2010 BMW Recall : G650 XCountry/XChallenge/XMoto

Postby johnnyboxer » Thu Jun 24, 2010 5:26 pm

A BMW recall has been announced 21/6/2010 for all G650 Models

2-3 items need to be done (in addition to what is written below) and either call your dealer/await notification

I picked this up in the USA, this morning and here's the stuff

BMW is recalling certain ’08-’09 F 650 GS and F 800 GS models manufactured from Sept. 27, 2007, through March 30, 2009.
The company is also recalling ’07-’08 G 650 Xcountry, Xchallenge and Xmoto models manufacturered from Nov. 29, 2006, through May 19, 2008.
The drive chains of the F650 GS and F800 GS may not have been produced to specification. As a result, over time the chain could break. If the broken chain becomes trapped between the rear wheel and the frame, the rear wheel could lock up.
Regarding the G 650 models, over time the roll gear pin’s mounting attachment could break. If it does, fragments of the attachment could become trapped between the drive chain and the rear sprocket, possibly causing the rear wheel to lock up.

BMW has not yet provided NHTSA with a remedy plan or a notification schedule.

The NHTSA campaign ID numbers are 10V273000 for the G 650 models and 10V274000 for the F 650 and F800.

A phone call to Rainbow BMW, this morning confirmed its authenticity and that, new special tools have been ordered by most UK dealers and the modified parts will be available now or very soon

Thanks for this johnny - my G650 XCountry is now safe in the hands of my local dealer awaiting the mods while I'm away on holiday - after which I'll be doing some hard riding so it's more than reassuring to know that the bike is going to be tip top! :cheers:
