BMW Recalls 2007-2009 K1200 and R1200 Series Motorcycles for Brake Line Problem

BMW is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2009 R1200 and K1200 series motorcycles manufactured from August 2006 through May 2009.

Due to the current routing of the front brake lines, it is possible that during riding, and therefore associated vibration, the brake lines could be under strain. If the vibration/strain is significant, the brake line could split and start to develop a leak.

15532 units are affected.

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.
