Not surprising they donít want this info doing the rounds. Would be expensive for bmw to remove on every bike.

I can live with this issue now that there is a plausible explanation thanks to your info Biker.

Jggpossum thanks for the insights!  BMW Germany redesigned this engine starting with the 2019 F850 GS and F750 GS, and moved engine production to Loncin in China.  I wonder if forums for these bikes also reported this problem?

The BMW dealer checked with the technical support and confirmed there is a case in the system for this plug. The mechanic was annoyed that they didn't get this info to him, although he has an ongoing case, and he had to learn the info from me and had to ask the support. So for now BMW hasn't made a recall and is keeping a tight lip about it. However in a few weeks they will service it and do whatever they have to do. So for anyone having the mystery oil level issue be more persistent and they will yield eventually. The same as with the cold start issue.
