Interesting. I keep my ears open to the K bike world, but haven't seen or read anything about this. Yet BMW is not known for issuing recalls unless severely pressured. Perhaps or in spite of their own apparent unwavering insistence to include a fatal flaw in every model of every vehicle they have made for over the last 50-plus years. Customer engineering, meet the NHSTA.

Well I guess my K1300GT will be at the dealer's little shop again, on their nickel this time.

Glad to hear this. I had a failure on my 2007 KGT last fall at 80k miles. Fixed it and replaced the bike with a 2009 K1300GT so I can have this one fixed. The elbow on the old bike just cracked open.

So I looked up recall 20V-471 here: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/RCLRPT-20V471-1867.PDF

It appears that the affected population is not all of the listed bikes. Quoting from the recall notice on the NHTSA website: "Basis for recall population determination: All motorcycles that were repaired under 13V-617 with the support ring remedy and where the fuel pump was not replaced at a later date." The total potentially affected population is 16,926 of which 10% are anticipated to be subject to the latest recall.

Given this limitation, if your bike is in the "potentially affected" list, call your dealer with your VIN and they will advise whether you're covered or not. The effective date of the recall remains at October 2, 2020.
