    Thanks
    They are if you have a R1200R.

    I see the R has a lot more plumbing than the K.

    Kit for a R1200R



    Kit for a K1300S. BTW, the piece I did not replace was the Tankside discconnect.

    I wrote to BMW Canada to make sure they had all my info but according to them there is no recall on my bike...

    Thank you for contacting BMW Canada. I have update the ownership of your bike to reflect your name and all of your contact information. If there are any recalls in the future we will notify you directly. At this point there are no open recalls on your bike.
    I wrote back mentioning the Transport Canada document.
    I'm waiting for their answer.

    Here's the latest reply from BMW Canada

    Thank you again for contacting BMW Canada. All recalls are VIN specific, and there are no open recalls on your specific bike. There could be recalls on other similar year and model bikes, but that recall does not affect your VIN. If something changes and a new recall opens on your VIN, we will send you a letter.
    It looks like the recall doesn't affect every bike mentioned in the document even though the model and year is listed...

    two birds one stone. Thanks

    This will be part of the spring service on my bike. I had the BB ring installed last year, but my indie didn't have the QD's in stock.

    This is obviously a case of owner negligence and incompetence and is not caused by a manufacturing or design defect. Warranty claim denied.

    recall notice received today: April 3 (09 RT)

    in the body of the letter:
    "Description of Repair

    The fuel pump will be inspected.

    If no leaks are present, cracks in the flange are small, and the flange diameter has not exceeded a certain measurement, then a reinforcing ring will be installed on the flange neck to prevent the possibility of future leakage. After this action is completed, your fuel pump wil be equivalent to current production.

    If leaks are present, if cracks in the flange extend to the bottom of the flange, or if the flange diameter has exceeded a certain measurement, then the fuel pump will be replaced with the current production design which includes the reinforcing ring."

    Goes on to estimate repair time as up to 2 hours.

    Coming soon to a mailbox near you!

    My letter states, "Please note that at the present time we do not yet have parts to conduct this Recall; however, we will notify you via First Class mail as soon as parts become available. At that time, you should make an appointment with your authorized BMW motorcycle dealer in order to have this Recall performed on your motorcycle." Now waiting for second letter.

    Looks like it's different in Canada.
    Mine's being fixed as I'm writing while waiting in the dealer's "lounge"

    What's different? Not having to wait for parts or how the repair is handled.

    I was disappointed when I read this segment in my letter. I figured if you had any type of cracks in the flange BMW would install the updated pump.
