    Interesting that you'd still get the notice. I had mine done in January, as soon as the dealer got the new software. I wonder if I'll get a notice as well...

    Mine arrived Thursday the 25th. Hope to schedule a time soon, maybe a drop off and pick up a week later since it still seems to be monsoon season.

    Switch Recall notice

    Just got mine, (got my remap done two weeks ago and they replaced the left switchgear at the time as it was indeed malfuntioning - no ESA and no signals, all is better now):

    April 2010
    Recall Campaign No. 09V-384, K1300S/GT
    "The problem involves the switches on the handlebars for both the direction indicator and the emergency engine-off/engine-start functions. Due to environmental factors such as large changes in temperature and humidity, combined with the electronic material used for the switches, micro-cracks could develop in this material. If this occurred, the switches may not function properly. In some cases, engine stalling could result."

    Stopped at the dealer yesterday. Left side was already replaced with the updated switch gear, part number ending in 25. Right side is not updated, does not end in 25, new right side on order from BMW AG.
    To check part number, peel back rubber of hand grip on the left side - upper half - should be visible on the vertical part of the switchgear. Right side, remove the throttle cover and use a small flashlight and look at the vertical face.

    I had my left and right switch changed but didn't solve the stalling problem.
    I requested the software upgrade.
    Let's see what happens.
