Re: Front Brake Line Ruptured
Hey, here's an NHTSA recall, number 09V256000 for 2007-2009 R1200 RT's, specifically about front brakes!!
"Due to routing and assembly tolerances of the front-brake lines, it is possible for the lines to be under strain. This, in combination with normal vibration during riding, could cause the brake lines to develop a leak. As a result, the fluid level in the front -brake reservoir could drop, rendering the front brakes inoperative. If only the rear brakes...blah blah crash burn
Remedy: Dealers will install new front-brake lines with modified routing. Owners not receiving this free remedy can call BMW at 800/831-1117.
