It's being fixed by the local BMW shop. I have surgery scheduled next Thursday to do the same for my collar bone, which went from one piece to two separate pieces. :(.

I hate deer.

Yes, which ones and what is the torque spec?

ETA: By inner ones, you mean the ones that are a little yellow/green in your image?

okay.

I've not intended to post what I've found, but -- safety first -- here it goes :/

edit: watch for STRANGE noises when pushing the bike. it was NOT AUDIBLE while riding.. even when engine turned off. I suspected the brake... it was pretty hard to find out the cause.

That's not good, I'm sure your dealer knows, that should reach BMW service for sure, screws are not supposed to come lose, right? Typically blue Loctite is used on that type of stuff but don't see any color on that screw...

According to the manual, no Loctite.

With the back wheel already off awaiting a new tire, it was easy to eyeball those bolts on mine. None were visually loose like in the photo. Tomorrow after work, I will put a torx wrench on them to confirm they are not loose.

Wow, thanks for sharing the warning.

Looks like that bolt head was rubbing on the brake rotor..yikes

Thanks JVB for the torque spec. Just finger checked mine and they all seem snug, but will give them a check with the torque wrench when I have a few minutes.

How is this possible?
It surely is tortured. Maybe something was caught in the wheel (and been there for long enough)?

Shouldn't this be posted in GS-LC problems thread?
