Recall Date: 05-15-2006 Affected Vehicles: 13,200
Component:
Service brakes, hydraulic:antilock
Summary:
On certain motorcycles, under rapid, repeated, and unusually harsh braking, loss of abs capability could temporarily occur.
Consequence:
Temporary loss of abs braking could increase the risk of a crash.
How to Fix:
Dealers will add a physical restriction, in the form of a banjo bolt with a flow restrictor to the brake line, and on certain models dealers will install new front brake discs of a slightly larger thickness free of charge. the recall began on june 5, 2006, and will be a phased mailing through october 2006. owners may contact bmw at 1-800-831-1117.
Recall Date: 04-24-2006 Affected Vehicles: 9,260
Component:
Service brakes, hydraulic
Summary:
On certain motorcycles, if certain procedures are performed that involves removal of the front left brake caliper, the abs sensor cable can be routed incorrectly and when the caliper is reinstalled, the sensor cable can come into contact and rub against the front brake disc. overtime, if the chafing becomes severe, it is possible to lose the abs function.
Consequence:
Loss of abs function could increase the risk of a crash during certain riding conditions.
How to Fix:
Dealers will attach additional retaining clips free of charge to the abs sensor cable, which will provide a more secure connection to the wheel carrier. the recall began on june 5, 2006, and will be a phased mailing through october 2006. owners may contact bmw at 1-800-831-1117.
Recall Date: 04-27-2005 Affected Vehicles: 500
Component:
Engine and engine cooling
Summary:
On certain motorcycles, exposure of the throttle housing to road debris could fall and become caught between the throttle-body and the engine block.
Consequence:
This could restrict movement of the throttle-cable pulley that, in turn, could affect throttle operation and increase the risk of a crash.
How to Fix:
Dealers will install a cover over the throttle-cable pulley free of charge. the recall began on may 10, 2005. owners may contact bmw at 1-800-831-1117.
Recall Date: 03-03-2005 Affected Vehicles: 3,084
Component:
Fuel system, gasoline:delivery:fuel pump
Summary:
On certain motorcycles, the defect involves a water leak around the fuel pump that is integrated within the fuel tank. an o-ring seal attached to the pump's electronic housing does not meet specifications and water can bypass this seal and contact the pump electronics.
Consequence:
Engine stalling, or a failure to start, could occur without prior warning. if stalling were to occur while the motorcycle was being driven, the rider would be unable to maintain speed or accelerate and a crash could occur without prior warning.
How to Fix:
Dealers will replace a sealing ring. if the fuel pump electronic unit is corroded, it will be replaced free of charge. the recall began may 9, 2005. additional my 2005 r1200 gs motorcycles were added to this recall in december 2005. owners of my 2005 motorcycles will receive a notification during february 2006 through august 2006. owners may contact bmw at 1-800-831-1117.

On certain motorcycles, an adapter in the rear brake line connects a rigid section to a flexible section. if the rigid section is not properly engaged in the adapter, it is possible for a leak to develop.
Consequence:
Brake fluid loss could result. the rear braking capability would not be possible, increasing the risk of a crash.
How to Fix:
Dealers will inspect the rear brake line and adapter. if the inspection reveals that the rigid section of the brake line is not properly engaged in the adapter, then the entire adapter will be replaced. the recall began december 15, 2004. owners should contact bmw at 1-800-831-1117.
