K1200GT Brake Recall (Also effects K1200S and K1200R)

From the bulletin:

Due to an error in the assembly process of the silver-colored wheel carriers of the K1200 S / R / GT models, the front wheel-speed sensor cable might have suffered damage. In order to ensure that the ABS remains fully functional underall circumstances, the front wheel-speed sensor of each of the motorcycles in question will have to be replaced. This problem affects K1200 S / R / GT models with silver-colored wheel carriers manufactured in the period of June - July 2006. Motorcycles with black wheel carriers are not affected.



The error in the assembly process has been corrected.

Solution: The front wheel-speed sensor of each of the motorcycles affected must be replaced. VIN range: ZN45660 - ZN45670

In order to determine if a specific motorcycle is affected by this Technical 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.

Since the term "Wheel Carrier" is somewhat vague could you please include a picture of the part that should be black or Grey? Is it the hub, the fork, axle shaft ???

Thanks in advance

Looks to be the lower fork leg, IMO.

I'm no expert, but I found this in an article about the K1200S

Another of the technical highlights is the suspension and chassis which employ a new "Duolever" design and electronically adjustable suspension. The Duolever, seen from a kinematic point of view, resembles a link square made up of two virtually parallel longitudinal links, mounted in the frame so they can swivel and thus permit a precise up-and-down movement of the front wheel. This is mounted in an extremely rigid component, the so-called wheel carrier.

The wheel carrier, a light component cast from high strength aluminium alloy, is connected to the longitudinal links via two ball joints and can thus steer at the same time. A longitudinal link connected to the central spring strut is responsible for suspension and damping. The benefits of this system are extremely high rigidity combined with low weight and an ideal wheel and lift curve. The Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA) will be available as an option and enables suspension spring preload and damping to be adjusted electronically from the handlebars.
