Motorcycle Recall - BMW

NHTSA Campaign ID:  08V564000
Component:  Suspension
Manufacturer:  BMW of North America, LLC
Recall Date: 10/02/2008
Potential Number of Units Affected: 365
Defect Summary:
BMW is recalling 365 model year 2005-2006 HP2 Enduro motorcycles. The front threaded fastener of the Paralever link may not have been tightened to correct specifications. If the fastener was not tightened according to specifications, it could loosen. Over time, it is possible for the fastener to separate from its housing. If this were to occur, then the final drive of the motorcycle would not be properly supported.
Consequence Summary:
If that happened, motorcycle handling would be compromised increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will remove the front threaded fastener of the Paralever link and replace it with an improved fastener. The recall is expected to begin during October 2008. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
