Seat hump - pad hatch. Rubber latch grommet rips/fails, replaced under warranty. Have seen several people report this on here (including me).

Today I'll be mostly riding.....

The rubber latch grommet is pitiful. It got shoved behind the pad the first time I tried to use it. I fixed it but I have resolved not to use the hump for storage. I'll just leave the pad closed.

They need a better solution for a latch.

If you search this forum, there are a couple of workaround solutions which seem to resolve the issue, including fitting an aftermarket grommet or an alternative BMW part. Personally it was a point of principle for it to get replaced under warranty as I'm not in the business of digging BMW out of a hole due to shoddy design of parts (even if it only involves spending a very modest amount of cash).

Reserve tank sensor replaced under warranty, was coming on after 70-80 miles. New one still comes on early in my opinion but that seems to be the norm with this bike.

My starter switch has acted a little strange a couple times, but nothing worth bringing it to the dealer yet.

Not an issue.
There are several options available.
The tubed tires are no more of an issue than the fact that the handlebars are too wide for me. I just modified them.

The left side of my rear swing arm fell off. Now there's just a swing arm on the right side.
