Hi folks, I have recently acquired a 2008 BMW R1200R which now has 7300kms on the clock. I think it is a brilliant bike and I really enjoy riding it. It does however have a few minor gripes that I have noticed since riding it around. The first is the crappy indicator switches - but I cant do anything about that, so Ill move on!!! My 2nd small gripe is the gearbox. Under normal use, the gearbox is great and runs up and down the cogs with no problem at all. However, if I give the bike a bit of a squirt away from the lights (brisk acceleration), when I change from 1st to 2nd, most of the time the bike just changes to neutral and the bike will just rev out, at which point I sheepishly try again and shift it up to 2nd (looking like a twit in the process). It doesnâ€™t seem to make any difference if I really give it a good prod on the gear leaver or not. It happens warm or cold and the bike has just been serviced and it still does it. If I just pull away from the lights at a nice steady pace, then it swaps from 1st to 2nd without any problems at all. I can also run it hard through the gears from 2nd to 6th without any problems at all. If anything, Im guessing that since the bike is just 7300kms old, then the gearbox might be still settling in and the problem will eventually disappear. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Cheers all.
