    Stop Sale Transmission 2016 2018 all K1600

    Not so good news.

    It appears there is a issue with the shift fork on the K1600.

    11/2016 to 9/ 2019 models effected.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I guess the good news is that BMW will cover it.
    There have been a few of these for the bikes and a few for BMW’s high end cars......the cover it.
    Again, welcome.

    Bmw not issuing a ride stop

    According to CycleWorks of Barrington this is not a safety or significant mechanical issue - BMW will not be issuing a Ride Stop order. More to follow.....

    Shift fork

    I was looking at buying a K1600B, and then was contacted by a dealership stating the “stop sale” due to shift fork issues..... maybe I’ll keep my 2016 R1200RT and be happy with its having no issues....

    Stop Sell

    Yeah, it’s a bummer. I just purchased the 2019 K1600B with the Monolith special paint 😁, but now have to wait until the issue is resolved before I can take her home 😫.

    Stop sell

    Nope... they admitted that they haven’t heard anything. They weren’t even sure what the problem was, although we now know it’s the shift fork. So I don’t have a clue how long this wait will be. Very frustrating 😡.

    I can’t imagine your frustration...... I would be so itching to ride that bike! I guess I’ll pass the upcoming Winter months thinking about a K1600B...

    I hope that you get your bike soon!

    Thank you for the PDF..... I like to avoid those “critical driving situations,” especially at high speeds...

    More importantly, can I get a “Dredger” and not a “Bagger” at my dealership?
