The affected vehicles have been marked with campaign number 0000611700 in AIR.

In order to determine if a specific vehicle is affected by this campaign, it will be necessary to verify the vehicle VIN in AIR (Aftersales Information Research). Based on the response of the system, either proceed with the repair or take no further action. Please note, open campaigns or vehicle stops may not appear in DCS Warranty Vehicle Inquiry or sales systems until 24-72 hours after they are announced, therefore AIR is always the recommended method for determining open campaigns and vehicle stops.



Please be reminded that it is a violation of federal law (The Safety Act) for you to sell, lease or deliver any new motorcycle covered by this notification until the recall repair has been performed. This means that dealers may not legally deliver new motorcycles to consumers until they are fixed or use/sell replacement equipment/parts subject to this recall. Note also that substantial civil penalties apply to violations of the Safety Act. Also, you should not sell, lease or deliver any used motorcycles subject to a safety recall until the repair is completed. Please follow any special instructions that we provide to you for the return or disposition of recall parts.



The Screw (Item 2) of the screw connection to the frame is short. Under certain circumstances the screw may come loose and drop down causing a restriction in the left turn steering angle.



The short screw for attaching the horn must be replaced with a new longer screw, according to the repair operation “61 33 011 Replacing the horn”.



Obtain and confirm the part numbers for your specific vehicle by entering the chassis number in ETK which takes into account specific equipment and/or options.

Additional parts like gaskets, hardware and chemicals may be required for the complete repair.

Chronology :

On August 22, 2022, BMW became aware of an incident in Germany involving a 2022 BMW CE 04. It was reported that the steering may have become blocked, and that the rider was not able to control the motorcycle which resulted in a crash. An immediate analysis was initiated.

The analysis indicated that the steering had become blocked as a result of a horn which had become partially detached from the motorcycle. The analysis also indicated that the mounting hardware for the horn on the subject motorcycle may not have been appropriate. Further evaluations of engineering drawings and specifications determined that the mounting hardware for similarly produced models may not have been appropriate.

On September 1, 2022, BMW decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall.

BMW has not received any reports, nor is BMW otherwise aware, of any further accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
