BMW recall

The decision to recall 6486 K- and R-series motorcycles Australia-wide comes after BMW discovered over-tightening of the rear wheel bolts could lead to fractures in the mounting flange and possible failure.

The recall relates to those particular series of motorcycles built between 2003 and 2011, including:

R 1200 GS, R 1200 GS Adventure, HP2, R 1200 RT, R 1200 R, R 1200 ST,
R 1200 S, HP2 Sport, K 1200 S, K 1200 R Sport, K 1200 R, K 1200 GT,
K 1300 S, K 1300 R, K 1300 GT.

BMW Motorrad Australia is in the process of contacting all owners of the motorcycles affected, so it can replace the aluminium mounting flange with a steel one.

Anyone with specific enquiries about the recall is advised to contact an authorised BMW Motorrad dealer or call BMW or call the BMW Group Australia Customer Interaction Centre on freecall: 1 800 813 299.
