BMW Recalls Small Number of GS R1200 for Suspension Problem

BMWBMW is recalling less than 2 dozen 2013 R1200 GS motorcycles manufactured January 9, 2013, through February 8, 2013.  The manufacturer says because of an insufficient torque of a locking bolt, the front fork tube may loosen.  If the fork loosens it may hinder the rider’s ability to control the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.  BMW will notify owners and dealers will reinforce the affected fork locking bolt connections, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov. NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V154000
