RECALL NEWS: BMW C600 & C650 Scooters Recalled For Defective Front Brakes
2013-2015 C600 Sport Maxi-Scooter
The following report is filed with the NHTSA:
Report Receipt Date:November 6, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V738000
Component(s): Service brakes, hydraulic
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,953
Manufacturer: BMW of North America, LLC
2013-2015 C650 GT
THE RECALL: BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 C 600 Sport scooters manufactured from August 2, 2012 to March 31, 2014, and C 650 GT scooters manufactured from July 30, 2012 to May 29, 2015. The front brake hoses on the affected scooters may kink and crack after turning the handlebars to the full left position repeatedly.
WHAT COULD HAPPEN: If the front brake hose cracks it would leak brake fluid, reducing braking performance, thereby increasing the risk of a crash. However, the rear brake remains fully operational.
THE FIX: BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front brake hose with one that has a more flexible hose covering, free of charge. Parts are not currently available to remedy the scooters, but owners will be mailed an interim notification beginning December 28, 2015. A second notice will be sent when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
MORE RECALL INFORMATION: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.
