09V499000 Engine and Engine Cooling BMW of North America, LLC 12/17/2009 4498
Defect Summary
BMW is recalling certain model year 2008, 2009, and 2010 F650 GS and F800 GS motorcycles manufactured between January 2008 and December 2009. During engine operation, a vacuum is created in order to draw fresh air into the canister. This air then mixes with the fuel vapors captured by the canister, and is subsequently combusted. Due to the routing of the ventilation hose, water near the end of the hose could be drawn into the charcoal canister.
Consequence Summary
Water could flow into the canister causing a stalling condition increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will inspect and add an additional hose and route it such that the present defect is prevented. This remedy will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2010. Owners may contact BMW at 1-201-307-4000.
