NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
06V486000 Tires: Valve BMW of North America, LLC 12/08/2006 144
Defect Summary
On certain motorcycles, the tire inflation valve hole in the rim of the cross-spoke wheel which is equipped with the optional tire pressure monitoring system (TPM) was incorrectly manufactured. A leak may develop at this location possibly causing sudden deflation of the tire.
Consequence Summary
If this happened, motorcycle handling and control would be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will temporarily deactivate the TPM system, remove the corresponding valves and integral TPM sensors, and then replace them with standard valves. When a permanent repair is available, owners will be notified to bring their vehicles in for reactivation of the TPM system and replacement of the integral TPM sensors and valves. The recall is expected to begin during late December 2006 or early January 2007. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-331-1117.
