2001 BMW R1100 R Suspension,front,springs,coil Springs Recall | Jan 04, 2001

Vehicle Description: Motorcycles. The Single Front Spring Strut Is Mounted Between The Frame And The Front Suspension Arm, Aft Of The Front Fork Tubes. Due To A Welding Problem During Production Of The Spring Strut, The Lower Spring Seat On The Strut Could Break. Since The Seat Is The Lower Support For The Spring, The Spring In This Case Would Then Extend To Its Full Length. This Would Cause The Front Of The Motorcycle’s Frame To Drop By Approximately 2.5 Inches, Without Warning.

This Could Affect The Stability Of The Motorcycle And The Operator’s Balance Could Be Upset, If This Were To Occur While Riding, Increasing The Risk Of A Crash.

Summary Of Corrective Actions Taken: Dealers Will Inspect The Front Spring Strut For Production Date, And Replace The Spring If It Is Found To Be An Affected Part. Owner Notification Began February 12, 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.
