Unacceptable... BMW should do a RECALL !!!
Happened to my 2011 800GS. Didn't do anything about it because I traded it in on something else. Don't know what the dealer/new owner did about it.
Just bought the 2013 model and it turned 400 miles on it today and it is starting the 'crack' in the same place as the 2011 model did. F__%#* this shit! This damn bike hasn't even been broken in yet.
This shit is unacceptable no matter what you pay for a bike but especially when you pay $13k for a motorcycle. My dealer and BMW corporate will be hearing about this as well as my attorney.
