    2015 model recall - gear lever

    I recently purchased a 2015 RR from Cannons of Essex and received a call from them on Wednesday informing me of a recall on the gear lever. I had the bike booked in with Pidcocks of Derbyshire for its first service anyway, but I was surprised that when I called them and passed on the message about the lever they knew nothing about the recall.

    I've got to drop the bike back as they didn't have the parts in stock, but it got me wondering how many more dealers have yet to inform their customers?? FTR there's only 11 bikes in the UK with a lever from this bad batch so it's not an epidemic.

    However, if you have a 2015 bike it may be worth calling your dealer and ask them to check out your bike on their database.


    Hope this helps.

    No idea, as neither Cannons or Pidcocks could say what the problem was. I guess it'll either be a bearing problem or an issue with the base metal in the cast?

    Apparently it only affects 11 UK bikes so I suppose it all depends on when yours was manufactured

    Recall

    I spoke to my dealership today and they were not aware of a recall to date. They stated that they would check with BMW Motorrad UK and if my bike was subject to a recall they would let me know.
