GS fork checks now of­fi­cial re­call

RiDE (UK) - - Rides Month In Bikes -

BMW has an­nounced a “safety re­call” of ev­ery R1200GS and R1200GS Ad­ven­ture built be­tween Novem­ber 2013 and June 2017. This re­lates to the pos­si­bil­ity that re­peated im­pacts could open a gap be­tween the fork stan­chion tubes and their top seal plugs which, in a worst-case sce­nario, could cause the forks to sep­a­rate from the bike. A to­tal of 11,185 ma­chines are af­fected in the UK (in­clud­ing RIDE’S long-ter­mer) with 169,000 glob­ally.

Own­ers of all af­fected GSS will be con­tacted and BMW deal­ers will per­form the work free of charge.
