BMW recalls 2012 S1000RRs

BMW is recalling around 1500 2012-model year S1000RRs built so far because of concern over gradual loosening of connecting rod bolts which may cause engine damage. The recall – dubbed a ‘technical campaign’ by BMW is not a safety recall and owners will be contacted directly.The work affects 150 bikes in the UK with the majority of the 1500 bikes...

suggest gixerkarl looks at for the numbers of jap bike recalls and the latest panigale recall. I have had all the gixer models up to and including the750 K5 in my 40 years of riding and they have mostly been superb but none have been anywhere near as good as the S1000rr or the dealer service I have received from BMW

great bikes, wish i could trade my k7 750 in for one,  ive had loads of problems with the suzuki. 

everyone has there opinion about what bike is good but the bmw s1000rr has comprehensively rubbed the japs nose in it, it has wiped the floor with everything for the past 3 years and who cares about the track because none of us are racers.  

the jap companys have a big big big gap to make up


hats of to bmw

@ kennygorrie – You should care about the track if you buy a BMW S1000RR for anything but the track or “pub racing”, since any of the Japanese super-sports are much better bikes for street riding, particularly the Honda Fireblade, since it has more power than the other 4-cylinder super-sports below 10,000 rpm. Don’t see many wringing the Beemer out past 11K to make use of its power advantage on a regular basis anywhere but the track.
