BMW K1300 GT - K1300 S - Brake Fluid Foaming Recall

I saw this at TheKneeslider.com and thought folks here ought to know about it. Apparently, there was a similar recall on the K1200R bikes late last year, but now they've covered the new K13S and K13GT bikes as well. Sounds like it's a simple fix with fitting an internal damper plate and a replacement brake fluid reservoir cap.

BMW has issued a recall for 2009 BMW K1300 GT and K1300 S motorcycles for a problem with brake fluid foaming. Please read the details below.

Manufacturer: BMW of North America
Model Year: 2009
Models affected: K1300 GT, K1300 S
NHTSA Campaign Number: 09V202000

Problem: BMW is recalling certain model year 2009 K1300 S and K1300 GT motorcycles manufactured between October 1, 2008 and May 1, 2009. In certain riding conditions involving increased vibration, the brake fluid in the front reservoir can foam. This could lead to a reduced braking capability of the front brake system, possibly resulting in a crash.

Corrective Action: The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a remedy or notification schedule. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
