Part is billet yes. It really does not look like a factory part. Looks very aftermarket to me, but you can see its real quality! I ordered directly from BMW Germany, so I believe its the new replacement yes.
I am prepping the bike for track, so still have to drain the oil. Will remove the sump and look of that gold nugget...
I dont think it is a recall. Just happened that I was the unlucky one of a failure of the part, but what surprises me is that the previous owner of the bike said that it has been replaced before. Even more scary, he said 2 months ago. Maybe he was hard on the gearbox???
