I have been on to them trying to get confirmation and a statement.

It was mentioned yesterday http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/bmw/46699-recall-faulty-brakes.html.

In saying that my bike is in the affected range and I haven't had a letter yet delivered to my door yet but it does seem to be the real deal.

Thing is this is a fix to an already previously changed under recall part that still isn't up to the job.

But True!!
Just seems a bit pointless that anytime anyone mentions BMW's somebody will have a go about final drives. very boring and predictable.

How many people do you know, apart from Vader , have had a final drive failure?

Well I am blaming Vader.

I spent a lot of time chasing up Vader's final drive problems with BMW's outsourced PR man and I think he got the hump and is ignoring me.

That must be the answer. He is deliberately not sending me stuff for a minimum of 24 hours after I ask for it.

Either that or he is useless. Surely nobody could be that useless and hold down a job? He must have the hump with me, for which I blame Vader:hitler:

I think it may have been better if it had been in relation to final drives as it would have meant that Vaders problems were the fault of BMW, instead of passing the buck to the end user.

Just had this in:

BMW Motorrad has announced the recall of R-Series boxer-twin and K 1200 GT motorcycles, manufactured between August 2006 and May 2009, after a potential fault in a brake pipe was diagnosed.

It is possible that vibrations on affected motorcycles could cause the front brake pipe to leak and, over an extended period of time, brake fluid to escape.

BMW Motorrad would like to reassure customers that the number of motorcycles, in which leaking brake pipes was noticed, is very small (one-tenth of a per cent). No accidents have arisen as a result of this fault.

In the event of this happening, riders will notice the leaking brake fluid or a reduction in the brake fluid level in the handlebar mounted brake fluid reservoir. This may result in a gradual loss of braking performance of the front brake. The rear brake is not affected.

The BMW Motorrad dealer network will soon contact all customers who own motorcycles potentially affected by this fault.

BMW Motorrad regrets any inconvenience caused to its customers.
