Hi, Italupo I would have to say normal life expectancy of a crankshaft should be around 200,000 KM with average riding habits depending how well you plead your case BMW might meet you half way on parts and labor or just parts, but they are under no obligation to do so since the bike is probably out of warranty for more information about your question please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: I would like to service

google gs1150 workshop manual, heaps of info there, But you better know something about mechanics, a word of warning do not try to bleed or try to relace the brake fluid, if your model has abs, if it does send it to your closest accredited bmw dealer.

irst do a compreshion test on all the pots to see if there is any velve problems like one is leaking as slow engine speed's then change the plugs for a new set, always a good thing to do first? then tune the carbs,, if one is off a little it will miss fire at low revs
