    From visordown - BMW recalls R and K series bikes.

    The recall applies to R and K series motorcycles produced between November 2003 and April 2011. BMW has not said how many bikes in total are affected. Given the phenomenal sales of the R1200GS alone, we're guessing it's not a few.

    Apparently the rear wheel flange may crack as result of brake disc bolts or wheel nuts being over-tightened, BMW says.

    I'm assuming that BMW will be contacting owners.

    I just miss that by a few months :)

    Can't believe that will be as far back as the later 1150gs

    Rather worrying, what?

    And this comes after the "suspension may fail" recall of a few months ago.

    Doh, didnt see this and chucked something in General Chat. I never really venture many places other than General and Meet ups. Narrow horizons I guess!
