got a letter in the mail. affects f700gs, f800gs,f800gt, f800r, r1200r, r1200rs, s1000rr and s1000xr

seems the bmw LED turn signals don't comply with CMVS regs. so if bought or dealer installed, need to contact the the dealer and the mothership...

concern is that these are not conspicuous enough... and therefore not visible enough to other drivers.... no further comment about waking up the dead among us in the slow lane..


IBA 73.850commando, 03.r1100s, 11.F800st, 74.850commando

That's why they're not original equipment in Canada, or the U.S. When the recall was announced down here, I was surprised that dealers could even order them (and sell them).
