BMW issues a recall for certain 2013 models
April 26, 2013
BMW is recalling certain model year 2013 R1200 GS motorcycles
manufactured January 9, 2013, through February 8, 2013. Due to an
insufficient torque of a locking bolt, the front fork tube may loosen.
If the fork loosens it may hinder the rider's ability to control the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.
BMW will notify owners and dealers will reinforce the affected fork
locking bolt connections, free of charge. The recall is expected to
begin in April 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY
1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
