    Gen 4 Recalls

    Does anyone know if there’s a way to check if your gen 4 needs a recall? Heard a rumour that they’re being recalled for tappety engines. Mines definitely sounds like that and I mentioned it in another thread and was confirmed by others that said they’ve been told that’s the characteristics of the new engine.
    would be nice to have a thread just for actual recalls and not rumours.

    Only bmw will know if your specific bike is subject to a recall from the vin.

    Will there not be generic recalls across the range?

    There may be, but the dealer will not assume your bike is subject to a recall without first checking the vin, or having the bike in the workshop. Your question was if anyone knew a way to check if their bike was due a recall.

    For example. On previous gen bikes there was an early problem with the switchgear. Bmw knew about it and the fix was to replace with a revised part, but they didnt ever issue a recall for it, they simply waited for customers to come in with the problem, check the vin (to determine if the faulty part code was present on the build data) and then initiate the swap.

    Hope that makes sense.

    normally only get a recall if its a safety issue, otherwise they leave to a service or a complaint.

    This is actually a serious one. At least two reported incidents in Germany. Oil hose wasn't crimped correctly and started pissing oil all over the rear tire. One bike was even outside the time frame declared in the official recall. Good on your dealer for checking this one.

    My Sport was delivered to the dealer this morning, but I can't have it yet because of this recall.

    Picked mine up Saturday but whether anything was done prior I'm none the wiser.

    Apparently the recall doesn't affect my bike after all. Not really much of an issue as I won't be picking it up until Saturday anyway.
