BMW Recalls 2008-2010 F650GS and F800GS Motorcycles to Correct Stalling Condition

BMW is recalling model year 2008, 2009, and 2010 F650GS and F800GS motorcycles manufactured between January 2008 and December 2009.

During engine operation, a vacuum is created in order to draw fresh air into the canister. This air then mixes with the fuel vapors captured by the canister, and is subsequently combusted. Due to the routing of the ventilation hose, water near the end of the hose could be drawn into the charcoal canister.

4498 units are affected.

Check out my Motorcycle Recalls feature for more details.

The most extraordinary motorcycle GPS mount (but don't take our word for it)

Take Kevin's word for it! Here's what he says:

"If I had to describe your product in a word, it would be extraordinary! The material and workmanship was outstanding! Several employees [at my local dealership] had installed GPS's on their own motorcycles, and they said that Leader Motorsports was the place to go for top quality mounting systems. Thank you so much for your generosity. I can see why they recommended doing business with Leader Motorsports."

Thanks Kevin, you made our day!
