BMW recall
« on: 06/16/09 07:37AM »
from MCN

Model 2008 RG1200 GS/2008 R1200 GS Adventure
Compoent:  Electrical System
Potential number of units affected:  N/A

Summary:  BMW is recalling model year 2008 R1200 GS and R1200 GS Adventure motorcycles.  In certain situations, such as high generator speeds combined with large demands for electrical current, spurious signals could emerge within the motorcycle's electrical system.  If this were to occur, it could affecte the pressure sensor signals of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) control unit.  If this ahppened, the ABS could switch off; however, in such a situation , a warning lamp would illuminate.  Normal braking would still be available to slow and stop the motorcycle.

Consequence:  Any time vehicle control is compromised a crash may occur.

Remedy:  Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the necessary components free of charge.  The recall is expected to being during May 2009.  Owners may contact BMW at 800 831 1117
