BMW Recalls 2008 R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure for Electrical System Problem

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

In certain situations, such as high generator speeds combined with large demands for electrical current, spurious signals could emerge within the motorcycle's electrical system. If this were to occur, it could affect the pressure sensor signals of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) control unit. If this happened, the ABS could switch off; However, in such a situation, a warning lamp would illuminate. Normal braking would still be available to slow and stop the motorcycle.

BMW has not announced the number of units in the recall.
