Motorcycle Recall - BMW

NHTSA Campaign ID:  09V256000
Component:  Service Brakes, Hydraulic
Manufacturer:  BMW of North America, LLC
Recall Date: 07/01/2009
Potential Number of Units Affected: Not Announced
Defect Summary:
BMW is recalling model year 2007-2009 R1200RT motorcycles. Due to routing and assembly tolerances of the front brake lines, it is possible for the lines to be under strain. In combination with vibration during riding, the brake lines could develop a leak. The level of fluid in the front brake fluid reservoir could drop rendering the front brakes inoperative.
Consequence Summary:
In the event that only the rear brakes were operational, severe loss of control during hard braking could result. This could result in a serious crash.
Corrective Summary:
The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a remedy or notification schedule. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
