BMW Recall (#2010376)
Models Involved: 2008 – 2010 F650GS
Number of Vehicles: 641
Problem: On certain motorcycles, the length of one or more of the front brake disc fasteners may be insufficient. If the length of a fastener was insufficient, this could result in the fastener not being tightened according to specifications. If this happened, the fastener could work loose from its threads or cause the screws to shear off and the brake disc will then rotate loosely between the hub and fork. Failure to have the motorcycle inspected and repaired, in conjunction with traffic, road conditions, and the rider’s reactions, will increase the risk of a crash.
Correction: Dealers will replace the affected fasteners.
Models Involved: 2009 – 2010 Vulcan 1700 Voyager and Voyager ABS, Vulcan Classic, Vulcan Classic LT, and Vulcan Nomad
Number of Vehicles: 1,186
