The standard procedure for a recall is that you will/should receive a letter from the manufacturer or importer or the dealership(that is the procedure in most European countries),so they actively contact you.
I just had a recall from BMW cars for some battery cover, and they follwed this process.

I had reported this kickstand issue in this forum a while back. It was fixed by dealership and no complaints since, but its on a racing stand in the garage anyway. They used Loctite when they fixed it.

It wont impact my undivided joy I get from this bike. Recalls are a common thing and are a precaution. I prefer it over a bike sitting at the dealers every 4 weeks for something different gone wrong and the only explanation you get is 'it s a temperamental exotic diva/bike'... (a few Ducati riders will know what I mean)

As stated in my original post, the problem (according to BMW NA) seems to be that the frame boss was "not cleaned properly" whatever that may mean.

If memory serves, HP4's ARE NOT AFFECTED AND SALES (of these) ARE NOT HALTED! But please check with your dealer.

Pardon the Caps.

Correct, HPs not affected, or else my delivery would not have happened this weekend and dealer had to specifically check to make sure it was OK to release my bike.

Dealership Memo

I was at my Northern California dealership today and specifically brought up the "Sales Halt" memo for the S1000RR. They brought up the memo on screen and we read it word for word and it states that the HP4 bikes were not effected, nor are they part of the recall. Toward the bottom it stated that only 2,385 bikes are effected. Dates are as discussed previously December 2011 through December 2012.

Yea..mine didn't fall off, bike didn't fall...but very close.
One fastener (of two) was long gone by the time I realized the bike was sitting at a strange angle while parked. With it up, the spring held it tight to the frame, so no problem there.

After getting home, I put the bike on a center stand...sure enough, one fastener missing, the other about 30% of the way out also. The lock patch material was placed WAY to high up toward the head for it to do "any" good at locking the fastener to the frame.

I just cleaned the frame holes good, got another fastener from my metric stash, put some blue Locktite on both fasteners and put them in place.

All is well, about 8500 miles (13,000 total miles) later.

Fbto,

Not to put too fine a point on this, BMW NA has NOT halted sales of HP4s due to the Side Stand issue. One may infer therefore that HP4's kick stands are "okay". But all we really know is that BMW has not halted sales of these bikes for this issue.

As far as your bike goes, I have absolutely no earthly idea if your particular bike is "okay" or not. I would suggest that you have the bolts checked, or do it yourself. If you have the dealer do it, then you have a record if something goes amiss. One only has to see the brisk slider sales to realize that even a fall in the parking lot on these bikes is expensive.

Merry Christmas,

Curtis
