BMW Recalls F650 GS and F650 GS Dakar for Sidestand Problem

BMW has issued a recall of certain 2006-2007 F650 GS and F650 GS Dakar motorcycles.

On certain motorcycles, the weld between the side stand and the frame bottom section was not positioned properly. The load-bearing capability of the side stand is affected. As a result, the side stand could fail.

If this occurred when the motorcycle was parked, the motorcycle could fall to the ground and injure a person sitting on the motorcycle or a person nearby.

305 units are affected.
