BMW Recalls 2008 K1200GT and K1200S Models for Oil System Problem

BMW has issued a recall of certain 2008 K1200GT and K1200S motorcycles.

A set screw may not have been installed at its specific location within the oil duct. Consequently, an adequate supply of oil may not circulate within the engine. It is possible that connecting rod and crankshaft damage could occur. If this happened, the engine could seize. If the motorcycle was in gear, engine seizing could result in lock-up of the rear tire, increasing the risk of a crash.

39 units are affected.
