ABS recall.

Has anyone heard about a recall on the ABS system for the K1200? A friend of mine had his brakes fail and caused an accident. I remember reading something a few months ago about an ABS recall. Can't remember if it was for K bikes or R models. His bike is a '05.

 

Thank you.

The recall was about repeated use of brakes under hard braking.

Loss of full brakes could result.

Remedy was thicker rotors.

Please speficy which 'K' bikes you're talking about.

 

Turns out his bike is an '04 K1200GT. He also had a problem with it stalling and cutting out. BMW replaced the brain and it stopped the stalling problem but the brake problem persisted.

 

Thank you for your help.

The problem was related to the ABS pump. I am curious how thicker rotors could possibly have the slightest effect on this.
