BMW Recalls 2008 R1200GS, R1200GS Adventure, and R1200R for Transmission Defect

BMW has issued a recall of certain 2008 R1200GS, R1200GS Adventure, and R1200R motorcycles.

Due to a material defect in the intermediate shaft of the transmission, the shaft could break. If this occurred, it is possible for the transmission to seize. If this happened, lock-up of the rear tire could occur. It is also possible for the transmission housing to break.

46 units are affected.
