WASHINGTON, D.C. - BMW is recalling certain 2013 R1200 GS motorcycles manufactured Jan. 9 through Feb. 8 of this year.
Due to an insufficient torque of a locking bolt, the front fork tube may loosen. If it loosens, it may hinder the rider’s ability to control the motorcycle.
The recall (No. 13V154000) potentially affects 15 units.
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. Owners may call BMW at 800-525-7417 or e-mail the company at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.
