    1998 BMW K1200RS
    NHTSA Campaign ID:SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:03/01/1997 - 08/30/1997
    Potential Units Affected:973

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTORCYCLES. THE ADJUSTING SCREW FOR THE PRESSURE POINT OF EITHER THE BRAKE OR CLUTCH LEVERS MAY NOT BE SUFFICIENTLY TIGHT, DUE TO GREASE CONTAMINATION OF THE THREADS.

    Consequence:

    THE SCREW(S) CAN BACK OUT OVER TIME WHILE THE VEHICLE IS BEING OPERATED CAUSING A CHANGE IN THE PRESSURE POINT OF THE MASTER CYLINDER FOR THE CLUTCH AND/OR FRONT BRAKE INCREASING THE RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL CHECK THE ADJUSTMENT SCREWS OF THE FRONT BRAKE AND CLUTCH LEVERS FOR MOVEMENT. IF THE SCREWS ARE TIGHT, NO FURTHER ACTION WILL BE TAKEN. IF A SCREW IS FOUND TO BE LOOSE, IT WILL BE REMOVED, CLEANED AND REINSTALLED WITH NEW LOCTITE.
    1998 BMW K1200RS
    NHTSA Campaign ID:FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:01/01/1997 - 10/31/1997
    Potential Units Affected:1000

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTORCYCLES. DURING EXTENDED OPERATION IN HIGH AMBIENT TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS, THE AREA OF THE PUMP MOUNTING SURFACE OF THE FUEL TANK CAN DEFORM, FORMING A GAP BETWEEN THE TANK MOUNTING SURFACE AND THE GASKET, ALLOWING FUEL TO ESCAPE FROM THE TANK AT THAT AREA.

    Consequence:

    IF AN IGNITION SOURCE WAS PRESENT, A FIRE COULD OCCUR RESULTING IN PERSONAL INJURY.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP-TO-TANK GASKET.
    1998 BMW K1200RS
    NHTSA Campaign ID:ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:03/20/1997 - 04/14/1997
    Potential Units Affected:188

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTORCYCLES. THE CYLINDER HEAD CONTAINS TWO SEALING PLUGS COVERING HOLES IN THE AREA NEAR THE SPARK PLUGS. ONE OR BOTH PLUGS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN FULLY SEATED DURING VEHICLE ASSEMBLY. EITHER OR BOTH OF THE SEALING PLUGS COULD LOOSEN OR COMPLETELY DETACH FROM THEIR MOUNTING POINT DURING VEHICLE OPERATION.

    Consequence:

    THIS CONDITION COULD ALLOW COOLANT TO ESCAPE, TRAVEL ALONG THE ENGINE COVER, AND CONTACT THE REAR TIRE, REDUCING ITS TRACTION AND AFFECTING THE STABILITY OF THE MOTORCYCLE. IN ADDITION, THE LOSS OF COOLANT COULD LEAD TO INCREASED ENGINE OPERATING TEMPERATURE AND POSSIBLE OVERHEATING.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE SEALING PLUGS WITH A STAINLESS STEEL PLUG DESIGN.
    1998 BMW K1200RS
    NHTSA Campaign ID:ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:02/01/1997 - 08/31/1999
    Potential Units Affected:2368

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTORCYCLES. A SPRING-LOADED THERMOSTATIC ELEMENT IN THE OIL THERMOSTAT HOUSING IS HELD IN PLACE BY A COVER THAT IS RETAINED BY A SNAP RING. THE SNAP RING MAY NOT HAVE BEEN PROPERLY INSTALLED DURING PRODUCTION. DURING VEHICLE OPERATION, THE SNAP RING COULD UNSEAT, ALLOWING THE COVER TO LOOSEN OR DETACH, RESULTING IN LOSS OF THE ENTIRE OIL VOLUME.

    Consequence:

    ENGINE DAMAGE COULD OCCUR IF THE ENGINE IS NOT IMMEDIATELY SWITCHED OFF. IN ADDITION, OIL COULD TRAVEL ALONG THE ENGINE COVER AND ULTIMATELY CONTACT THE REAR TIRE, REDUCING ITS TRACTION AND AFFECTING THE STABILITY OF THE MOTORCYCLE, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN A CRASH AND PERSONAL INJURY.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE SNAP RING INSTALLATION AND IF THE SNAP RING IS NOT FULLY SEATED, THE COMPLETE OIL PUMP INTERMEDIATE FLANGE WILL BE REPLACED.
    1998 BMW M3
    NHTSA Campaign ID:AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:03/01/1997 - 08/31/1999
    Potential Units Affected:16749

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. THESE VEHICLES ARE BUILT WITH A SIDE AIR BAG SYSTEM CONSISTING OF DOOR-MOUNTED THORAX AIR BAGS (REAR DOOR AIR BAGS ARE OPTIONAL), A CENTRAL ELECTRONIC SENSOR AND DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM, LEFT AND RIGHT SATELLITE IMPACT SENSORS, AND ASSOCIATED WIRING. THIS SYSTEM IS UNDULY SENSITIVE TO CERTAIN NON-CRASH IMPACTS, SUCH AS CONTACTING LARGE POTHOLES OR CURBS AT SUBSTANTIAL SPEED.

    Consequence:

    THIS COULD CAUSE THE SIDE AIR BAG TO DEPLOY WITHOUT AN ACTUAL SIDE CRASH. IN ADDITION, THE BATTERY SAFETY TERMINAL (BST) COULD ALSO ACTIVATE, DISCONNECTING THE STARTER CABLE FROM THE BATTERY. IN THIS CASE, THE VEHICLE'S ELECTRICAL SYSTEM COULD CONTINUE TO OPERATE AND THE ENGINE WOULD CONTINUE TO RUN, BUT AFTER STOPPING, COULD NOT BE RESTARTED.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE CENTRAL COMPUTER CONTROL MODULE THAT REGULATES THE PERFORMANCE OF ALL OF THE VEHICLE'S OCCUPANT PROTECTION SYSTEMS.
    1998 BMW R1100RT-P
    NHTSA Campaign ID:TIRES:SIDEWALL
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:10/01/1997 - 12/31/2000
    Potential Units Affected:990

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: POLICE MOTORCYCLES EQUIPPED WITH DUNLOP SPORTMAX A REAR TIRES, SIZE 160/60 ZR18. THESE TIRES MAY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED ON SOME OF THE VEHICLES AS REPLACEMENT EQUIPMENT. THE CAMPAIGN IS LIMITED TO THOSE SPORTMAX A REAR TIRES HAVING DATE STAMPS OF 189, 199, OR 209. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT AREAS OF REDUCED ADHESION ON THE TREAD REINFORCING CUSHION STRIPS MAY HAVE RESULTED DURING PRODUCTION OF THE TIRES. THIS COULD LEAD TO LOCALIZED SEPARATIONS AND BLISTERS WHERE THE TREAD JOINS THE SIDEWALL.

    Consequence:

    IF THIS PROBLEM OCCURS, THE RIDER MAY NOTICE A VIBRATION OF THE REAR TIRE AND DEPENDING ON THE DEGREE OF BLISTERING, VEHICLE HANDLING COULD ALSO BE AFFECTED. CONTINUED OPERATION OF THE VEHICLE COULD LEAD TO FURTHER WEAKENING OF THE SIDEWALL AREA AND CAUSE A FURTHER DETERIORATION OF THE VEHICLE'S HANDLING.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE REAR TIRE FOR THE PRODUCTION DATE. IF AN AFFECTED TIRE IS FOUND, IT WILL BE REPLACED. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN JUNE 28, 2001. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT BMW AT 1-800-831-1117, OPTION #4.
    1998 BMW R1200C
    NHTSA Campaign ID:STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:06/01/1997 - 06/30/1998
    Potential Units Affected:3342

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTORCYCLES EQUIPPED WITH CHROME-PLATED FRAMES. COPPER RESIDUE CAN REMAIN IN THE TAPPED HOLE WHERE THE UPPER FORK BRIDGE ATTACHES TO THE FRAME. MOISTURE CAN CAUSE CORROSION TO OCCUR BETWEEN THE COPPER RESIDUE AND THE ALUMINUM FRAME. THE STRESS OF THE CONNECTING BOLT ATTACHING THE UPPER FORK TO THE FRAME COULD THEN DECREASE, LEADING TO LOOSENING, AND ULTIMATELY, BREAKAGE OF THE BOLT.

    Consequence:

    IF THIS HAPPENED, THE DYNAMIC STABILITY OF THE MOTORCYCLE WOULD BE AFFECTED AND A LOSS OF CONTROL COULD OCCUR.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL REAM THE HOLE IN THE FRAME HEAD AND INSTALL A HELICOIL THREAD INSERT AND A NEW BOLT. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN DECEMBER 13, 2001. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT BMW AT 1-800-831-1117, OPTION #4.
    1998 BMW R1200C
    NHTSA Campaign ID:SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC
    Manufacturer:BAYERISCHE MOTOREN WERKE
    Manufacture Dates:05/01/1997 - 08/30/1997
    Potential Units Affected:973

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: MOTORCYCLES. THE ADJUSTING SCREW FOR THE PRESSURE POINT OF EITHER THE BRAKE OR CLUTCH LEVERS MAY NOT BE SUFFICIENTLY TIGHT, DUE TO GREASE CONTAMINATION OF THE THREADS.

    Consequence:

    THE SCREW(S) CAN BACK OUT OVER TIME WHILE THE VEHICLE IS BEING OPERATED CAUSING A CHANGE IN THE PRESSURE POINT OF THE MASTER CYLINDER FOR THE CLUTCH AND/OR FRONT BRAKE INCREASING THE RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL CHECK THE ADJUSTMENT SCREWS OF THE FRONT BRAKE AND CLUTCH LEVERS FOR MOVEMENT. IF THE SCREWS ARE TIGHT, NO FURTHER ACTION WILL BE TAKEN. IF A SCREW IS FOUND TO BE LOOSE, IT WILL BE REMOVED, CLEANED AND REINSTALLED WITH NEW LOCTITE.
