In case I buy this 2008 800GS which is not covered by the warranty anymore and the recalls are not done, what is the policy of BMW? Can I make the recalls for free (that was like that with my 2004 KTM 950 Adventure I bought in 2009) or will they charge me?
I don't know about Europe but I believe that here in the states the whole idea of a recall is that it's done for free as the manufacture is correcting a fault that they were unaware of at the time of manufacture. I believe the obligation is to the vehicle not the specific owner. A call to a BMW dealer would confirm.
