The front brake calipers may leak fluid

BMW of North America (BMW) is recalling 9,393 model year 2019-2020 R 1250 GS, GS Adventure & R 1250 RT, and model year 2020 S 1000 RR & S 1000 XR motorcycles.

The front brake calipers may leak brake fluid when parked.

Over time, a leak can reduce the amount of brake fluid in the reservoir. Low volume could affect brake performance, increasing the risk of crash.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and -- if necessary -- replace the front brake calipers with an improved version free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin October 6, 2020.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
