BMW Recalls F 650 GS & F 800 GS

BMW Recalls

BMW has recalled F650/800 GS models and G 650 X models due to possible rear-wheel lockup that could result in a crash. The statement was released on June 15, 2010.

On F 650 GS and F 800 GS models built from Sept. 27, 2007 through March 30, 2009, the drive chains may not have been produced to specification. As a result, the drive chain may break, causing it to become trapped between the rear wheel and frame, causing rear-wheel lock.

On G 650 X US Challenge, Country and Moto models built from November 29, 2006 through May 19, 2008, the roll gear pin’s mounting attachment could break overtime. As a result, the fragments may get trapped between the drive chain and rear sprocket, causing rear-wheel lock.

Owners should contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417. For additional information, owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration’s Vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit www.safercar.gov.
