BMW Has Recalled the 2003 F650cs Motorcycle
BMW Has Recalled the 2003 F650cs
Motorcycle because the wheel may develop a crack.
Number of Units Affected: 265
Manufactured: 01/2002 - 05/2002
ON CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES, DUE TO A MANUFACTURING DEFECT, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT
THE WHEEL COULD DEVELOP A CRACK. OVER TIME, THE CRACK COULD WORSEN TO THE
POINT THAT THE WHEEL FAILED AND THE DRIVE BELT DERAILED.
THIS WOULD RESULT IN A LOSS OF DRIVE CAPABILITY AT THE REAR WHEEL,
INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE REAR DRIVE BELT WHEEL. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS
EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING AUGUST 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN
AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE
REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT BMW AT 1-800-831-1117, OPTION
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 02V190000.
Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list
auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
