Question about BMW R 1100 S Motorcycles
-worn shock bushings
-worn/faulty bearings at final drive pivot point
If you have a center stand for your bike, you can do some diagnostic work yourself with the bike on the ctr. stand.
Try moving the wheel while holding it at 12 and 6 and 9 and 3 O'clock positions. Listen/feel for clicking. This would indicate a loose or defective final drive pivot bearings.
Lift the wheel from the 12 o'clock position and see if the click noise comes from the shock bushings.
Very hard to diagnose without a center stand or service stand.
