Urgent recall notice

I have received a letter titled 'Urgent Recall'
It appears that all G310 GS and R are being recalled for the brakes to be looked at by the dealer. Initially its an inspection by the dealer.
Now whether this is UK only or Worldwide I don't know. letter came from BMW UK.

Yes so far seems to be UK only and at least one of the member here had a taste of the problem: https://www.g310rforum.com/forum/337...c-braking.html

I had mine inspected when it was in for something else at the dealers and both calipers replaced, not sure why.

I have booked my bike in with dealer, they keeping quiet about full reason, in fact weren't saying much at all, except its just to check brake calipers, should only take 15 minutes.
This applies to UK bikes only.
I tried to check on the Dept of Transport website to post on here for everyone to see the recall information. But they not showing anything.

so is the problem with callipers themselves or how they are linked to ABS? there is channel connecting callipers to abs, so if one of the rotors gets locked, the abs kicks in. my brakes seem to work adequately, and so does the ABS. i have given it some tests by locking the wheels.

The problem is that the pistons stick because of corrosion to the piston bodies. The corrosion is caused by road salt because there are no rubber boots in the caliper.

Do they replace the caliper with one with rubber boots? Trying to decide if its worth going to the dealer as a priority or whether they just want to give a quick visual inspection. Bit of a faff but then again I rode all winter last year and like my brakes to work

most of us who have had this 'inspection' have had new calipers F & R.
It'll take more than 15 mins..!!

so can someone tell me what is the actual issue with the old stock calipers? It has been actually my hobby to play with the braking systems, from changing the master cylinders to calipers. In some of my bikes, I changed both. but in all my bikes I changed MC.

as you love riding, you need to love you bike
