BMW Scooter Recall
BMW has recalled nearly 2,000 of its 2013-2015 C 600 Sport and C 650 GT scooters due to front brake-line issues. BMW says the brake lines may kink will the handlebar turned fully to the left, which can cause a brake-fluid leak.
If this occurs, the rider may lose braking on the BMW scooters, increasing the risk of the crash. BMW confirms that the rear brakes remain fully functionally. BMW says the C 600 Sport scooters were built Aug. 2, 2012, to March 31, 2014, and the C 650 GT scooters July 30, 2012, to May 29, 2015.
BMW says it will notify owners, and dealers will replace the the affected brake lines with a flexible hose covering free of charge. Parts are not available now, but will be beginning December 28. BMW says a second notice will be sent when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
