2006 Gs 1200 bmw Motorcycles,lt Models Also. Motorcycles Have Seals That Are Failing On Final Drive (rear End Of Cycle Where Rear Tire Mounts) This Causes Gear Lube To Escape Onto Rear Tire And Brake Rotor. Bearings In Rear Wheel Will Fail Causing Rear Wheel To Wobble And Possible Loss Of Control Of Cycle. There Have Been Reports Of Fire. I Personally Have One Right Now Waiting To Go Into Dealer For Repair. bmw Came Out With A Updated Final Drive Assy. But They Will Only Put It On If There Is A Catastrophic Failure. The Dealer Say This Is Not A Problem. Failures Typically Occur Around 20,000 Miles Or Higher, When Cycle Will Hopefully Be Out Of Warranty. This Issue Is A Safety Concern And Should Be Addressed Before Someone Gets Hurt Or Killed. This Has Been An Ongoing Issue For The Past 10 Years,. These Bikes Should All Be Recalled And Fixed And Or Have The Warranty Extended For Life. Owner Incurred Cost Of Fixing This Could Go As High As 1,500 Dollars. *tr
