24k-Isn't that a valve check too? Will they do it warm? I thought it had to be stone cold to check.

Well, that would be a long wait. 

Yet another reason to trailer it to the dealer.  Damn, I hate placing my bike on a trailer when it's in running condition.

Get a Harley, then you won't think anything of it.

Best answer! :lol:


Seriously, get a service loaner. Talk them out of a demo for a couple of days. It's a great way to try/get tempted by new stuff.

Update - After a lot of back forth and data being sent to BMW Germany; BMW Germany instructed BMW NA to place an order for a new DME unit.   ;)

Bike should be ready for pickup by the time I get home from work travel.

It's home!  It runs! The Nav5 comes on immediately every time!

And as a small token of goodwill, the dealer installed a harness that routes the cockpit accessory plug directly to the battery instead of through the CANBUS.
