage coming from the bike end of the harness and it's powered correctly.
Ipod drops out suddenly and says "No USB", this is a regular occurrence.
USB memory stick does the same
Nav IV GPS froze once only.
Since this is a new bike, let's hear from others with similar problems to see if there's a pattern, like we have established with the "No USB" issue, or a random issue, like my starter.
