    Recall Details

    On certain motorcycles, the threaded plugs which secures the front fork tubes to the upper triple clamp may loosen over time. This could allow a fork tube to detach, which could result in a sudden loss of steering control and a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will crimp-lock the fork tube threaded plugs.

    Interesting. Three recalls and most of the bikes have not yet reached the consumer. That has to be approaching a record for BMW.
