BMW Recalls 29,281 Motorcycles

BMW Motorrad USA has recalled 29,281 motorcycles due to the optional aluminum luggage cases partially blocking the rear reflex reflectors.

Due to the reflector obstruction issue, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

BMW says it will notify owners, and dealers will install reflectors on the cases or for the case mounts, an additional bracket with rear reflex reflectors, free of charge.
