BMW has issued a recall for 2006 to 2008 BMW R1200 GS motorcycles for a problem with a seal on the fuel pump control unit. Please read the details below.
Manufacturer: BMW of North America
Model Year: 2006-2008
Models affected: R1200 GS
NHTSA Campaign Number: 09V319000
Problem: BMW is recalling certain model year 2006 through 2008 R1200 GS motorcycles manufactured between August 2006 and January 2008. The sealing of the fuel pump control unit housing might be insufficient and water could intrude into the control unit housing creating a humid atmosphere. Under such conditions, the fuel pump could corrode and then fail. Failure of the fuel pump will cause inadequate fuel to reach the engine and cause the engine to stop running. A loss of engine power without warning could increase the risk of a crash.
Corrective Action: The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a remedy or notification schedule. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.
