BMW Motorrad makes some of the best motorcycles out there. BMW’s motorcycles perform well under all conditions and the cycle parts used in these motorcycles are made of high-quality materials. However, some parts can sometimes turn out to be problematic.

In this case, a faulty part of the fuel pump used in quite a few BMW Motorrad models has turned out to be faulty. BMW has hence issued a recall for nearly 21,000 motorcycles. The models affected by the recall include the S 1000 RR HP4, S 1000 RR, S 1000 RR, R 1200 GS, R 1200 GS Adventure, R 1200 R,  R 1200 RT, R nineT, K 1300 S, K 1600 GT, and K 1600 GTL.

Most of the recalled models were sold between 2011 and 2014, and out of warranty, which shows the extent to which BMW is willing to go, in order to take good care of its customers. The problem with these motorcycles is that the flange in the fuel pump could crack.

Over time, the crack could expand and lead to fuel leaking which could be disastrous. BMW dealerships will contact the owners of the affected motorcycles and fix the replace the fuel pump free of cost.
