Got my recall notice for the side stand.
The bottom line is don't use the side stand to support both the bike and you, and don't use it as a brace while you step on the left peg and perform a "horse mount." Either is just asking for trouble and neither is what the side stand is designed for.
Best to check with your local dealers as all the dealers i've contacted in our area already had the parts first week of Sept.Does anyone have an ETA on the parts? I'm looking at a demo model GS for ~10% off what a new one would cost (OTD) - however it's effected by the stop sale. I'm afraid to put a deposit down because by the time it's fixed, 2019 models will probably be arriving and I may be overpaying. Thanks
I have not had a letter yet from BMW UK. Any chance of posting photos of the side stand showing the recall work?Bike is back.
The did the recall job.
Not that I can really see what they did but the showed me the BMW guidelines on how todo the recall job.
Ready to make some more kilometers ........
Thanks for posting the photos. Looks strong enough now. Did BMW change the side stand for a longer one during the recall as someone has said?
