MJ - You are a true gentlemen for not naming the dealer here but I am sure inquiring minds want to know
. I'd contact BMW NA as clearly the dealer, not you, did the pooch. You went to them for their expertise. It was in their care and custody. You didn't break it. They did! OUTRAGEOUS
. Run, don't walk, from the heavy handed techs therein. Maybe you are better off not going back there.
I had a cracked case with internal bearing failures out of warranty on an R1200GS. It was cheaper (although certainly not cheap) to replace the entire transmission - OUCH.
I'd check with Anton Largiader, an inmate here and generous contributor: http://www.largiader.com/
Very knowledgeable man.
Or Ted Porter: http://www.beemershop.com/
His shop does a lot of transmission work.
Or BeemerBoneyard: http://www.beemerboneyard.com/
for parts and/or information.
