    2015 Chain Recall

    Hi, got my fabulous new 2015 RR last week and BMW called me this week to recover it. Reason was a "chain" problem.

    Anyone got any details?

    It's a bit vague but I'll update the forum when I get a full report.

    My dealer tells me there are only two affected in the UK. Mine and one that hasn't been delivered yet. Something to do with not passing QA on the chain. I was scheduled to ride it in for Run-In service today but BMW Germany advised to have the bike recovered and not to be ridden.

    More to follow next week.

    Looking at mine I'm not at all surprised. The quality looks shite I must say!

    Update: So there was a QA concern on the chain rivets so swapped as precaution. All fixed today and bike is on its way back to me as I type. Despite the issue I have to say Motorrad Central Scotland (Dalkeith) have been their usual excellent standard for customer service. They've paid for my service as a gesture for the inconvenience. I'd recommend them highly if you're looking for a Beemer in Scotland.

    It appears to be only the two that slipped through the net and the dealers in question (mine being one of them) have been contacted directly. I suspect this is why it's not out there as a general issue and it's probably BMW airing on the side of caution. I wouldn't worry about it as they have been very Pro-Active in this case.

    Just took mine out yesterday for the first day of fully derestricted fun. OMFGG what a beast...it's amazing. Get those run-in miles done ASAP. I've had a 2010 and 2012 RR and this new one wipes the floor in every department...enjoy
