If you have a 2013 C600 Sport, C650GT, F700GS, F800GS, F800GS Adventure, F800GT, R1200R and R1200GS you are recalled because BMW said that 100% of the bikes are affected.  Affected by what, a faulty side stand switch.

The recall states “water may enter the side-stand switch preventing the motorcycle from starting or potentially shutting off the motorcycle while it is being ridden.” This may not be a good thing if your scooter shuts down right in front of a big truck!

BMW became aware of the defect in mid-2013 and report that they are unaware of any accidents or deaths due to the faulty switch.  Well at least not until the law firm of “Dewy, Cheatum and How” gets wind of this! Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117.

UPDATE: As pointed out by others… I forgot to post some information. The recall  is NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V065000.   This LINK should take you to the NHTSA site for the recall if not just use the number for the search.   Sorry for leaving that out

I am sure the switch is here somewhere!
