BMW Recalls motorcycles due to fuel leak
2006 BMW HP2

BMW says these motorcycles were repaired under a previous recall 13V-617. During that recall, the support ring was fixed on the fuel pump. For the new recall, BMW will now replace the fuel pump and the auxiliary fuel pump when applicable.

The reason for the new recall? The affected motorcycles have a fuel pump flange that may crack, possibly resulting in a fuel leak while the engine is running.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump(s) with an improved version, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Oct. 2, 2020. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

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
