G310GS recall
« on: July 19, 2018, 01:23:33 pm »
Any news on the recall on the G310GS regarding the side stand/frame issue? Dealer says they are awaiting parts before the process begins! To sum up, what I've learnt is that some bikes have suffered bent/broken side stands and some even severe enough to damage the frame! Is BMW once again placing riders in danger?
Some say I lack ambition,
I say I value my freedom.

Failures have been going on for years, far fewer now, BUT they are reported and there are recall's I don't regard the histrionics as being necessary, frame damage does not mean dangerous to the rider, many Dakars were written off due to frame scrapes, where filling and paint would have been fine, but no, new frame required.  :sip:

MODS! 

MODS!

Delete this thread immediately!  I beg you in the name of all that is holy in India and a few other countries.  I am not asking for myself, but think of the impact of this news on 2SD.  Please!  He will destroy a keyboard in 2 hours.  Think of the financial implications!

"Is the bike so heavy that it bends the sidestand"?   :biggrin:

I haven't received a recall notice. Frame and side-stand is fine. But BMW will replace it quick and easily if true in typical BMW fashion.   :deal:

It's the vertically challenged fat arses that stand on the pegs to get on and off, thus bending the stand.

Egg zactly!  No, never mind about vertically challenged, or fat arse, I would just never even think of mounting a bike with my weight on the footpeg while the bike is on the side stand.
Anyone who does so deserves the damage they cause.

It's called mechanical sympathy.

You never saw me with my old XL, only way for me to be able to kick it through was to climb up and start it on the sidestand and then ride it off!
Worked and no recall needed.

I believe most Jap bikes are designed with this in mind... they are generally on the shorter side so when testing a new design any defect will come out and they then ammend the prototype to suit this style of mounting... :sip:

 :biggrin: Anyone ever seen me out and about on my X Challenge? I won't climb on the footpeg, because the instinctive mechanical sympathy I've mentioned just won't let me do it.

But I've given a lot of people a good giggle watching me make repeated attempts before I finally manage to throw my leg over!  :lol8:

Harry forgot to test the sidestand, or he turned a typically BMW fanboy blind eye. :ricky:
