this is the response i got from my dealer after asking them what is happening as it was log with them 3 month ago
My mail to them
Hi there

Please can you update me on my log with Bmw re the excessive heat on the right hand side. This was reported nearly 3 months ago and I have not received any feedback.   We are now in summer and the problem has nearly become unbearable

Please can you let me know what is happening

There responce

HI Gary

I have spoken to BMW SA Technical department and they have informed me that the case has been escalated to BMW Germany. BMW Germany is currently busy investigating the issue, they are possibly looking at coming to SA  to do further analysis on our models. Unfortunately I cannot confirm a date at this time.



I believe we should all follow up with our dealars and let them respond via mail to you so we have records

Just been on a 120km ride after wrapping the CAT with Titanium exhaust wrap. Itís made a huge difference. Still some heat but not the unbearable heat I previously experienced. I did not use the Silicone spray as suggested so there is even more hope!!

i am sure catalytic converters is a devious plan between platinum mines and petrol producers , cats decrease performance and make petrol consumption rise


just saying  :peepwall:
just wanna have fun , and ride ... and ....... ride

Hi BLK,
I bought the wrap in the States on Amazon, however I googled the product in SA and seems to be widely available.
Good luck

The wrap is available at ATS and First Race. We sometimes use it on our race cars.

I am about to get a brand new 2017 and this thread has really made me wonder if i am doing the right thing.  :eek7:

So I got the bike and have only done around 250kms on it. I did notice the heat also......and, this probably sounds stupid, but it depended on how my feet were on the pegs.

I normally ride with the ball of my foot on the pegs (unless Im in traffic). In this position I did not notice any heat. When I put the center of my foot (arch?) on the peg with my toes pointing down I noticed the heat.
I think part of the problem is that my foot acted like a spoiler and directed the wind upwards when my toes were pointed down and the arch of my foot is on the peg.

Hope Im explaining it ok.

Edited:
With Pillion and now that my bike is run in, the problem is much worse. I have also laid a complaint with Northside and was told they have had lots of complaints including from the workshop manager who has just received a new bike. They feel that BMW will do something about it. Not sure when.

Hi Guys,

I bought a 2015 GS and took it out for a short ride yesterday.

I can definitely feel the heat difference compared to my 2008 GS and my wife also complained about the exhaust heat (I have motoradical pannier frames fitted with a heat shield)

We are going on a trip over the long weekend and hope that this won't cause any issues ito comfort.

It might be wise to still tackle the root of the problem - high combustion temperatures due to lean mixtures. There are ways around - just don't tamper with the O2/Lambda sensor as it actually protects the engine from running way too lean.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

 :biggrin: :biggrin:
Ek het baie met die probleem rondgespeel toe ek my fiets gekoop het en glo my die enigste oplossing is om van die CAT ontslae te raak. Nou daar is 3 maniere om dit te doen:

1. Vervang die BMW Header met Akra of Remus Header. (Gaan jou +/- R8000.00 kos) Voordeel is jy kan die BMW een weer terug sit as jy eendag die bike verkoop en hom dan verkoop.
2. Laat iemand die CAT oop sny, die binnegoed uithaal en hom weer toe sweis. (Goedkoopste manier, behoort nie meer as R1000.00 te betaal nie. Baie plekke doen dit vernuut as hulle die
     binnegoed  kan hou en verkoop.
3. Vervang die BMW header met n tweedehandse 2014 tot 2016 Header.

Wat jou waarborg aan betref is elke persoon hiermaar op sy eie. Dit is jou keuse of jy dit wil laat doen of nie.
Ek het vir opsie 1 gegaan en ook die CAN vervang met n Akra maar dit is nie nodig nie en die CAN het niks met die hitte te doen nie.
Ek het geen hitte probleme meer op my fiets vanaf ek dit gedoen het nie is dit is net n plesier om met hom te ry, alleen of met pillion en maak nie saak hoe warm dit is nie of hoe die wind waai nie.

Ja en ek stem 100% saam dit is sommer BULL dat mens moet geld spandeur op so n duur fiets om n probleem op te los waarop BMW net hulle rug draai.
Hulle het my ook nooit weer gekontak ivm die probleem nie. SKANDE BMW. >:( >:(

Hi Roodt, jammer maar ek het een by jou gekoop en ingesit maar dit het niks aan die hitte probleem op my fiets gedoen nie. Ek kon geen verskil agterkom nie en hy het nog net so warm geword.

Ek is nie verbaas nie.  Die hitte in die "combustion chamber" sal oor afstand en tyd geen verskil aan die hitte van die uitlaatpyp verander nie.
