BMW Recalls K 1300GT and K 1300S Motorcycles


BMW is recalling certain 2009 and 2010 K 1300 S and K 1300 GT models manufactured between Sept. 11, 2008, and Nov. 19, 2009. The potential number of units affected is 2,019.

Poor fuel quality may lead to small deposits within the throttle bodies. During low-rpm engine operation, typically near idle speed (like when coming to a stop), air flow could be sufficiently restricted and engine stalling could occur.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will repair the units for free. The recall is expected to begin sometime in January.

The NHTSA campaign ID number is 09V471000
