2013 BMW R 1200 GS Recall

BMW has recalled a few 2013 R1200GS adventure motorcycles due to an insufficient torque of a locking bolt that may cause the front fork tube to loosen.

BMW says only only 15 R1200GS motorcycles are affected. The bikes were manufacturers from Jan. 9 through Feb. 8, 2013.

BMW says if the fork loosens it may hinder the rider’s ability to control the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners and dealers will reinforce the affected fork locking bolt connections, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
