When starting engine from a stationary position, while in neutral, the throttle gets stuck revving at approximately 2000 rpm. Cant shift out of neutral or decelerate/acelerate throttle. This has happened on multiple occasions. After several attempts of turning on/off the main switch,and rockining the bike back and forth the issue sometime goes away... Bike has 3100 miles on it
Pulls to the left. I have replaced the front tire 4 times in 15000 miles due to excessive wear caused by this alignment. Dealer denies problem. This is an ongoing problem that owners of this motorcycle are well aware of and many have brought it to bmw's attention with no resolution.
Software update installed by the dealer has caused the traction control warning light to illuminate and an apparent failure in the traction control. Bmw (motorcycles) refuses to provide any information related to this issue, not even a confirmation that the issue exists.
