2017 won't start
« on: July 05, 2018, 12:45:07 AM »
Had an issue starting my bike yesterday arvo, the bike had been switched off for around 20min after my commute home, so it was still warm, went to start it again but would not fire up.

Tried switching off/on a few times as well as starting with clutch in, nothing worked. Left the bike for around 15min and when I tried again it fired up straight away.


Anyone else run into this issue?

This is a known problem with many 2017 builds - it's possibly the fuel pump. There have been one or two mentions on this forum, but mostly plagues the XR and the fix is a new fuel pump. I think they also add some heat shielding or something. BMW is definitely aware of the issue so go in and (verry nicely) demand a replacement. Good luck.

Cheers. The bike is back at the dealer for the next couple of days to troubleshoot, will see what they come back with.

Also have a coolant leak now! Hopefully they can sort it all out under warranty.

Matt, exactly the same thing happened to me last week.  MY2017, 15000km.  First time issue encountered.  Warm bike.  Battery seemed fine, and I guessed fuelling issue.  8 or so starts without turning engine over.  Walked away to look for troubleshooting guide.  5 mins later returned and bike started.  Bike has been fine since then.

Let us know how you fare with BMW, and particularly if they have awareness and acknowledge onus to replace at their cost.

I am just over 15,000km. Bike has been with them for 2 days now, hopefully they have an update today. Did you take yours in to the dealer?

No, I did not take it to the dealer because I assumed isolated incident - grit in fuel line or somesuch. 

Aside: I also try and avoid my local motorad store (Southbank Melbourne) because they were jerks during purchase.  Prefer to go to local bike shop or BMW Doncaster which is a long hike.

Apparently there is a PUMA case for the "hot start issue", there is a heat shield they install which is supposed to fix it. Parts are not available at the moment so it will be a few weeks until it can be fixed.

Heat shield has been installed but still experiencing this issue, back to the dealership again!

Happened to me again today.  Almost flattened the battery.

Guys, I have this problem also on a 2015 model. I have contacted BMW Australia and they have advised my dealer of some sort of fix but dealer says that 'fix' is just a software update. Nothing about a heat shield or new fuel pump. Very odd. Bike is still with the dealer. If there is a PUMA case they don't seem to be aware of it.
