    Water in the oil
    « on: 2017-05-05 10:46:14 »
    Anyone else had this problem? The bike is a late 2015 GT with less than 5,000 miles. After 4 weeks languishing at the dealer I am being told that they can't find any reason for it so it must be due the way I use it - my routine commute is 7 miles each way. As far as I can see there is nothing in the handbook about only using it for runs of more than 7 miles and I have not experienced this particular problem either with the last K16 or indeed any previous bikes. To add insult to injury I am being asked to pay for the oil change!

      your bike is still under warranty . I'm would not take it back till it is sorted, and would not want to pay for the oil change ,I would contact bmw direct and talk to them ,water in the oil is not a good thing .it doesn't get there by itself.!!!

          its might be the crank breather pipe on top of the gear box
          then when you wash the bike in goes the water

              Well the dealer waived the charges which helps and I am told that water ingress from external sources is not possible so there goes your excuse Keith! BMW customer service are useless - they just hide behind the pronouncements of the technical department (which as a mere customer you cannot speak to) and refer you back to the dealer. So the solution to the problem is to take the bike for a good run once a month but as this is undefined I still have this nagging feeling that if the problem returns it will still be my fault.

                did you check the antifreeze reservoir level?  it is up under the front above the front tire.
