The defect has been reported as due to use of inappropriate materials, which could cause components of the rear axle to come in contact with the spokes of the rear wheel, leading to a potential loss of control, and increasing the risk of accident. According to reports, the fault is related to the Paralever joint, which could cause an issue. To rectify the fault, BMW will need to replace the pin in order to prevent loss of control of the motorcycle.
