Motorcycle Recall - BMW

NHTSA Campaign ID:  08V342000
Component:  Steering
Manufacturer:  BMW of North America, LLC
Recall Date: 07/14/2008

BMW is recalling 428 model year 2007 F800S, F800ST, R1200R, K1200S, K1200R, K1200R Sport, and K1200GT motorcycles. It is possible for the coating to separate from the inside face of the steering damper housing. If this happened, the coating could partially clog the oil bores within the damper.

If this occurred, the steering damper could become stiff increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the steering damper free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during July 2008. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
