K67 S 1000 RR
KM3 M 1000 R

 

The affected vehicles have been marked with campaign number 0000321300 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.

 

NHTSA STATEMENT

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.

SITUATION

The affected vehicles have been built with a milled hand brake lever with part number 37 72 8103376.

This lever is installed as standard equipment for the M 1000 R’s and is part of the Billet pack with option code 079E on the S 1000 RR’s.

A dimensionally incorrect pivot pin of that hand brake lever can cause a reduction in blowby clearance. The pressure in the brake system can then be insufficient. In specific riding situations a changing pressure point in the hand brake lever can be noticed.

 

PROCEDURE

For vehicles that have not been delivered, the service campaign must be carried out before delivery to customers.

The pivot pin of the handbrake lever will be replaced according to the attached repair manual “00 60 419 Replace fulcrum pin handbrake lever.“ The new pivot pin is marked with more than one groove or furrow for a better identification when compared to the old construction stage

Note: No other repair solution will be accepted as a warranty claim.

Since February 9th, 2023, only vehicles without this fault pattern are delivered in the series.

 

PARTS INFORMATION

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 :

In November 2022, during functional checks and tests in preparation for an event, BMW became aware of two 2023 BMW M 1000 R motorcycles with unusual hand brake lever movement. The unusual movement corresponded with varying brake lever pressure. An engineering review was initiated.

Various analyses and tests were performed. A review of the engineering specifications of components of the braking system, including the hand brake lever, was conducted. Additional motorcycle models with similar design configurations were identified, including hand brake levers which were available as standard equipment, factory option, and/or aftermarket accessory.

In January 2023, the review indicated that the supplier of the hand brake lever involved in the subject recall was provided with specifications which were insufficient.

Motorcycle assembly information, supplier production records, parts supply chain and aftersales information were reviewed to determine the number and production dates of potentially affected motorcycles.

On February 16, 2023, BMW decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall.

BMW has not received any reports, nor is BMW otherwise aware, of any accidents or injuries that may be related to this issue.
