Gs Giants On Facebook, And Also On Advrider.com. I Took It To The bmw Shop Today In Tulsa Ok. I Had To Show Them Exactly How It Was Loose. I Have Not Been In An Accident With This Bike.

I Was Traveling In On A Straight Portion Of Pacific Coast Highway In Huntington Beach. There Was No Traffic Around And No Debris In The Road. I Was Traveling Approximately 40 Mph When The Handlebar On My Motorcycle Violently Jerked To The Left For A Split Second And Corrected Itself. This Was Not Normal And Very Dangerous. I Looked At The Handlebar And Noticed That It Wasn’t Straight Or Square To The Direction I Was Traveling. A Second After Seeing The Handle Bar The Bike Jerked To The Left Again, This Time Causing Me To Lose Control And Crash. It Was Obvious To Me That Something Very Unusual Happened. When I Looked At The Bike After The Crash I Saw The Fork Was Separated (see Attached Pictures). I Began Researching About Fork Separation And bmw 1200 Gs Motorcycles And Found That I Am Not The Only One This Has Happened To.

On May 13, 2017, While Riding My 2016 bmw R1200gs With 11500 Miles, One Of My Riding Partners Noticed Oil Leaking From The Suspension Fork Tubes. After Peeling The Rubber Boots That Cover The Stanchions, We Noticed That Both Stanchions On The Bike Had Separated. I Wouldn’t Have Known About It, Except One Of The Persons With Whom I Was Riding, Had The Same Issue Happen With His 2013 bmw R1200gs. I Still Had To Ride 170 Miles Home With 15 Miles Of It On Dirt. I Rode Straight To The Dealership And They Wouldn’t Let Me Take The Bike Because They Consider This A Very Dangerous Situation. And, Dealership Knew Of The Issue Because It Happened To Other Customers. This Is Defective Design. One Person Becoming Permanently Injured Or Dying Is One Too Many. bmw Cannot Plead Ignorance. bmw Replaced The Stanchions On Under Warranty And I Collected The Repaired Bike On June 6th. The Following Weekend, June On 11, After Less Than 300 Miles Of Riding, Both Stanchions Separated, Again. bmw Roadside Service Towed Bike To The Shop For Repair. This Is Dangerous Situation That Requires A Recall.

At The End Of This Summer I Noticed My Front Stanchions On My Motorcycle Coming Loose In An Area That Is Crimped. After Taking It To The Dealer They Informed That Both Were Lose And That It Would Not Be Covered Under Warranty. They Said As I Had Dropped The Motorcycle It Would Not Be Covered. After Getting That Result From My Dealer And bmw I Did More Research And Found That I Am Not The Only One With This Issue. While bmw Has Refused To Replace Mine I Feel Because Of The Number Of People Experiencing The Same Issue, Many Without Dropping Their Motorcycle Drops. In One Case The Person Just Had Their Forks Replaced And Within 200 Miles Of Off Road Riding It Broke Again. There May Be A Bigger Issue. Also Because Of Where This Failure Happens Peoples Lives Are In Danger. You Can Read More About Others Experiences By Following These Links.

While Riding Fork Oil Begin To Leak Out Of The Top Of The Left Fork. Once Removing The Rubber Cover I Noticed That The Fork Tube Had Separated From The Head Enough To Cause Leakage And Loss Of Oil. I Removed The Right Cover As Well And Noticed The Forks Were Starting To Separate Also. This Caused Play In My Steering As Well As The End Of My Trip. I Returned The Bike To The Dealership And They Replaced The Forks Under Warranty. This Was August Of 2016. Since That Time I Have Heard Of Numerous Accounts Of This Incident Happening. A Fellow Motorcycle Is Created Clamps That Wood Clamp Around The Fork Tube To Secure It Better And For Safety Reasons. I Invested The$140 And Received A Pair Of Stanchion Support. On This Day May 5th 2017 I Was Going To Put The Support On My 2014 Gs And Once I Removed The Rubber Covering I Noticed That Once Again My Right Fork Is Starting To Separate. This Is Less Than A Year And Less Than 1500 Miles Of Mostly Highway Travel. This Is Now A Known Problem Amongst The Gs Community And Writers Or Purchasing The Support Everywhere. bmw Should Realize That There Is A Challenge Here. I Will Return My Bike To The Dealership In Hopes Of Them Replacing The Forks Once Again Under Warranty. This Report Is On The Behalf Of My Safety As Well As Hundreds Or Thousands Of Others That May Experience This Same Defect. I Heard You To Take This Serious As At This Time There Has Been No Fatalities That I Know. In The Photos The Photo On The Left Is The Original August 2016 And The Right Is May 5th 2017

The Poor Design Of The Fork Stanchions Causes The Fork Tube To Separate From The Fork Cap. Over Time, The Fork Cap Will Work Its Way Out Of The Fork Tube Causing The Fork To Separate From The Cap Where It Mounts To The Triple Tree. As It Wears, The Steering Becomes Imprecise. A Complete Failure Would Result In Complete Loss Of Control Of The Motorcycle. The Problem Is Well Documented In The Following Thread: Http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/both-inner-fork-tube-broken-at-first-day-of-ride-150-mille-of-use.1185036/ In My Case, The Dealer Caught The Issue Before A Catastrophic Failure And Replaced The Parts, But I Am Concerned As The Replacement Parts Have The Same Faulty Design And Could Potentially Fail Again.
