    Recall, we don't need no stinkin' recall

    I thought it was an evil joke.
    I thought it was a mistake.
    But no, the recall notice in the mail looks valid. (Our dealership is closed on Mondays so I can't get the poop until tomorrow.)
    2003 and 2004 R models, especially the twin sparkers. It involves wiring for the oxygen sensor and the lead for the right hand secondary spark.
    Oh well, it's time for my 6k check up anyway.

    I think someone else was talking about that here. Terrien maybe? I think Alex Global Rider had some info on it.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    I believe the gist of that recall is to separate the wires to avoid interverence with the electronics, nbd

    Question Recall

    Has anyone encountered a problem so far? I'm wondering if I should just wait until my next service call...about 3K from now. Any advise?

    Anyone had it done yet? Could you tell any difference afterwards?

    Welcome to the ADV rider board,

    I'm not going to worry to much about it. Next time I bring it in for service I'll have them check it out.

    So far I have not felt or noticed any problems at all so I will wait till the 12 K service to have the wiring checked out.
    Maybe my bike isn't affected at all
    My bike may have been built after BMW found a problem
    Who knows
