BMW has issued a recall for some 2005-2006 BMW HP2 Enduro motorcycles for a problem with a fastener on the rear suspension. Please read the details below.
Manufacturer: BMW of North America
Model Year: 2005-2006
Models affected: HP2 Enduro
NHTSA Campaign Number: 08V564000
Potential Units Affected: 365
Problem: BMW is recalling 365 model year 2005-2006 HP2 Enduro motorcycles. The front threaded fastener of the paralever link may not have been tightened to correct specifications. If the fastener was not tightened according to specifications, it could loosen. Over time, it is possible for the fastener to separate from its housing. If this were to occur, then the final drive of the motorcycle would not be properly supported. If that happened, motorcycle handling would be compromised increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Action: Dealers will remove the front threaded fastener of the paralever link and replace it with an improved fastener. The recall is expected to begin during October 2008. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
