BMW Recall 10V276000

NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
10V276000 Service Brakes, Hydraulic BMW of North America, LLC 06/15/2010 15532
Defect Summary
BMW is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2009 R1200 and K1200 series motorcycles manufactured from August 2006 through May 2009. Due to the current routing of the front brake lines, it is possible that during riding, and therefore associated vibration, the brake lines could be under strain. If the vibration/strain is significant, the brake line could split and start to develop a leak.
Consequence Summary
If this goes unnoticed, and the brake fluid reservoir runs empty, the front brakes could fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
BMW will notify owners and dealers will install new brake lines, containing a “sleeve” along a portion of the lines free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during July 2010. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417.
