BMW G 310 GS, G 310 R and C 400 X Recalls (Brakes May Stick)

BMW Motorcycle and Scooter Recalls

BMW of North America has recalled certain model 2018-2020 G 310 GS and 2017-2020 G 310 R motorcycles, and 2019 C 400 X scooters, due to brake issues. The GS models are produced for BMW in India by TVS Motor Company.

BMW says the front and rear brake caliper pistons may corrode, and possibly cause the piston to stick or drag in the caliper bore. This can cause the brakes to lock up while riding, increasing the risk of a crash.
