BMW has announced that some S1000RR motorcycles will have to be fitted with a new brake lever. Models not yet delivered will receive the new part in the coming weeks and will then be shipped to customers.
Customers whose machines are affected will be contacted and will have to wait a little longer for delivery of their machines. However, 2,000 motorcycles already delivered will have to be recalled.
Recall for S1000RR owners: brake lever must be replaced
Anyone who bought a BMW S1000RR with the optional M-milled parts package that was built between September 1, 2022 and February 10, 2023 could be getting mail from BMW. A total of 2,000 motorcycles worldwide are being recalled to replace the brake lever. The recall will be implemented starting in 2023.
The reason for the recall is insufficient accuracy of the control pin of the handbrake lever. This reduces the clearance in the brake pump. This results in the necessary pressure equalization between the brake and the expansion tank being reduced or even prevented, which in turn leads to a wandering pressure point and increased lever travel. This could cause the brake to feel spongy. The bolt will be replaced free of charge as part of the recall.
However, you have to take the bike to the BMW dealer and have the part replaced. The recall will be implemented from 2023 and only affects S1000RR K67 models that were equipped with the optional M-milled parts package.
BMW has announced a recall for some S1000RRs that requires the brake lever pin to be replaced. Affected owners will be contacted by BMW and the replacement will be done free of charge. Although it can be annoying to wait for the repair, keep in mind that this is necessary to ensure safety on the road.
