    Recall: NHTSA and BMW 2013 R 1200GS NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V211000

    NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V211000

    SUMMARY:
    BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2013 R 1200 GS motorcycles manufactured November 2012 through August 2013. Pressure inside the transmission may cause the transmission output seal to be pushed out of place.
    CONSEQUENCE:
    If the output seal ring is pushed out of its proper position, oil may leak from the transmission onto the rear tire, increasing the risk of a crash.
    REMEDY:
    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will fit a bracket to prevent the transmission seal from being pushed out of position, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2014. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
    NOTES:
    Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
