Summary: ON CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES, DURING LONG PERIODS OF RIDING AT SUSTAINED HIGH ENGINE RPM, VIBRATION WITHIN THE BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR CAN CAUSE THE BRAKE FLUID TO FOAM. THIS COULD ALLOW AIR TO ENTER THE FRONT BRAKE SYSTEM WHICH COULD LEAD TO A LOSS OF FRONT BRAKING EFFICIENCY.

Consequence: AIR IN THE BRAKE SYSTEM CAN LEAD TO A LOSS OF BRAKING CAPABILITY, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy: DEALERS WILL BLEED THE FRONT BRAKES AND INSTALL A DAMPER WEIGHT IN THE BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR. THIS WEIGHT WILL DAMPEN POSSIBLE VIBRATIONS THAT CAN CAUSE FOAMING OF THE BRAKE FLUID. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING OCTOBER 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BMW AT 1-800-831-1117.
