BMW Recalls 2007 G650X Challenge and Country Motorcycles for Wheel Bearing Problem

BMW has issued a recall of certain 2007 G650X Challenge and Country motorcycles.

The motorcycles may have had the wrong circular clip installed on the left hand side of the rear wheel bearing guide. This circlip can rub against a spacer bushing, creating metal shavings which may enter the wheel bearing, causing it to fail and the ABS may malfunction although this would be indicated by illumination of the ABS warning lamp. If this happened, the brakes would remain fully available to slow and stop the motorcycle increasing the risk of a crash.

744 units are affected.
