The Dealers were notified on May 24, 2006. If they don't know about this recall, then they have not checked their Dealer Net account yet.

I expect that dealers have received the announcement, but have not yet received the parts. Check with your dealer to find out:

1. If your bike is effected
2. If the parts are available
3. Schedule your bike for the repair

Thanks for this

Thanks for this vital information. I wonder if BMW will fix all these bikes worldwide, not just in the USA.

Keep a high visual horizon,
Bob

BMW has already started in most other countries. The US is the ones who are late to the game. Some 90,000 motorcycles are affected by this recall -- 30,000 in the US.

Recalls

I was at the dealer today to get the 600 mile insp. done on the GS. The service mngr. ran the vin on my S while I waited. There are 3 open campaigns on it. :wtf The brake thing, the ABS cable thing, and the valve adjustment software update. Parts aren't yet available for the brakes. My 6k service will be due soon. I figure to wait to have it all done at the same time.

Recall thread correction

El Jeffe,

You have gotten two different recalls mixed together. The reason I mention this is you have model year 2005 - 2006 R1200RTs being covered by this recall when in fact they are not. Recall 06V164000 is to insatll a "BANJO BOLT WITH A FLOW RESTRICTOR" in the brake line and cover R1200RTs with build date of Sep 2005 to Dec 2005. The VIN ranges you list include my RT which was built in Feb 2005. My RT is not part of this recall. However, my RT is part of recall 06V134000 which "DEALERS WILL ATTACH ADDITIONAL RETAINING CLIPS FREE OF CHARGE TO THE ABS SENSOR CABLE". This is the issue where the sensor cable can rub against the brake disk. The FYI to everyone is that there TWO different ABS recalls affecting different build dates. In the case of the R1200RT you list the VIN range which is associated with 06V134000 but said these ranges were associated with 06V134000.

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 06V134000 Recall Date : APR 14, 2006
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 9260
Summary:
ON CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES, IF CERTAIN PROCEDURES ARE PERFORMED THAT INVOLVES REMOVAL OF THE FRONT LEFT BRAKE CALIPER, THE ABS SENSOR CABLE CAN BE ROUTED INCORRECTLY AND WHEN THE CALIPER IS REINSTALLED, THE SENSOR CABLE CAN COME INTO CONTACT AND RUB AGAINST THE FRONT BRAKE DISC. OVERTIME, IF THE CHAFING BECOMES SEVERE, IT IS POSSIBLE TO LOSE THE ABS FUNCTION.

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 06V164000 Mfg's Report Date : MAY 12, 2006
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 13200
Summary:
ON CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES, UNDER RAPID, REPEATED, AND UNUSUALLY HARSH BRAKING, LOSS OF ABS CAPABILITY COULD TEMPORARILY OCCUR.

Yes, there are two recalls, but they are not mixed together here. The posting I have made here is for 06V164000. It includes the S and the R, as well as the RT, GS, and ST.

The other recall is for the ABS sensor cable routing, which is 06V134000 and only effects R1200RT, ST, and GS bikes.

Here is the effectivity for BOTH recalls:

The following lists the bikes effected by the ABS Banjo Bolt Recall (NHTSA Recall ID: 06V164000)

K1200S: ZM25000-ZM27931
K1200R (plus restrictor and brake discs): ZN55000-ZN56217
R1200GS: ZL75000-ZL79999 and ZR40000-ZR40195
R1200RT: ZM15000-ZM18267
R1200ST: ZM30000-ZM30582

NHTSA Document: RCRIT-06V164-0000.pdf

The following lists the bikes effected by the ABS Sensor Wire Recall (NHTSA Recall ID: 06V134000)

R1200GS: ZL75000-ZL79999 and ZR40000-ZR40415
R1200RT: ZM15000-ZM18267
R1200ST: ZM30000-ZM30582

NHTSA Document: RCRIT-06V134-0000.pdf

Also, in order to determine if a specific motorcycle is affected by this Recall Campaign, it will be necessary to verify all motorcycle VINs through a DCS Vehicle History Check. Based on the response of the system, either proceed with the repair or take no further action. The VIN Ranges listed above are only for informational purposes and are not to be considered a deciding factor.
