Spoked Wheels Service Campaign

From advrider website: https://advrider.com/f/threads/bmw-ackn ... n.1356897/

"BMW Motorrad Australia confirms there is an “international service campaign” where spoked wheels are inspected when bikes are scheduled for service at an authorised BMW dealership.

The issue affects 286 models of R 1200 GS, R 1200 GS Adventure, R nineT Scrambler and R nineT Urban G/S built between February 2018 to June 2018."

The spokes were tensioned on the first service on my GS. I was told it was a precaution as a wheel was damaged by lose spokes

Hi Goldie,
Yes a wheel was a major problem for a particular R1200GS with fellow club BMW rider. Speak to Ross H who had the rear wheel replaced under warranty from Autoclassic recently.
