Haven't seen that one before on the steering dampener's internal coating coming off and plugging it up.

Wonder why the '07s have so many bugs? I would have expected that on the first generation run of 06. :confused:

If a limited number of bikes are affected, how can we tell which ones, other than waiting to see if a letter arrives from BMWNA?

(...and if you don't receive a letter, wondering whether it means that your bike isn't affected, the letter got lost in the mail, or BMWNA made a mistake...)

Not sold it yet ... but that's just a matter of time. I'll be listing it soon. Very soon.

Hazard - Thank you very much!

Unfortunately, my GT has a build date of "April 2007". The recall says 2 April 2007 - 12 May 2007. Since 1 April 2007 was a Sunday, I assume that the recall applies to my motorcycle. Dang!

Just under 26K. I haven't ridden too much this year due to many other factors (obligations and/or hobbies). She still runs like new though, and looks like it too.

I'm glad this recall doesn't affect me. ;)

tall me . what is the 428 , is this part of the vin #
No, it's the total number of bikes that have the problem. Only 428 bikes (not all of them KGTs) are being recalled -- it's not a universal recall.
