BMW of North America is recalling certain 2020 through 2023 S 1000 R and S 1000 XR motorcycles produced between particular dates.
S 1000 R and S 1000 XR Safety Recall Report
BMW’s Part 573 Safety Recall Report to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says up to 394 motorcycles are affected.
In the report, BMW says:
“This safety recall involves the optional milled hand brake lever, in which the specification of the lever’s fulcrum pin may not have been sufficient, could cause a reduced blowby clearance, and affect the system’s pressure regulation.”
Describing the safety risk, BMW says:
“In certain riding conditions, a reduction in brake pressure could occur, affect braking performance, lead to a longer stopping distance, and may increase the risk of a crash. ”
Description of the Remedy
BMW will notify owners by first-class mail and will be instructed to take their motorcycle to an authorized BMW dealer who will replace the hand brake lever fulcrum pin for free.
To remedy the defect, BMW will notify dealers and owners of this recall following the below notification schedule:
