BMW is recalling 2,385 certain model year 2012-2013 S 1000 RR motorcycles manufactured September 2011, through December 2012 due to a manufacturing fault. The side-stand attachment bolts could start to loosen which could cause the stand to separate from the frame of the motorcycle and cause the motorcycle to fall, causing a risk of injury. BMW will notify owners, and dealers will clean the sidestand mounting plate threads and replace the side-stand mounting plate bolts, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in January 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com. 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. NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V585000.
