Hi Guys and Gals...
Sorry my first post has to be for help.
I am in Colorado Springs competing in a rally and need some advice.
My bike fell over on the right side. Was on the side of the highway picking my glove which I dropped. Ground was not level and bike tipped over on the right side.
Got some help from a good samaritan passerby and got it upright. Bike started up so I took off. 5-10 miles down the road I had the red triangle of death flashing and coolant was coming out at a low to moderate rate on the right side. Temperature indicator was pegged. Fan was running too. I let it cool down and got another few miles down the road before it was maxed out again hot.
I called BMW roadside service and they got me a tow to Colorado Springs and now I am waiting until Tuesday and the BMW dealership opens.
I am assuming the weight of the bike on the running light end up putting pressure on the radiator or hose and made a leak.
1. Any ideas of what might have broke that caused the leak? I haven't had the fairing off so not sure what all is in there.
2. Any suggestions on how to get a quick fix so I can get back on the road? I have the tools to get the fairing off. Bike is under warranty so I don't want to do anything to void that. But desperate to get riding again.
3. Any other suggestions for rental bikes or loaners? I have to be on a bike to compete in this rally.
