BMW is recalling over 2,000 K-bikes from 2007 & 2008 for brake fluid that could foam under certain conditions. Affecting BMW K1200 S, K1200 R, and K1200 R Sport motorcycles, if the brake fluid foams, it could lead to reduced braking power, which in turn could result in a crash. BMW owners at risk to the foaming brake fluid will have their motorcycles retrofitted with a screen insert from BMW, free of charge.
This recall is expected to start in November 2012. Concerned owners may contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com. As always the NHTSA is available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov. This recall is an expansion of safety recall 09V-202.
