Yet another oil issue!
Heres my tale of woe to add to the other threads about excessive oil consumption.
K16B purchased in Feb 18 with 2000 miles
Ignition coil faulty and replaced by dealer after 2 months at 2600 miles.
On checking oil not long after getting bike back, dip stick was dry! Added 2.5 litres over course of next few weeks and oil still only at 3/4 level on dipstick.
Set off on long trip round Scotland in June at 3600 miles, on 2nd day, oil warning light illuminates and check to see a dry dipstick.
Added a litre of oil over next 24 hours and on way home check once engine is properly warmed and dipstick dry yet again! Add another 3/4 litre for trip home.
Take bike into dealer next day who tell me its low on oil. No **** sherlock!
Thats 4.25 litres in 1600 miles since the ignition coil was replaced and its still low.
Dealer says no leak, its definitely not smoking, no oil in air box. BMW have asked for a 500 mile road test which dealer now carrying out.
I'm taking steps to reject the bike and as much as I love it when its working, I can't keep this one whatever the outcome is due to fear of long term engine damage with that much oil usage. Its likely this will be my last ever BMW bike as the reliability is not there and the costs outside of warranty would be potentially ball breaking.
