Recall Notice for import to Canada
Just purchased a 2002 K1200LT. Taking it to Canada. Couldn't get a recall notice from any BMW dealers. They certainly are experts at "rip-off schemes". I have a friend in Florida who operates a Yamaha Bike Dealership and he has connections to BMW dealership. He obtained a letter of recall for me. The letter states that this is not to be used for export. I'm taking a chance and faxing it to Dept. of Transportation andyway and hope for the best. I purchased a Roadster last year and obtained the same letter and did get my form to have the car inspected. FYI, BMW Moncton, New Brunswick wanted 500.00 for a recall notice (same as for motorcycle) and 500.00 more for connecting daytime running lights. I purchased a part from Canadian Tire for 35.00 and my mechanic hooked it up for 50.00. Voila...85.00 versus 1000.00. Not to run on about the car on a bike forum but same rules apply for bikes
Has anyone had the recall notices rejected by DOT because the front page states "not to be used for export purposes")?
