This Recall May Affect Steering And Increase The Risks Of A Crash Occurring

There is nothing like hopping on your bike and hitting the open road. A motorcycle offers a sense of freedom and an experience that you just can not get from the inside of a car. Drivers understand that they are taking certain risks every time they that they mount their Harley, Honda, or BMW. Here in St. Petersburg, and the rest of Florida for that matter, traffic has increased steadily over the years. More drivers and vehicles, equals more opportunities for accidents to occur, for all drivers, not just motorcyclists.

Recall Expected To Begin September 1, 2017


BMW of North America is projected to start recalling 2014-2017 BMW R1200GS and BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycles in September. There are a potential 14,626 affected units that can increase your risks of sustaining an injury. The fixed fork tube may become detached from the pressed-in seal that holds the piece to the upper triple clamp. If this problem occurs, it will alter the driver's steering and handling abilities, and possibly even result in a crash. BMW will notify owners directly, but people should also feel free to contact the company's customer service department at 1-800-525-7417 to get more information.

The remedy for the recall is that certified dealers will install another fixed fork tube bush. However, if the fork itself has become damaged beyond repair, it too will become replaced, and all of the work will be completed free of charge for the owners of the vehicles. Many people view only having two wheels as being more dangerous than four. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but if this fork comes loose, you may find yourself feeling like you are on a unicycle. Traveling at any rate of speed, while losing steering, is a recipe for disaster. Stay informed about items like these, and spread the news to friends, neighbors, and family members. Then, with any luck, we can make our lives and community a little safer and better for everyone.
