BMW to Recall '09 F800 GS Motorcycles

March 31, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- BMW of North America is recalling MY 2009 F800 GS motorcycles because the axle shaft wall thickness may not have been manufactured according to specifications. 

If the wall thickness was not sufficient, the axle shaft could deform and break, increasing the risk of a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. 

Dealers will inspect the axle shaft assembly and replace or repair the necessary components free of charge. 

Motorcycle owners can reach BMW at (800) 831-1117.
