    F750GS - Engine woes

    I've put about 5,000 miles on my December '18 F750GS and sadly now have an engine issue.

    Basically, it has developed a significant vibration at about 4000rpm and above - and at anything below 40mph in 4th a twist of the throttle results in plenty of chugging before it gets moving, which I'm pretty sure is not how it used to be.

    Anyway, the dealer has had a listen and a quick look. First suspicion is a dodgy cam chain tensioner, but I have the feeling there will be some trial and error in the resolution process.

    Must admit I'm disappointed to run into mechanical issues at this stage.

    Hope this is a one-off as I am off for a 3000 mile tour shortly which will take me to 6000 miles and I would prefer not to need to try BMW recovery! I hope you get it sorted quickly and easily.

    Sounds like they should be checking the stick coils before pulling everything apart!!
    Oh Great and Wise Deity, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    Courage to change the things I can! And the wisdom to know the difference!

    You could well be right (I have no idea), but I think BMW techs are like doctors... they don't like you going through the door with a diagnosis in your hand.
