WASHINGTON, D.C. - BMW of North America is recalling dealer-installed accessory luggage racks (part No. 8 527 038) that can be equipped to the 2013 BMW C 650 GT scooter.

During riding, the attachment bolts of the luggage rack could loosen. If the attachment bolts loosen, the luggage rack could separate from the scooter and become a road hazard for drivers of other vehicles.

The potential number of units affected is 195.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the luggage rack free of charge. The recall (No. 13E030000) was expected to begin in June. Owners may call BMW at 800-525-7417 or e-mail the company at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.
