BMW recalls 2008-2010 F 650 GS & F 800 GS

BMW F GS Recall Summary

BMW is recalling certain motorcycle model years 2008 and 2010 F 650 GS and F 800 GS motorcycles manufactured between January 2008 and December 2009. During engine operation, a vacuum is created in order to draw fresh air into the canister.

This air then mixes with the fuel vapors captured by the canister, and is subsequently combusted. Due to the routing of the ventilation hose, water near the end of the hose could be drawn into the charcoal canister.

Consequence

Water could flow into the canister causing a stalling condition increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy

Dealers will inspect and add an additional hose and route it such that the present defect is prevented. This remedy will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2010. Owners may contact BMW at 1-201-307-4000.

Notes

Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
