Has anyone heard from BMW with the latest recall regarding fuel pumps? Recall below. 

 

According to the NHTSA recall order issued on 10 August 2020, the recall affects "motorcycles that were repaired under recall 13V-617 with the support ring remedy and where the fuel pump was not replaced at a later date. This recall involves the fuel pump, and also the auxiliary fuel pump as applicable. The affected motorcycles have a fuel pump flange that may crack, possibly resulting in a fuel leak while the engine is running."

This recall affects nearly 17,000 motorcycles:

HP2 Enduro, 2006

HP2 Megamoto (incl. US), 2007-09

HP2 Sport, 2007-10

K 1300 GT, 2009-11

K 1300 S, 2009-11

K 1600 GT, 2012

K 1600 GTL, 2012

K 1200 GT, 2005-08

K 1200 R, 2005-08

K 1200 R Sport, 2005-08

K 1200 S, 2005-08

R 1200 GS, 2005-11

R 1200 GS Adventure, 2005-11

R 1200 HP2, 2006-08

R 1200 R, 2006-11

R 1200 RT, 2005-11

R 1200 S, 2006-08

R 1200 ST, 2005-08

S 1000 RR, 2010-11

BMW will start notifying owners of affected motorcycles of both recalls in early October 2020, and replace the affected parts with updated components.

Yeah, I got a letter last week.  Says no fix yet, just letting me know there's a problem, and if my bike starts leaking gasoline or bursts into flames I should probably stop riding it.   :grin:

I finally got the same letter too. I guess I have to wait and see.

I have owned too many models in that list, I seem to recall the earlier years on that list were also afflicted with bad fuel strips in many models

I received the official letter this week on the fuel pump recall for my 2011 RT, and I called BMW--the number on the letter--to verify it. The lady confirmed that my bike is subject to the recall, when ever the remedy is available.  Mine is not leaking now, so not a big deal--yet. We shall see.

I got the same letter re: my 05R12ST.

Went in to the local dealer and they verified it IS recalled and ordered the new fuel pump. Should get it done next week....... I never take NHTSA's word for the "no replacement available" edict.:5185:

The service manager told me he had just submitted a reimbursement request for another customer that had paid out of pocket last month for the same repair........:4316:

Got the letter, had to fix it some time ago when the retention / compression thing failed, it was leaking gas.   Wonder if I'll get reimbursed 😂😂😂😂😂

Yep same old fuel pump issue.  Lots of chatter about this on the MOA site too.   I had my pump replaced on my ;06 RT but happy I'm not in this group.
