Switchgear Service Campaign

A-Red Bill

Recommended Posts

I recently had the 6,000 mile service performed and was informed of a service campaign to replace the right side switchgear. The campaign affects 2014 RT’s built until May 4, 2014. The work takes about 15 minutes and there is no charge.

Just had my annual service done yesterday and they replaced the RHS switchgear as well as a bolt on the gear lever and a reprogram of the ECU. No charge for the campaign recalls, service was AU$283 so okish.

The build date is not generally available... I tried last week to find mine.


I called BMW Motorrad NA and the customer service rep looked it up in real time.


Just have your VIN handy. I asked her if there was a way to determine the date and she said no. Call BMW or call your dealer.


FWIW... there was a redesign of the water pump with the new part used after Feb of 2014. I have the new one... it leaked too...

Since the bikes were part of the shock recall there was a recall list showing VIN and corresponding build date. I have a copy if anyone needs it or PM me your VIN and I'll give you the date it was built.

So what do you do when the data is wrong??


It reports my R12RT, K54 to be a K52 R12R.


Go back to the dealer and get the right bike?



Are the other details incorrect also?


Google found two more decoders:




All three seem to be accurate for my '06 RT.



The options are correct (and are RT options, like the US radio -- not an R choice).


The decodervin.pl site also shows a K52 R1200R.


Just for S&G's I'll ask my dealer what BMW's system shows.
