    Exclamation Recall Intake hose

    While having the 600 Mile service done today (2009 F650 Twin) the dealer informed me that BMW has an unpublished recall on the intake coolent hose. Apparently the original is too short and has a tendency to come off spraying the rider with scalding coolent. I don't know if this applies to the F800 but for those that have the 650 twin get this repair ASAP (covered under warranty)

    Exclamation

    A little more info on the recall: In addition to replacing the coolent intake hose where the hose connects is also sanded down. apparently there is a chemical reaction between the plastic connection points and the coolent that can cause the hose to slip off.
