What are the defects?

During maintenance work on brake discs or wheel changes, threaded fasteners might have been overtightened to torques not in compliance with the values set out in the repair instructions or operating instructions.

What are the hazards?

Cracks in the wheel flange can occur as a consequence of overtightening of the threaded fasteners. Under certain conditions, this may lead to fractures of the bolted joint and failure of the rear wheel flange, posing an accident hazard to the rider and other road users.

Consumers should contact an authorised BMW Motorrad dealer, or call the BMW Group Australia Customer Interaction Centre on freecall: 1 800 813 299.
