NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
08V111000 Suspension: Front: Wheel Bearing BMW of North America, LLC 02/27/2008 744
Defect Summary
BMW is recalling 744 model year 2007 G650X Challenger and Country motorcycles. The motorcycles may have had the wrong circular clip installed on the left hand side of the rear wheel bearing guide. This circlip can rub against a spacer bushing, creating metal shavings which may enter the wheel bearing, causing it to fail and the ABS may malfunction although this would be indicated by illumination of the ABS warning lamp.
Consequence Summary
If this happened, the brakes would remain fully available to slow and stop the motorcycle increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will check and have a correct circlip installed, along with a new spacer bushing, wheel bearings, and shaft sealing rings free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during March 2008. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
