Fuel pump flange recall / recall notices thread

Has anyone in the USA received notification of the BMW re-call on the cracked fuel pumps fitting necks?

Still waiting and haven't heard anything.. perhaps I missed recent postings on this.

Thanks,

Phil

Are they changing them in Europe? I had to put resin to fix the leak in my 06 GS

Nothing in Canada, though it's listed for recal, 2010 GSA. Once spring is here and a bit warmer will just contact my dealer to make arrangements.

Seems they missed the initial projected date of February. My understanding is that BMW and NHSTA are not in agreement on the repair method.

According to this article the recall was supposed to run from Feb through April.

I haven't seen anything in the mail for my '09 GS.

In the BMW letter to NHTSA dealers were to be notified in Dec and owners from Feb to APRIL...so by April we all supposed to receive letters...

Kicker is that BMW "processed the first claim" for this type failure in frickin 2006!

Plus BMW says in the letter that it doesn't consider this problem a safety issue...and that they have no reports of fires..

Said it before..love to ride my GSA but BMW sucks...only care about you until you leave the store with your new bike...would never again buy a BMW product..

Funny, visited the Porsche and Mercedes Benz museums and then the BMW museum this last Spring...MB was by far the best; while BMW was less that friendly and reeked of corporate self-importance...Porsche was Porsche, but their race cars were beautiful!

Somebody please torch your BMW and send in pictures..would help if a person was still under the bike..

    Details

    3 Associated Documents


    Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC

    SUMMARY:

    BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2005-2011 model year R-model motorcycles, model year 2005-2012 K-model motorcycles, model year 2010-2011 S 1000 model motorcycles, and model year 2006-2010 HP2 motorcycles. In the affected motorcycles, the fuel pump flange (and the auxiliary fuel pump flange if equipped) could develop cracks and leak fuel. CONSEQUENCE:

    A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. REMEDY:

    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will either reinforce the fuel pump flange or replace the pump, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in February 2014. Owners may contact BMW customer relations at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com. NOTES:

    Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Ps...I just sent a request for information to the BMW customer relations email address listed above.

Ducati treated this the same way. No mailed or email notifications, even to first owners. It was also a fuel related issue, which IMHO is something necessary to communicate to a rider. In those models that were affected by the Ducati issue, the resale value took a dump.

Not to mention the reputation of the company. I'd wager BMW is following the same track.
