My bike went in to the dealer for its 1st service on Thursday, i told about them about slight coolant leak from the tell tale hole on the left hand engine block? only done 1800 miles well they have replaced the water pump and or seals?. i also mentioned that the riders heated seat won't get "HOT" so they are now waiting on BMW getting back to them???. Maybe i need a hot water bottle...
I'm surprised they swapped the water pump. Nearly every pump on all the water cooled boxers admit a slight sprey of coolant for some time from new. It sometimes looks like lots but normally the level does not drop. I understand dealers were instructed not to swop them until they had time to bed in. Mine took 2K and a few mountain passes to stop.
Think RTman10 he's asking will they ? Mine did the same when new. Think it stopped leaking at about 3000 miles. Had one top up. Just ride the bike and check the coolant level it should settle down. Some have had the pump changed.
