Transport Canada Recall # 2017343
Models: 2013-2017 BMW R1200GS, 2013-2017 BMW R1200GS Adventure
Number of Units Affected: 1,556
Details: On certain motorcycles, the upper fork seal plug could loosen after severe impact, such as a large pot hole or an accident. Loose fork seal plugs may not be noticeable by the rider. This could result in oil leaks, a rattling noise and unstable steering. If operated in this condition, the plugs could separate, affecting vehicle handling. These issues could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will fit an additional fixed fork bushing, or replace the forks with an improved design, as necessary.
