BMW of North America is recalling 9000 accessory turn signals manufactured for model year 2006-2017 R1200GS, 2007-2008 and 2010-2017 R1200GS Adventure, 2017 F700GS and F800GS, 2013-2017 F800GT, 2015-2016 F800R, 2014-2017 F800GS Adventure, 2014-2016 S1000R, 2015-2017 R1200R, 2016-2017 R1200RS, and 2010-2017 S1000RR motorcycles.
As designed, the accessory turn signals may be insufficiently visible to other drivers, and, as such, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
If other drivers cannot easily see the turn signals, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the turn signals, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 9, 2017.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
