I'm speechless. If this is so, and not the result of something out of the envelope, just wow. Could one dive off a wheelie and destroy the forks? A pothole? I can't get my head around this......

Thumbs down BMW Recall GS and GSA Lcs for fork issue

BMW Motorrad Australia has issued a service recall for a major issue with the front forks becoming separated form the triple trees. I spoke with my dealer yesterday and they are currently booking bikes for the check. If they have not separated and are fine they intend to fit a strengthening bracket to ensure the forks are ok for future. However, If there are signs of separation it could be a front end replacement.
You will be asked for your Vin number to ensure check if your bike falls into this service recall.

Yep, my 2017 is booked in. I was told that either BMW will a) add a fork clamp if no sign of separation b) replace the forks if crimp separation is apparent with either replacement current forks + clamp or the newer fork part.

I understand is affects all GS LC's up until April 2017 production.

Can anyone post a picture of a done recall work so I can make sure mine was done? My bike was in for a service just before I bought in from the previous and apparently it had some work done on the forks and an oil seal replaced on one of the legs.

He who laughs last thinks the slowest...

I also noticed all the exif data has been removed from the photos submitted so it is hard to verify when these images were actually created. Maybe if the owner can send us some more detailed images and perhaps a VIN number for the bike it would assist us in helping him/her out ...
Exactly. I smell spam.
