BMW Recalls Certain 2007 Motorcycle Models for Steering Damper Problem

BMW has issued a recall of certain 2007 F800S, F800ST, K1200GT, K1200R, K1200R Sport, and R1200R motorcycles.

It is possible for the coating to separate from the inside face of the steering damper housing. If this happened, the coating could partially clog the oil bores within the damper. If this occurred, the steering damper could become stiff increasing the risk of a crash.

428 units are affected.
