Brand new 2011, has 550 miles. Dealer is sending me the spacer, that is, not there. The bolt is just floating in frame.
Whoah. Out of all the things going on with the 2012s (which mine is affected) and the other bikes, this is by far the one that surprised me the most.

Is that just a complete accident? I would think a dealer would see that on prep.

And all these people ranting and raving about the recall and wanting ONLY factory techs to do the recall work. Pfffft....there you go. Ive said it before, factory install techs tend to become complacent when they do the same thing over and over and over.

I'm shocked to see this kind of thing.
I've owned heaps of Yamahas and Hondas from new and never even heard of frame or engine related bolts coming loose.
Will be giving my '12 a good going over when I get it back from the recall. Now if it wasn't for needing to buy new tools for those damn torx bolts...

Wow, guess I'll check mine when I get it back from recall rebuild. I've owned 16 Suzuki's (GSXR's and Hayabusa's) and never had any issues like this damn 2012 s1000rr I have.

dont worry about any damage. that bolt doesnt carry any torque worth mentioning. all the tensile bolts are under the valve cover.

No, the Yammies just come out with rear set pegs that shear off while you are riding.

I've got the exact same bolt back out of my 2013. WTF. (2,400 miles). Or at least that's when I noticed it.

Taking it to the dealer in the morning so I can have it documented.

Oh and guess what the bike keeps turning itself off when I'm going down the highway. Holy hell... I'm hoping it's only the on/off switch and they can just replace it under warranty.

This is craptastic!!! Oh man I'm Piss*d Off.
These types of things should have already been addressed a long time ago as I've been reading about this stuff for quite some time.

Are you trying to say that you're dissatisfied with the quality of your BMW product?
