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.

At the Aussie BEARS national champs Round 3 held last weekend at the Morgan Park circuit at Warwick, Qld, an S1000RR blew it's engine spilling so much oil the meeting was called off even though there were another 3 races in Sunday's race schedule still to be run.

The bike ridden by Brett Kitchin had been the front runner all weekend but the engine blew a hole in its crankcase directly in front of the front sprocket big enough to fit a matchbox in on its widest side! I'm not sure whether Brett is aware of this recall but no doubt he is in consultation with his BMW dealer as we speak.
