09V256000 Service Brakes, Hydraulic BMW of North America, LLC 07/01/2009 N/A
Defect Summary
BMW is recalling model year 2007-2009 R1200RT motorcycles. Due to routing and assembly tolerances of the front brake lines, it is possible for the lines to be under strain. In combination with vibration during riding, the brake lines could develop a leak. The level of fluid in the front brake fluid reservoir could drop rendering the front brakes inoperative.
Consequence Summary
In the event that only the rear brakes were operational, severe loss of control during hard braking could result. This could result in a serious crash.
Corrective Summary
The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a remedy or notification schedule. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
