Motorcycle Recall - BMW

NHTSA Campaign ID:  09V471000
Component:  Engine and Engine Cooling
Manufacturer:  BMW of North America, LLC
Recall Date: 12/04/2009
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2019
Defect Summary:
BMW is recalling certain model year 2009 and 2010 K1300S and K1300GT motorcycles manufactured between September 11, 2008 and November 19, 2009. Poor fuel quality may lead to small deposits within the throttle bodies. During engine operation in a low RPM range, typically near idle speed (when coming to a stop) air flow could be sufficiently restricted and engine stalling could occur.
Consequence Summary:
Engine stalling could result in a vehicle crash.
Corrective Summary:
BMW will notify owners and repair the motorcycles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2010. Owners may contact BMW at 1-201-307-4000.
