BMW F650 GS Recalled

Bayerische Motoren Werke

Models: BMW F650 GS Year: 2001

Number Involved: 1,183

Dates of Manufacture: March - December 2000

Defect: On these motorcycles, under certain riding conditions when the rear brake and the throttle are applied simultaneously, the rear brake caliper support could bend, leading to contact between the brake hose connecting piece on the rear caliper and the swing arm. Brake fluid leakage from the caliper could occur, resulting in loss of rear braking capability.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the rear brake caliper support and, if it is bent, will replace the swing arm, together with the caliper and brake hose, if necessary. If the support is not bent, it will be reinforced with a plastic block. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during March 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
