    Recall: NHTSA and BMW recall 2007-2009 F800 S and ST for rear wheel bearing

    NHTSA and BMW 13V549


    SUMMARY:
    BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 F 800 S and F 800 ST motorcycles manufactured August 2006 through January 2009. Due to incorrect tolerances, the rear wheel drive bearing and rear axle may wear.

    CONSEQUENCE:
    Bearing and axle wear may affect handling and control of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

    REMEDY:
    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the wheel bearing, and if necessary, replace the bearing and rear axle, at no charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.

    NOTES:
    Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

    The short honest answer is I don't know for sure.

    In other recalls for BMW and other brands there have been processes for dealing with repairs made of the defective part(s). Once you receive your recall notice contact your dealer and the BMW customer service number listed in the recall.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.
