Hi all! I have a 2021 S1000RR M Pkg with 6k miles. The K67 had been my dream bike ever since its reveal in 2019, and I am glad that I finally pulled the trigger after an accident in 2021. I did daily-drive my RR for a few thousand miles while my other bikes were being repaired. It's even been ridden on light dirt road couple times before!

The bike has the following upgrades:
  • EVOTECH Frame Slider
  • EVOTECH Axle Slider
  • EVOTECH Weighted Barend
  • BMW Radiator & Oil Cooler Guard
  • GB Racing Cover Set
  • Fullsix CF Passenger Seat Cover (removed passenger footpegs)
  • TST Fender Eliminator w/ Integrated LED Tail Light (Blue)
  • TWM Quick Release Gas Cap (Blue)
  • BMW M Mirror Block Off
  • Rizoma Turn Signal
  • Alpha Racing Chain Adjuster
  • PUIG Racing Windscreen (Light Smoke)
  • Pirelli Diablo Super Corsa
  • Vesrah Brake Pads VD-192XX

Currently, the bike is leaking engine oil and is due for a timing chain tensioner "recall". These problems need to be addressed before I can ride it again. Feel free to ask me questions about any of my upgrades. I look forward to seeing you on the road!

Welcome! Why's it leaking oil? Haven't heard too much about that being an issue!
Thank you! So far all I know is oil spots in my garage so I put a mat underneath the bike. Every couple days I see a fresh drop of oil on the mat. I won’t know for sure what the cause is until I take it in. Glad that BMW has the best warranty and service in the business! I will update once I know more.

You may want to recheck that the engine covers are tightened and sealed properly.

I say this since I noticed you have aftermarket engine covers on parts of the engine and my dealer mentioned he's noticed that original engine covers sometimes leak if not tightened correctly after install -- IIRC -- I think he said there is a seal of some sort when engine manufactured which can be damaged when several of the OEM bolts are removed to install the aftermarket engine covers.

Its not a brand issue but just that the OEM covers can come loose.

I have GB Racing covers also and they have never leaked -- just passing on experience of the Service Manager where I bought my bike.

That’s a good point. When I installed secondary engine covers, I was sure to use a torque wrench. I should check again just to be safe. In any case, the leak seems to come from somewhere above the left foot shifter area, probably unrelated to engine covers.
