More bad news for BMW owners as the German manufacturer has also released a recall notice for a number of its K-bikes. A problem with the front-wheel bearing could lead the bearing’s corrosion, which would affect the movement of the linkage lever. BMW has not said how many motorcycles this recall will affect, but the issue spans the 2004 to 2010 model years of the following bikes: K1200GT, K1200R, K1200S, K1300GT, K1300R, & K1300S.
Again BMW has not set a schedule or remedy for this recall, but concerned owners can contact BMW directly at 1-800-525-7417, or talk to the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236. As always the NHTSA is available online at http://www.safecar.gov.
