Defect Summary
BMW is recalling 365 model year 2005-2006 HP2 Enduro motorcycles. The front threaded fastener of the Paralever link may not have been tightened to correct specifications.

If this were to occur, then the final drive of the motorcycle would not be properly supported.
Consequence Summary
If that happened, motorcycle handling would be compromised increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will remove the front threaded fastener of the Paralever link and replace it with an improved fastener. The recall is expected to begin during October 2008. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
