Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Motorcycles are subject to this recall:

  • BMW F 800 S (K71, 0216/0226) and F 800 ST (K71, 0234/0244) Motorcycles, CPA number: 35646 F800

According to the ACCC, due to incorrect tolerances in the driveline, corrosion may occur between the inner bearing race of the needle roller bearing and the bearing seat of the input shaft, possibly compromising the bearing sealing ring. Due to increased wear, this may lead to excessive play at the rear wheel. In turn, increased play at the rear wheel could reduce the rider’s ability to control the Motorcycle, particularly while cornering or braking. Aggravated wear of the bearing could also cause premature and sudden bearing failure, possibly resulting in loss of control.
