BMW of North America is recalling 14,626 model year 2014-2017 BMW R1200GS and BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycles.

The motorcycle fixed fork tube may separate from the pressed in seal plug that secures the tube to the upper triple clamp.

If the fork tube detaches from the sealing plug, the handling and stability of the motorcycle will be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will add an additional fixed fork tube bush. A fork that is sufficiently damaged will be replaced with a modified new part. These repairs will be made free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin September 1, 2017. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
