BMW Recalls 2005-2007 R1200GS Adventure Motorcycles for Fuel Tank Bolt Problem

BMW is recalling certain 2005 through 2007 R1200GS Adventure motorcycles manufactured from December 7, 2005 through September 26, 2007.

The fuel tank front attachment bolts can work loose allowing the bolts to come into contact with the fork leg if the handlebar is turned a significant amount.

The number of units affected has not been announced.

Check out my Motorcycle Recalls feature for more details.

We have a K 1200 BMW with supposedly a superior brake system. It went out after 36,000 miles last year, fortunately with only my husband on a low-speed street in our development. BMW refused to pay for its replacement cost of $2,500, since it is a 2006 bike and beyond the 3-year warranty.

We will NEVER purchase another BMW bike again. They do not stand behind their products, and we will not put our lives into their hands again.
