    Porsche recalls the bike

    I remmember a post about a member complaining about the Porsche bicycle a while back, but I can't find it. Anyway now there is also a recall on the carbon fiber handle bar that is faulty and will be replaced for aluminum one

    Here is the article:

    Sorry Ben,

    That was too cryptic for me, and maybe for a few other people. I know rms from math and electrical engineering as "root mean square" value, but otherwise I drew a total blank. Please explain for the benefit of the great unwashed general public.

    Ben,

    what? there is a RMS problem? ... I'm afraid Porsche will never admit to that, not even extend the warranty for RMS failuires


    Fritz,

    RMS = Rear Main Seal

    I take it you don!t own a Bosxter or a 996 carrera? if you do, you haven't found it leaking oil under the engine yet from a leaking RMS?;) well, don't worry there is always time, mine just did this x-mass at 50,000miles

    Luckily for me, I'm one of those that the crankshaft bore remained concentric "within tolerance" so the engine didn't need replacing, and no oil leaked into the transmision so that didn't either.

    Apparently its a design flaw of the Boxster and 996 M96.01/03 engines so the is no fix. After 7 years they still haven't been able to fix this too common problem and 2003 models are still showing up with RMS leaks as we speak. Porsche doesn't want to admit to it and if you are out of warranty, you are out of luck, unless they take care of it under their benevolent good will.

    In case you want to learn more:
