The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a recall notice for certain 2012-2013 model year BMW S1000RR
motorcycles due to a possible issue with side-stand attachment bolts. There are potentially 2,385 units affected in the recall.
The bikes, manufactured from September 2011 through December 2012, may have side-stand attachment bolts that could start to loosen, leading to the risk of the stand separating from the frame of the motorcycle and causing the bike to fall.
BMW will notify owners of affected models and dealers will “clean the side-stand mounting plate threads and replace the side-stand mounting plate bolts, free of charge,” according to the NHTSA report. Owners can contact BMW direct by phone at 1-800-525-7417 or by email at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com
