I own a 2013 1200 GS cam head and a 2014 R1200R
Two months ago when there was discussions about the safety recall I contacted two BMW dealers to check if my bikes were included and was told then they were not part of this recall and not to worry.
last week I received a notice from BMW that they were.
They are at BMW Denver having this work done now.
My point is if your bike did not show up in the original list check back it probably is included

Thanks for the heads up. I talked to my dealer some time ago and was told it wasn't on the list...

This is good info; I checked with two local dealerships a few weeks apart and both said my new-to-me 2005 was up to date with all recalls.

Fast forward two weeks ago and I’m greeted with a fuel- spewing quick connect at the fuel pump side of my tank.

BBY to the rescue with their metal QD kit but at the expense of 3-day rush shipping and down time.

I’m pretty sure this should/would be covered but my options are limited since I’ve already performed the repair myself. If BMW would even reimburse the costs of the parts, I’d be a happy camper as the labor to do both sides of the tank were <25 mins. (Obviously 2 hrs min chargeable labor at the stealership).

Pursue reimbursement or pound sand? I’m likely to chalk it up to less-lethal lesson learned...
