Recall BMW Australia Ltd—BMW S 1000 RR Motorcycle

Discussion in 'Motorcycling News' started by NetriderBot, Oct 27, 2014.

  1. Recall number: 2014/14397
    Date published: 24th October 2014

    What are the defects?

    BMW Motorrad has ascertained that the screws securing the side-stand pivot mount can work loose. Due to a process fault, the part of the frame where the side-stand pivot mount sits was not adequately cleaned.

    What are the hazards?
    There is a possibility of traces of foreign matter remaining between the frame and the pivot mount and in the threads for the pivot-mount threaded fasteners. This can result in the pivot mount of the side stand working loose. If this situation is not noticed the motorcycle can topple when propped on the stand.
