Transport Canada - latest motorcycle recalls

Transport Canada has been busy the last few days with several recall notices published for a few different manufacturers. If you own a BMW and you've been on some web forums you've probably heard rumors of the BMW recall but now it's officially in Transport Canada's database.

Here's all the details -

Make, Model, Year Affected: Triumph, ROCKET III CLASSIC TOURING, 2008 2009
Transport Canada Recall # 2009107
Recall Date: 2009/04/14
Units affected: 47

Details:

On certain motorcycles, the tires may experience a torque-induced degradation in a body ply. The degradation may result in inner-liner cracking that may lead to a slow leak in the rear tire. Loss of air pressure could cause the rider to lose vehicle control, which may result in property damage, personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace both tires.

-----

Make, Model Year Affected: Buell 1125R 2008, Buell XB12R 2009, Buell XB12SCG 2009
Transport Canada Recall # 2009111
Recall Date: 2009/04/15
Units affected: 271

Details:

On certain motorcycles, the front brake line may contact the front tire. The resultant chafe damage could create a hole in the line. Brake fluid leakage could ultimately result in loss of front braking capability which, depending on traffic conditions and the rider's reactions, could result in a crash causing personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will re-route the front brake line.

-----

Make, Model, Year Affected: BMW, F800GS, 2009
Transport Canada Recall # 2009112
Recall Date: 2009/04/16
Units affected: 105

Details:

On certain motorcycles, the front wheel quick-release axle may not have been manufactured to specifications. The quick-release axle might be of reduced wall thickness which, under severe loads (off-roading, for example), could cause the axle to break. This could result in a vehicle crash causing property damage, personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will replace the quick-release axle.
