BMW Motorcycles is recalling a host of BMW models of varying years for a faulty fuel pump flange.

Previous fuel pump recall

According to BMW, the affected motorcycles are those that were repaired under recall 13V-617 with the support ring remedy and where the pump was not replaced.  Recall 13V-617 involves the installation of a reinforcing ring around the fuel pump flange.  If the cracks in the flange were within specific tolerances, BMW did not replace it.

BMW HP2 Enduro recall

BMW Enduro, Adventure and Touring bikes are affected.

Apparently, since that time, issues have continued, and now BMW believes that the replacement of the fuel pump and auxiliary fuel pump, if applicable, is appropriate.  In extreme cases, fuel may leak and cause a fire.  Accordingly, this recall involves the replacement of both the fuel pump, and auxiliary pump as applicable.
