Product recall - potential oil leak
Just received notification of a product recall for my 07 GT - wording is as follows:
"....BMW Motorrad has acertained that frequent short-trip usage at ambient temperatures below zero degrees can cause water vapour to condense and freeze in the outlet port of the oil-tank breather. This, in turn, can cause the oil tank to rupture, allowing oil to make its way onto the rear wheel."
Dealer says the replacement parts (whatever they are) are on order and they will contact me when they are in. I did a search to see if this had already been mentioned on the site, but found nothing. I was wondering how widespread this recall is, and if you are already aware of this in the US, especially considering the temps in the northern half at this time of year?
