I got a call today that my bike has arrived and was taken out of the crate, so like a big kid, I rushed over to see it being unpacked. While there I was informed that BMW changed their mind and are going to get the dealership to do it. I am surprised as BMW or anyone for that matter is not allowed by Australia Law to sell or released a defective bike to a dealership or customer. So the hold up has been a waste of time. The dealership is going to allow 3 days to do the job, even though they say it may take a day that BMW is allowing. But this is their first bike to have the recall done. I am comfortable as I know the Mechanic doing the job and his one of the best around with a lot of experience with BMW bikes. I prefer the fix is done slowly and correctly so not alarmed in any way. The best thing is that the bike is on the workshop floor waiting to have the Gear Box done at long last. I asked my Dealer Principal to from BMW about doing the first service free as it has taken 5 mths. to get the bike here and now the poor dealer has to cop it sweet. He told me that regardless it will be free even if he paid for it. He's also going to fit my Akropovick slip-on mufflers off my 2017 GTL free onto the new bike.
