Hello Team:

New 2012 R1200RT (Model: 0440) owner here, this is my first BMW bike. My previous bike was a 2013 Victory Cross Country that I trade for the BMW because Polaris discontinued the Victory brand in favor of the Indian Motorcycles brand. So far the bike is a dream to ride. I am very impressive with all the technology that comes standard in this model. What are the issues that you guys mentioned above the electric switches? Is that recall? How do I know if the recall has been performed? So far I did an oil change as soon as I rode out of the dealership. Last weekend I installed LED bulbs for the brake/tail light.

Best regards,
RB

Might be best in the future to start a new thread as we are hijacking the thread.

There was not a recall on the switches, they were under what BMW calls a campaign. If the switches malfunction they will replace them. The switches in question are the left and right handlebar switch clusters. Went through a couple of each on my camhead.

Here is a link to check for any recalls on BMWs LINK

Enjoy the RT, they are great motorcycles!
