Forgot to touch base about this issue.
Took the bike out for the day, it was pretty more down my way.
Stopped off at the local petrol station to fill up. Went to restart bike, no response. Wouldnt start.
Had to wait around for a few hrs for my roadside assist, eventually they came and the bike has been at the shop for about a week and a half.
BMW have told me that its the starter switch causing the issue, got to wait a few more days for the parts to arrive from Germany.
But im skeptical that this solves my original issue.
The first time i had problems, the bike cut out while i was riding it, at speed, on a racetrack. Why would a faulty starter siwtch cause my original issue?
The more recent occurence, it occurred on a hot day here in Melbourne, so im starting to think this is a heat related issue.
I have been told that a number of S1000s have been brought in with a similiar issue I'm having.
Anyone else having the same issue?
