+1 - I had mine repaired on my own dime last August. I guess I should call the dealer and ask.

You gotta love how BMW continues to skate on taking ownership of what is obviously a design/material/manufacturing/assembly flaw and continues to place the blame on "improper servicing" or "corrosive materials or fluids in the area of the flange".

Materials like what? Gasoline and water?

Kinda absolves themselves of responsibility, doesn't it: "Hey! Somebody, anybody could have touched that thing after it left the factory! It not our fault that it's broken, you're not supposed to get it wet!

Same here, got my letter yesterday, but did the repair myself at my 24k service last summer.

Ah, well.

FYI, just swapped my rebuilt Wilbers back onto the GSA, in place of the OEM ESA stocks, along with my 30k service and some other small work that needed doing.

As part of that process I removed the fuel tank, and thus the fuel filler cap. The fuel filler spout underneath the cap has rubber vent hoses running off opposite sides, so I thought I'd pry one hose off the nipple it's on so I could hang spout off to one side.

Wow, those nipples snap off easy. Good thing it's only a $90 part. And MAX BMW had to order one from distributor--I guess only the exceptionally rare dumb ass manages to break one.

So, just a word of caution.

Generally, BMW has a process for getting reimbursed for expense when fixing on your own when there is a recall.

Wicked Got Mine Today..Re-Call Notice That Is

Now the wait...and wondering how and if they will fix my fuel pump.

OK...has anyone put the "ring" over a cracking fuel pump fitting boss and still had it leak?

And if they only put on a retaining ring and bike still leaks..then what?

Oh, well life goes on and with the other "stop right there" issue possible with my bike I need to ride it and put them out of my mind....and be prepared to walk out of BFE...

Received my notice yesterday. My local BMW dealer has not yet received the parts or the service bulletin outlining the inspection and repair/replacement process.

My flange (2007 GS w/ 30k miles) has no cracks so far. Last summer, I bought a clamp sold by Beemer Boneyard that clamps on where the ring is supposed to be installed. I guess I'll remove that prior to bringing it in for the procedure.

Didn't get a letter, but since I have 2012 R1200GS I called the dealership and yeah I do fall under that recall. They looked up my account and guess what - no mailing address in the system, weird???? So, never received a letter nor call. If you live in NA I'd suggest call dealership and check with them....

Wrong Bike

I got a notice for a recall but when I read the Vin # , it wasn't my bike. Right model but wrong year. I have a 2012 R 1200 GSA. The notice was addressed to me but for a 2011 GSA. I called and they say it was a mixup and they'd look into it. Definitely call if you think you should be getting a recall, they may not have accurate records of ownership !!!

Received in today's mail

One ~small~ issue with the letter I received.
It states " If you are no longer the owner... using the enclosed postage-paid card." Sorry, guys, there was no card in the envelope

Anyhow, my GS was tight & leak-free for over 72,600 miles when it was totaled by a psychotic mule deer in Feb. It went to the salvage auction and I came home from the hospital with new plates& screws in my leg.

I asked BMW about reimbursement today and this was the response:

Thank you for contacting BMW Motorrad USA.

If you have previously paid recall repairs, you may be eligible for
reimbursement under the TREAD Act. In order to be considered for possible
reimbursement under the TREAD Act, you must present that letter and your
motorcycle for inspection at an authorized BMW Motorrad dealer. Upon
inspection, the BMW Motorrad dealer will determine whether the work previously
completed falls under the open recall. The center must also verify that the
work meets BMWs standards and used BMW original parts.

At the time of inspection, the BMW Motorrad dealer requires the following
documentation:

Your owner notification letter advising of the open recall on your
motorcycle
Your receipt or invoice of the previously paid repair

If the BMW Motorrad dealer determines that your motorcycle and repairs are
eligible for possible reimbursement after the inspection, they will assist you
with the claim process.
