What are the defects?

The fixed fork tube can suffer preliminary damage when unusual incidents with momentary high stress occur.

What are the hazards?

Prolonged usage with high stress may cause the pressed in top seal plug in the fixed fork tube to loosen, leading to oil leaks and increasingly imprecise drivability.

If this is not noticed or ignored and further high stress incidents occur, the plug may become completely loose, posing a hazard to the rider and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Known owners will be contacted by BMW Group Australia or a BMW Motorrad dealer. Consumers may contact an authorised BMW Motorrad dealer, or call the BMW Group Customer Interation Centre on 1 800 813 299 to arrange an inspection and repair.

For further information consumers can contact BMW Group Australia via the BMW Group Australia website: http://www.bmw.com.au or contact the Interaction Centre on freecall: 1800 813 299.
