Important Information (11/98):     On 11/13/98 BMW NA issued a service bulletin regarding "Tampering/Non BMW Approved Modifications".   This service bulletin states that a warrantee claim for repairs on your motorcycle could be denied if a "causal" relationship can be shown between a modification or use of non-approved parts and the mechanical failure.  For more information please contact your dealer and refer to Service Bulletin #2851.  And please take the time to read Rob Lentini's thoughts on this issue.


Still More Important Information:    
Following soon after Service Bulletin #2851, BMW NA issued Service Bulletin #2852 with even tighter restrictions that could void your warranty.
