BMW of North America is recalling 1,792 model year 2014-2015 R nine T motorcycles manufactured November 27, 2013, through January 26, 2015.
The design of the rear turn signals may partially obscure the lights from being seen by the driver of a following vehicle and increase the risk of a crash.
As such, these motorcycles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
What to do
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear turn signals with ones that have longer arms, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on October 21, 2016.
Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
