2021 S1000RR M Sport
Models Affected: S1000R, S1000RR, M1000RR, S1000XR (2022 and 2023) Seems to be on a per VIN basis. Late model 2022, early models seem ok. PM me your vins if you want them checked.
The clutch cover screws can loosen. Too thick an anti-friction coating on the threads can lead to a
loss of preload in the screw connection.
The screws can loosen, oil can then spray on the right side of the rear tire as well as on the catalytic
converter. Dangerous driving situations therefore cannot be excluded.
Unavailable right now.
Affecting S1000RR, M10000RR, S1000XR, S1000R late 2022 builds
Vehicles produced from September 30th 2022 are no longer affected.
The repair method is replacement of the 10 Clutch Cover screws and replacement of the clutch cover gasket. In some cases, the gasket will not be available so if no oil has leaked, proceed as follows. Remove the screws, clean the thread of the engine case and outer surface of the clutch cover. Then replace all screws with new ones and tighten to the same specification of 3Nm + 90°.
If oil has already leaked, the gasket must be replaced.
