    Unfortunate, but early failure is a rather common happening, it's part of the "bathtub" curve (named for the shape of the curve) that usually appears when failures vs time are plotted.

    BTW - please read: http://forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread.php?t=46055 - I'm adding the info to your thread title. Please add it yourself in future posts to the tech forums - helps you, may help other people.

    Congratulations on the new bike..

    This may sound silly, but what year was the BMW R1200RT? From your description of the problem, this is not a new R1220RT.

    Why wouldn't you want BMW to fix your shock for free (warranty)?
