BMW Australia Ltd—BMW R 1200 GS Touring Motorcycle

Identifying features

Model No: 0A01/0A11 K50 R 1200 GS

What are the defects?

Load cycle shifts occurring when the vehicle is on the move causes pressure spikes in the engine oil at the shaft seal and these pressures can force the shaft seal out of its seat. Engine oil can then escape into the rear wheel swing arm and can make its way onto the rear tyre.

What are the hazards?

If the output seal ring is pushed out of its proper position, oil may leak from the transmission onto the rear tyre, increasing the risk of a crash.

What should consumers do?

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