    Looks like other BMW owners are living that way also, fortunately riding weather is slipping away for most in the US.

    BMW K 1600 GTL & K 1600 B Recall

    BMW of North America is recalling 4,672 of its 2017-2020 K 1600 GT sport-touring motorcycles, and 2018-2020 K 1600 GTL and K 1600 B models due to possible transmission issues.

    BMW says the transmission may malfunction and cause the rear wheel to lock up. If this occurs, the risk of crash increases

    The K series are gigantic tourers that make my RT look nimble, I donít think those do much lane splitting, but I get what youíre saying.

    Already put 1,000 miles on the new clutch and rolled the odometer over 40k miles.

    Just under 3,500 miles ridden in 3 months. I only took the train one day since I started my job in August.

    Riding this bike in the pouring rain has been pretty good, especially with my heated Kanetsu vest, BUT my Roadsmart III tires feel like garbage in the wet.

    Specifically the front feels very uneasy at angle and it slips at the slightest provocation. I'm running 35/40 front/rear cold psi.

    I think the front tire is just worn out and I need a new set. I want to get those Michelin PR5's but first I have to research the cheap Chinese replacement tire pressure sensors.

    The BMW ones are nearly $250 a piece. Chinese ones are $45 each but there's more to them than just buying new ones and slapping them in.

    There are two frequencies that are available and I also have to buy a tool to "wake up" the sensors, read their ID number, and possibly need to program that ID into the bike's ECU so it recognizes the new sensors.

    I have to do some research on the GS911 forum to figure out what my bike needs.

    http://www.gs911usa.com/

    And here is the tool to wake up the new sensors and read their ID numbers

    https://www.jbtools.com/autel-ts408-...l-usa-version/

    Contact patch for the RoadSmart III



    Aerostich wasn't too asked after a 40 min ride today work in the pouring rain



    Me and the other BMW GS guy are the only rain riders at my work. The rest are all fair weather folks. Maybe they're just smarter than us! LOL

    Oh and forgot to mention I got my first flat earlier this week. I plugged it with the kit and compressor I carry in my saddle bag and was back in action in 15 mins.

    The center stand was great for this little exercise.



    Here's the plug after a 25 mile ride on it. I like to do the final trim of the plug after a short ride to make sure it's happy. I didn't take another pic of it after I used a razor to cut it nearly flush.

    Sorry, just saw this.

    The warning is for the failed tire pressure monitor sensors mounted inside the wheels. An annoying problem common to these BMWs that costs a fortune to fix and annoyingly puts a warning on your dash that is always up by default.

    Re: AV80R's BMW R1200RTP "Poncherello"

    Why do you have to change the sensors? Car ones last through a set of tires, 50k, so why change bike ones at 5k? Are they ruined in the mounting process?

    The crap ones that were put on the Buick with the Michelins have taken two years to settle down and read correctly. No special tool needed to calibrate.

    At that price, I would not put them back. I have a gauge.

    The batteries are non replaceable in the sealed units and even brand new replacements from BMW are a crap shoot in terms of longevity.

    Some folks put forth that it depends on how long they have sat on the shelf before being installed and also their lifespan is a function of the heat they experience during use. Lithium ion batteries I believe.

    When I was shopping to buy one of these bikes it was common to see them with one or both sensors non functional. Crappy design :

    I do know that some of the Chinese ones are taller than the BMW OE sensors, and that only becomes a problem if you get a flat and the collapsed tire damages the aftermarket ones that aren't as low profile as BMW OE.

    Arash, I was frustrated by the lack of durability and reliability of aftermarket sensors in my mostly tracked Z06. When I went back to oem sensors all my problems went away, even in the extreme conditions of tracking the car........ymmv.
