“Due to road treatment conditions, such as aggressive salt types or significant usage, surface corrosion could occur within the un-anodised brake caliper piston bore,” the notice says.
“Corrosion on the surface of the brake caliper could impair the piston’s clearance within the bore, affecting brake performance and increasing the risk of an accident and serious injury or death to the rider and other road users.”
Owners will be contacted by BMW Group Australia or a BMW Motorrad dealer to arrange for inspection and free repair.
