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. ”

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:

  • Planned Owner Notification Date: April 18, 2023
