Both of BMW Motorrad’s tiniest bikes are the victims of the German brand’s latest recall, as both models suffer from an issue with their chassis. In total, 2,376 motorcycles are affected by this recall.
According to recall documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the G310 platform has an issue with its frame and/or its kickstand, where repeated use or loading of the kickstand can see it become damaged.
Over time, the section of the frame that encases the kickstand bushing could eventually break, which could lead to an injury of the rider and/or passenger. As such, a recall has been started for the two motorcycle models.
Accordingly, BMW Motorrad will notify affected G310R & G310GS owners, and BMW dealers will inspect the frame, installing a reinforcement plate and new kickstand, or the frame will be replaced if necessary, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin August 7th, 2018.
Concerned G310R & G310GS owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
