July 25, 2017—BMW of North America recalled 2014–2017 BMW R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure motorcycles.
In the affected motorcycles, the fixed-fork tube might separate from the pressed-in seal plug that secures the tube to the upper-triple clamp. As a result, the handling and stability of the motorcycle will be affected, which increases the risk of a crash.
BMW of North America will notify owners, and dealers will add an additional fixed-fork tube bush; damaged forks will be replaced with a modified new part. These repairs will be done for free. The recall is expected to begin Sept. 1, 2017.
For more information, owners may call BMW of North America at 800/525-7417. Owners also may call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236 or go to safercar.gov.
