    BMW Scooter Owners Report Stalling Problem

    Overseas riders have reported stalling issues, below are some info.

    Another Update From "J.W." (Below) (December 27, 2012): "Further update: Whatever they did to my bike, it does not seem to have cured the underlying condition, at least not fully. The bike has not stalled on me in motion yet since I got it back, but today, after stopping briefly for lunch (so, again, bike warmed up, stopped for a while, then started again), at 1/4 tank of gas, the bucking and surging happened again, and shortly thereafter, when coming nearly to a stop, then giving it gas at 15mph or under, then chopping the throttle, the revs dropped below idle to where the engine nearly died, several times. Darn it..."

    ------------------

    UPDATE From "G.G." (see post below) (December 26, 2012): "During my second ride the bike stalled again, but this time it was followed by a non-specific check engine light. Problem progressed to another episode of stalling, this time accompanied by incorrect temperature reading on outside temperature gauge and second non-specific solid yellow triangle error, soon followed by EWS!

    Despite the dreaded EWS! error I was able to uneventfully ride home without further stall episode (3 times in 45 miles). After turning off the engine by kill switch but with the key in the on position, the radiator fan ran continuously for about 10 minutes (despite cold outside temperature and cool to touch engine) before it stopped, the EWS! light returned and the bike could not be restarted.

    Tried restarting over the next 4 days without change. EWS! error, no way to energize ignition.

    Bike returned to dealer via tow truck via very poor experience with Roadside Assistance. More info to follow... Not having a great new owner experience thus far.

    Note to the comment from Texas owner, my stall issues all occurred on dry roads with temperature 38-44 F. Bike is stored in heated garage and has not yet been one drop wet..."

    ---------------------

    From "G.G." (December 18, 2012): "I have a brand spanking new C650GT. On the first ride, with less than 20 miles, the bike stalled once at est. 10-15 mph for no reason, with no warning, no error lights and no loss of dash board lighting of controls. It immediately restarted and ran for rest of the ride.

    Unfortunately the weather here is currently terrible and I suffer from PMS (parked motorscooter syndrome). I will write back if the issue recurs. I am grateful for this forum as I would have just ignored this single event had I not read the other comments."

    Don't worry lah.

    This is BMW's 2nd attempt at producing scooters after a long time since their first.
    Better production models will come after learning from their mistakes.

    The problems are from USA. Probably different production factory from those imported to SG.

    Anyway, you have been using for a few days liao, no problems right?

    But every 10K maintenance will cost a bomb, saw my friend riding GS per 10k maintenance is around $1.4K ~$1.8K. Going to burn a hole.

    I'm hoping it will be cheaper and will only know the out-coming in 6 ~ 9 months time.

    BMW Scooter Oil Leak?

    BMW owner from Taiwan:

    From "J.C." (January 2, 2013): "I am a C650GT owner in Taiwan. Here we have about 200+ of the first arrival lot of C series scooters delivered within last 2 months.

    Almost every one has the same problem: The oil leak (minor) on the final transmission case. It is just a bit wet on the case, looks like gasket is not doing its job very well. It is not dripping though.

    The dealer said the bolts might not be tighten with required torque at the assembly line, and tried to apply more torque to the bolts for those which went for the first service. However, the situation still exists. We wonder if the owners in other countries are also experiencing the same issue?"

    Could you give a link to that Dyno? Would like a detailed information of the kind of Dyno machine used & settings done to achieve that reading? That picture alone is not very clear. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks. What made you choose over the TMAX530, if you ever did consider? Sitting on the fence between the TMAX and Beemer...for sure the storage on the T is a letdown....but from web the engine response is pretty good for pick-up and go....

    How's the kymco engine on the GT,it response to throttle?
    Could you fit 2x FullFace in the underseat storage?
    thanks.

    I owned 2 silverwing 400 scooters (JDM 04 and Euro 08) a year ago, mainly selection is the under seat storage space and super silence engine. Tmax will never be my choice, small seat storage. For engine response and good pick-up, i already owned the biggest scooter "Honda VFR 1200DCT". No fight.....

    All those years, I'm eyeing for 600cc scooter and BMW "scooter" came to ours shore. The throttle response is good, no delay in moving-off and my liking is BMW signature. Yeah....

    I don't own fullface helmet but reviews did mention able to put 2 fullface helmets.

    BMW Scooter Safety Recalls

    The BMW scooter has already undergone a recall in the U.S.A. For the first BMW scooter recall, the issue is apparently the side panels, which can become loose when riding.

    BMW Scooter Recall 12V556000
    BMW C600 Sport Maxi-Scooter. Report Receipt Date: December 3, 2012. Potential Number of Units Affected: 266.

    Summary: BMW is recalling certain model year 2013 C600 Sport Maxi-Scooters manufactured August 7, 2012, through November 20, 2012.

    Problem: The fasteners on the front side trim panels may have insufficient strength to retain the panels at high speeds. If the panel separates it could interfere with riding and handling of the scooter and increase the risk of a crash. The panel could also become a hazard for other road users.

    Remedy: BMW will notify owners, and dealers will reattach the left and right front side trim panels with stronger "snap-lock" fasteners. The recall is expected to begin in January 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations (at) bmwusa.com.

    Yes, i think so. The fuel gauge is giving false read-out.....

    Don't worry it's nothing, I guess during assembling they made this many times.

    Got back my bike this morning, according to the chief mechanic (and also what we predicted) confirmed out-of-petrol. Was told not to rely on the fuel gauge & "low fuel" light, pump-up when hit 280km ~ 300km. All BMW bikes have this problem..... not sure how true was it.

    So bike OK but electronic not reliable...

    Hmm....

    16 litre tank at 21km/L, max range = 336km.

    14L = 294km.

    I think the mech is right to say top up by 280km. You will probably have 50km to spare.
    Since our pump distance during tour is about 200km or less, shouldn't be a problem.

    Good to see that you very positive about the new BMW scooter. Keep up the feedback - maybe in time BMW will realise the maxi scooter potential and make their own german designed engine for it with more reliable electrics - when that time comes i shift back to BMW - but always DIY.

    I had various BMWs from the 70s, 80s & 90s - some over a few years and always learnt to gauge fuel by known mileage calculations - even though some had 24 litre tanks. Built in gauges & even after market ones always let me down. Other than that BMWs were always an exclusive pleasure to ride and maintain on DIY basis. I finally stop owning & riding BMWs due to back & hip injury and couldn't do DIY.

    Do have a lot of pleasure & fun riding your bike.

    Hi Scooby - Yes Long time no meet or write in the forum - only refer to now & then to find out whats going on. I still got my SW and whenever in Sin Chia Poh always use it to scoot here & there. I m based in KL area mostly and so far the SW best commuter. Other projects in hand but hardly got time to touch - will be down in SGP soon as thinking of buying a used/laid up Honda CX650 Turbo which needs a lot of internal work - but depends on price.
    Ok will try drop by at Rail Mall this thursday - when i m down im mostly staying at Bukit Panjang so its not to far - as long as you guys dont laugh at my SW - always dirty & tatty. Have to be this way to avoid attention in KL parking areas.
