    Just got a new to me 09 gas with 8000 miles my first question is how can I tell if recalls if any have been done ? My closest dealer is AS BMW in Roseville ca 45 miles away could I just ride the bike to dealer and have them run the vin number ? Thank you ..

    One of the first things I did when I got my '05 in 2014 was go to A&S to check for recalls. Nice people.

    But the link above is even easier.

    When I brought my 08 home, it had an A&S license plate frame. So I called them and they read everything over the phone to me. Entire service history.

    Ride to the dealer in Roseville, get the stuff you need to do a full service, ride home, do full service, sit back in your driveway basking in the glow of a day well spent.

    I have an 08 GS standard and only recall, other software updates, was the rear flange around the rear wheel and the ethanol induced leaks around the fuel pump. Neither issue was bad on mine but still replaced. I have 48k on it with only leaking rear shock replaced under warrant until I went Ohlins me bad couch master cylinder.

    Only 8k should have a lot left in it.

    I have a 09 GSA, I remember a recall for the fuel pump and the rear wheel flange... might be some others as well... I have 83,000 miles including a trip to Alaska/Prudhoe Bay on it with no issues then several low beam bulbs.

    Yes, keep a spare low beam in your kit. One per year for me.

    Wow, I just looked up the Cyclops LED. They look great. I may upgrade. Of course I'll still carry a basic H7 halogen for backup....
