You're just too good looking ?
At least you got the Metzler RR as opposed to me I'm the pilot RS.... Want to swap???
This is my rear tire at 200 miles... I am pretty sure at 800 miles it is going to be at the wear markers. Ok.. I can trade.. haha

...and if there's multiple people in the pic, might want to mention which one you are. I'm assuming you're on the left?

Obviously you are babying that bike >:)
605 miles today. Dealer tomorrow for the unlock and 2nd oil change. Last time the dealer sees it I hope. As in no warranty issues. The engine sure is noisy. I went to another ///M today however and he only has 150 miles. His is not as ticking as mine, but it does have some ticking.

My tire is coming apart. Maybe I am too hard on it. Those are 2 cracks. They are about 10 inches apart, and both on the right side. You can see the mold seam line, and the crack is smaller. I am hoping the dealer can warranty it tomorrow also.

It seems like you have the wrong tire for the job.

No deal ???
My RS did really well today. That crazy tire will last 2000 miles however hard I ride.... But it's missing that little bit from the Metzler RR or Supercorsa .....

Attached picture of a pilot RS after 3 half hour session at the track on old RR. Like you,ight not use them the way it was intended. ?

BMW are aware of engine ticking and it is normal. Due to the 2 part shift cam design they say all is normal. If you rev the bike at idle fairly quickly you can some times hear a distinct click. Not the normal ticking in general. They are also aware of the clutch being sticky or jerky and say this is normal for the run in period. I personally found the clutch sticky during the run in period. Felt like a novice trying to take off on the thing. It did seem to improve later on.

The transmission has been a little notchy and the clutch a little grabby on every new bike I have ever bought. I also was lucky enough to get a hypermotard 950 this year and it is the same. Clutch was grabby and the trans was a little notchy. After about 500 miles it really started to smooth out. Here is a pic of that bike. Now, post up some pics of your 2020.

I appreciate you investigating the 'ticking' issue. It is really bad when you are a person like myself that builds engines. This ticking sound is exactly of that when you want to kick yourself in the butt after building a SBC engine and you crank it for the first time. Lifters are not pumped up, lash is wrong on a rocker, you have to have the patience to stand there and wait on the oil to start doing it job. The only thing I can assure you of is that if this new K67 engine was going to blow up, it would have done it yesterday. I put that thing at 124 @9k for 8 miles. Then the typical road I burn up and down I laid down some good times in the corners out there. Bike is broke in and today I get the limiter off, and BMW dealer sign off on it. Back to Ida road today to really play. Then I can start playing with the ECU myself.


If you can get some BMW representative to explain the exact reason why shift cam has a loose part involved that requires it to tick, that would be very helpful. I am going to the BMW dealer this morning and it is my intention to get an area representative on the phone and request and explanation from them. I dont mind that they say it is 'normal' .. they just got to explain to me what normal is involved that something has a lash parameter that requires it to tick.

I am looking forward to the explanation too. Believe it or not, I have not had a chance to ride my bike. Family commitments have swamped me since I got it home. This weekend will be my first ride. What are your thoughts as far as how vibey she is. Some people mention it, and some don't. I trust you, and thus, wanted what you have observed. Obviously, your bike has been ridden hard during its break in.
