What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your motorcycle, you should make contact with a BMW dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer.

Manufacturers offer an unlimited time for those repairs, meaning that second or third owners can still get a recalled motorcycle fixed at no charge.
