Our sister publication, ScooterFile, has had several readers refer them to a story on webBikeWorld regarding some owners encountering a stalling issue on their BMW C 600 Sport and C 650 GT maxi-scooters. The issue appears to pertain to low-throttle or idle situations such as stoplights and slow-speed maneuvers. While I’ve had more than one non-BMW scooter occasionally stall on me idling at a stop light, what these owners are reporting appears to be something much more chronic. What’s particularly alarming is reports of the C-series bikes stalling during slow-speed turns, which for some, led to them being unable to right the bike without dropping it. Unfortunately many of these incidents have also ended in getting the bike towed.
You can read a full breakdown of the issue, as well as some possible fixes, over on ScooterFile.
