Engine Output(main seal) or Counterbalance seal

I have a 2005 GS and have had the seals replaced 9 times. I would bet that it is either the engine output seal(main seal), counterbalance seal, transmission input seal or the clutch slave cylinder...

Good point Mudcat

On some of the past repairs I reviewed the invoices sent to BMW NA for repayment for the warranty work performed. The charge to break the bike in half was about $1,500 from what I remember. I came...

Hey Carter, I would like a red new GS

Carter, you sound like a real sour pus. I bet you get a lot accomplished with that positive attitude, NOT. Just because you don't have the balls to get a dealer to do anything for you out of the...

The counterbalance and engine out put seal can fail

I would look closely where the engine and transmission bolt together for signs of an oil leak. Might just be a very slight line of oil where the two parts join together. I have a 11-2004 build date...

Wouldn't the the foot brake tell the servos to kick in?

Makes sense on the front brake lever. But when I push the foot brake shouldn't that tell the servos to kick in?

Thanks for the input

TN does have a lemon law for motorcycles but it has to be filed within the 3 year warranty, so I am out of luck there.
