Splines not lubricated from factory!


New member
My service rep. Told me some R18"s didn't get splines lubricated from the factory. So for the 7000 miles put on it were dry? Was told its a splines lube recall 🤔 So when owners come in for service ,they spray lube on the splines. How much of this am I to believe. Anyway they replaced the reverse module free.
Nah, not quite. There is a service bulletin for the splines to have a ‘special’ aerosol lubricant applied to them (it’s on the forum somewhere in detai). BMW check your VIN with the mothership to tell you if your bike requires it. Mine did. It was a 2 min job, free of charge of course, not a recall, not that I’ve heard anyway. Nowt to worry about.
