G310R Safety Brake Recall

Got my recall letter this morning. The G310R in the UK is being recalled for a safety brake inspection. Apparently, there is a danger of brake calliper corrosion due to the UK winter road treatment (salt to you and me). I have my R booked in for its 2nd service this Friday afternoon so I phoned up and the good people at Barrie Robson, BMW Motorrad, York have agreed to do the check at the same time. This is good for me because I live 50 ish miles away, so it saves another trip. Like the side stand recall, you don't get any paperwork to say the work has been done, once the work is done the BMW Motorrad database is updated. All our bikes have a little file on the database and all our BMW's details are kept. If you sell the bike, apparently the new owner can go to any BMW Motorrad dealer and check whether these recalls have been done.
(so I was told). So probably best to get it done and not ignore it.
Regards
Blackie.

Got mine today as well. The bike has never been on winter roads so they will find nothing and record it as satisfactory. Thus when the problem surfaces after the bike has been subject to salt attack it will likely be my problem and cost for new calipers.

My ĎRí also came from Barrie Robson. Good small business and great personal service.

Luckily I'm retired and have the time and its nice weather so I don't mind too much, but it must be very inconvenient for working younger riders, to have to take time off to go to the dealers, and this is the second recall? it would have been nice to receive some sort of small compensation for the inconvenience, or maybe I'm still living in a bygone age!

The bulletin arrived today at the dealership. They couldn't sell a 310 until the recall is fixed.

Music City 310R.

Angiedave,
I donít know anything About salt or the amount of salt on winterroads in Holland.
I live in the netherlands 😜

Holland is a (small) part of the Netherlands. Itís a province and we have North and south Holland.
Beside that, our country, the Netherlands, has more provinces then just these two.

With global warming our winters are getting more and more rainy periods and hardly any snow or freezing temperatures that can cause slippery roads. Therefore they (we) do not have to use a lot of salt.
So, no thank you for your salt. By the way, just heard today that with a hard brexit it will take a truck three or more months to cross the Channel. By that time winter is over 😇
