BMW recalls 2008, 2009 GS motorcycles

January 6, 2009

BMW has issued a voluntary recall of its 2008 F650 GS and the 2009 F800 GS.

The tightening of the chain sprocket fasteners may have resulted in various levels of torque being applied, the company said. It is possible for the fasteners to work loose from the sprocket, increasing the risk of a crash. BMW says roughly 500 motorcycles are affected by the recall.

Dealers will loosen and inspect the fasteners and replace any that have been damaged when the recall begins this month.

For more information on the recall, contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888/327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov.
