BMW Motorrad Australia is recalling Indian-made G 310 motorcycles and new C 400 scooters over a problem with rusty brakes.

In an unusual official recall, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, BMW blames road surface conditions for the problem.

“Due to road treatment conditions, such as aggressive salt types or significant usage, surface corrosion could occur within the un-anodised brake calliper piston bore,” the notice says.

“Corrosion on the surface of the brake calliper could impair the piston’s clearance within the bore, affecting brake performance and posing a risk of an accident and serious injury to the rider and other road users.”

It is surprising that any vehicle is released with “un-anodised” brake callipers.

BMW advises owners of 2017-2019 G 310 GS (K02), G 310 R (K03), C 400 GT (K08) and C 400 X (K09) to contact an authorised BMW Service Centre or call the BMW Group Customer Interaction Centre on 1800 813 299 to arrange a free repair.

A full list of the Vehicle Identification Numbers of the 573 vehicles that could be affected by rusty brakes is included at the end of this article.

Consumers can also contact BMW Australia via the .

In July last year BMW recalled 780 G 310 models over faulty side stands.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.

Therefore, Motorbike Writer publishes all motorcycle recalls as a service to all riders.

In Australia, recall notices are issued by the manufacturer and the Department of Infrastructure through a voluntary industry code under the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

Despite hundreds of recalls by various automotive manufacturers, only the Takata airbag recall has ever been mandatory.  All others have been issued by the manufacturer.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
