    Defective Seat R1250GS

    Hello All,

    I have a 1mo old R1250GS with 2000mi on the clock and my seat started to wear and almost tearing! Iíve had many bikes in the past and Iíve never seen anything like this before? I never keep anything in my back pocket (I wear Revit Sand 3 pants .. no back pockets). My dealer Cross Country took pictures to send to BMW last week and waiting to hear back.

    I was wondering if anyone experienced anything like this before?


    Thanks!

    seat

    I have 5,220 miles on my 1250GS and have no seat wear. I wear jeans in the summer and Klim Badland pants this time of year. Looks like it may be caused my zipper teeth. Do you have vent zippers in that part of you pants. If not, I hope BMW will make it right for you.

    Buy something more comfortable like a Sargent seat (which doesn't need a donor seat pan) and put the brand new warranty seat away for if you ever sell the bike.
