US Kick Stand Recall Update

From an ADVRider inmate in North Carolina:

"Dealers in the US have just received official notice about the solution for the kickstand recall. The initial order of parts coming to the US has shipped and should start to be distributed in early Aug.

Over the next few weeks owners should receive a letter from BMW notifying them of the of the recall. This letter will let you know that the fix is in process and that they will get another letter notifying them once the parts have been shipped to dealers.

As is normal in these situations the initial shipment of parts will not be enough to fix every bike out there. My advice is to reach out to your dealer and let them know that you would like to be notified by them once they start to get the parts in."

2018 BMW G310GS
2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer

Does anyone have the link to check to see if your vin is effected? I thought I saw it on here but I think it’s buried in the threads.

There was a link for the Canadian recall. It seems it only works for bikes with VINs that have been imported to Canada though, I tried mine (NZ) and it was rejected...

There is a general BMW USA recall site if you want to try. (I'm from Canada so I can't test my own VIN there but you guys can give it a try.) :

Maybe this site might be for cars only and not bikes?

What's up,

I've reached BMW about that. Here's the link to check your VIN for recalls in the US (it worked for me. no recall on mine)

Just checked my VIN and it also came back negative. Only problem could be if the site isn't up to date, I will check again in about a week just to be sure. Thanks very much for posting this site, this has been bothering me for weeks.

Just a guess, but any bike made before June/July 2018, is probably part of the recall.

2018 Black 310GS
2011 Royal Enfield Classic with Cozy Bullet sidecar
1981 Honda 400 Homemade Bobber
1978 Honda Naked Goldwing
16 past varieties too numerous to mention
