Another recall ....

Just had the dealership mail me to ask me to contact them re another recall. Phoned to find it's to have the steering damper replaced as there's a small chance the coating could come off causing an internal blockage of the oilways.

Steve,

I had the steering damper recall performed on my 2007 K1200GT last August.

The number of affected K1200GTs was very low, less than 1%. The affected motorcycles were all manufactured in April through mid-May, 2007.

See attached.

Re: Another recall ....

I checked this issue with my dealer a few months ago. My GT was not affected.
