    2009 K1300GT - Safety Recall - 20V-471: Fuel Pump

    I recently received a safety recall notification from BMW which reads in part:
    ..."BMW AG has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain Model year 2005-2011 BMW R1200, K1200/1300/1600, S1000RR and HP2 motorcycles. Our records indicate that you are the owner of a potentially affected motorcycle."
    ..."We are informing you of a safety recall on your motorcycle although we are not able to perform the remedy at this time. We will notify you with a follow-up letter as soon as the remedy is available."
    ..." Motorcycles which had the fuel pump repaired (but not replaced) during safety recall 13V-617 with a support ring attached to the fuel pump flange could, over time, experience a fuel leak. A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, could lead to a fire."
    Reference: www.bmwmotorcycles.com/recall

    Well, I don't know if my MC had the recall 13V-617 performed, as I am not the original owner. I don't smell any fuel, so I guess I'm OK until I can have this checked out after the remedy is available.
    FYI...

    As expected, my letter arrived yesterday. Same story, no fix yet but they'll let me know when there is and don't ride it if there's fuel leaking. Not that the bike will be leaving the warm garage anyway until probably April.

    My wife received the recall for the 2011 K1300S she used to own.
    I have not received the recall for the one I owned.
    Both biked had the earlier recall done where they pressed a metal sleeve over the fuel pump flange.

    Anyone can check for a recall on the NHTSA website. Get your 17-digit VIN ready then look here: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls

    BMW has its own website for probably the same information: https://nhtsa.bmwgroup.com/safetyrec...llSearch.xhtml

    I've tried to keep up with the various recalls, but sometimes things slip by. I've been adding to this thread:
