Hi all,

I was organizing my garage and moving my bike when I noticed a couple of drops of a bluish fluid on the ground under the engine area. My last ride was about a week ago. I’ve never had an issue yet on the bike. Fluid looks to have originated from a bolt hole maybe? Can’t really get in there to see very well. Any thoughts on what this might be?

any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Well known issue if you search this forum. Bad design by BMW
I tried searching before I posted but as I didn’t know what to search for nothing came up. Thanks to everyone’s replies I was able to search more effectively and find the previous posts. Off to the dealer I go I guess. Just sucks, I live about an hour away from the nearest dealer and it’s now already cold and wintery where I am. They have a pick up service. Might try to have them wave the pick up fee if it’s a warranty issue.
Thanks for the help!

Take to the dealer. Nothing you can do about it.

Weep hole which indicates bad seals in the oil pump and water passage ways. They will replace the seals or maybe even the complete oil pan.
Is it normal for the fluid to be blue? The other posts I’ve found about this issues show pics of standard oil seepage and the residue is oil colored. This is quite blue as can be seen by the pics. Does that indicate a more serious issue?

UPDATE:

BMW road side assistance picked up the bike last Tuesday and delivered it to the dealership free of charge.

The dealership diagnosed a water pump leak and replaced it. Part of the process involved an oil and filter change so I got a free service out of it.

Once the work was done the dealership delivered the bike back to me today in an enclosed trailer, again, free of charge.

Bike is back home good as new and will be put away for the winter in the coming days.

Shout out to BMW Toronto for taking care of it.
