We just recieved word from a BMW representative that an R1150 RT Service Bulletin has been released to the retailers today. Themanufacturer of the front spring strut (Showa) has informed BMW that parts forsecuring the bottom spring retainer must be replaced on a limited number ofR1150 RT model BMWs.

Load tests have shown that failure during normaloperation is improbable, as the forces generated are not sufficient todisplace the securing ring...

The spring strut manufacturer has requested thatthe R1150 RT's produced within a small VIN range have the front springstrut replaced as a precaution.

Please contact your local dealer to see if your bike falls within the certain VIN range affected.
