No.

I wonder if the fuel is vaporising in the lines prior to the injectors with the pumping volume less than want is needed (new pump added). Most seem to get going after things cool down. The engine does run hotter than most.
Had a similar problem with a Yamaha years ago.

Hi SimonS1KR & Wiffa,

Thanks for replying. I just rang BMW South Melbourne and they thought it could be the fuel pump pressure. I will have to bring the bike back for checking.

I will provide some updates. Wish me luck. My warranty ends in November so I have one more month to get it sorted.

Don't worry about the warranty now that you have reported the problem it will roll over until they fix it.

Good luck

BMW has approved the fuel pump upgrade on my 2017 s1000rr even though my warranty officially ended 2 months before the problem first occurred.  Well done BMW!

So after 15 months, my fuel pump has been replaced.

I had to visit Southbank BMW around 5-6 times which was a irritation and also nerve-wracking because my warranty has expired.  They were unwilling to acknowledge the fault and replace the pump without going through a sequence of steps.  This included trying to reproduce the fault, telling me to use different fuel, checking fuel pressure, updating the software.  Around 3 visits ago, they raised a puma measure.  I think this means it's a formal record of fault and resolution entails a process-of-elimination sequence governed by head-office in Germany.  Once the process has been conducted, they seem willing to replace the pump - but it took a fair degree of tenacity on my part to argue the case for over a year.

So, the good news is that this fault now seems to be recognised by BMW, and I believe the old fuel pump is marked as superseded.  They had a similar recognised fault for 2015 bikes (I think XRs).  Mine is a 2017 s1000r.

So, for future readers: if you succumb to this fault, march into the dealer and start quoting the known puma case.  Ping me if you need someone to corroborate that it's not an isolated case.

Hi Guys,

Finally, my bike is back to normal again.
Here was the last error they found, which according to them causing the cracking issue.

Fault codes checked:
Exhaust Flap Exhaust flap nut was was off, as it was not allowing the
correct amount of exhaust gasses to exit causing the fault codes.
Replaced and tension, road tested and issue was resolved

2017, just over 12,000 miles (sorry for dumb american units) -- saw this problem once about a year and a half ago, and now today. Both times called roadside assistance only to have it start right up when the tow arrived. It was warmer than it has been lately and usually the bike sits nine hours while I'm at work, but had to move it shortly after arriving today. This time I put two and two together and realized it had to be the heat. Just adding my story to the record for posterity.

Will be headed to the dealer to try for a pump while I'm still under warranty, I guess.

A few years back same problem for K bikes, heat and no start. With them it was the right side switch group warping in the heat and messing with the switches.
