NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
08V241000 Fuel System, Gasoline: Delivery: Hoses, Lines/Piping, and Fittings BMW of North America, LLC 05/27/2008 1980
Defect Summary
BMW is recalling 1,980 model year 2007-2008 F800S and F800ST motorcycles. Due to the routing of the fuel tank breather hose, pressure equalization inside the fuel tank is possible only to a limited extent. Consequently, at high ambient temperatures, the fuel tank can deform. If this happened at the point where the fuel tank is shaped to provide clearance for the rear wheel, then, in combination with a large payload, the bottom of the tank could rub against the rear wheel.
Consequence Summary
If this occurred, it is possible that a leak could develop in the tank. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will reroute the fuel tank breather hose. The recall is expected to begin during June 2008. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-331-1117.
