GS Fork Failure
Yes - I had this problem with my 66 plate 'Triple Black'. Must have hit a massive pothole or some other form of 'brief, high stress shock loading' to my forks. The left, top fork yoke became detached from the top of the fork stanchion and every time I braked, the the front wheel would 'twitch' or 'snatch' to the left. Got in touch with BMW (CW's, Dorchester) and they were brilliant - mentioned the official recall on the DVLA/DVSA website (UK) and they said "no problem". All I had to do was call the BMW emergency recovery line (0800 777 111) and they did the rest - pretty damn quick, too. Now the bikes back, with the beefy fork 'mod' carried out, new fork stanchions, and at absolutely NO COST to me - winner!
I hope this helps others in the same predicament!
Regards & happy biking, Martin
