Transmission recall

Be prepared. Just got word from my local dealer here in Scottsdale that there is a recall coming for these bikes. He couldn't tell me what it's for, just transmission related. Details were not released to the dealers yet. BMW just gave them a notice telling them one is coming. Should be interesting...🤔

Interesting. Thanks for posting. Donna, it's hard to read the range of manufactured dates that are effected. Would you please post the dates? Thanks!

Looks that is coincident with the switch from gear box manufacturer Getrag to a Japanese supplier. A defective shift fork isn’t good and getting stuck in gear is the least serious issue.
Oh well, had three don’t ride notifications for my 2014 HD and thought these days are over.
