Brake recalls on Evo brakes
Spoke to my dealer today (tuesday)and he has imformed me that Bmw are recalling all bikes with the EVO brakes built from 20001 to date for a free brake check due to some bloke in germany falling off his bike whilst trying to impress the crowds whilst doing stunts at a german show.
Apparranty the ABS works using the power of the battery , and this bloke was demonstrating just how good the Abs works , and it failed after the sixth attempt and he fell off . (battery went flat)
Unfortunatly the press have got this imfomation and bmw have decided to act before the main news papers get hold of this imfo
The check will take approx half an hour , and all owners will receive a letter from Bmw in the near future.
There has also been an amendment to the servicing of the brakes , which requires the main circuit of the braking system , the fluid is to be changed every four years and not every two years , but the wheel circuit every year .
This has happened because owners have been complaining to Bmw about the price they charge to change the fluid.
