 BMW is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 S 1000 RR motorcycles manufactured September 2011, through December 2012.

 BMW will notify owners, and dealers will clean the sidestand mounting plate threads and replace the side-stand mounting plate bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at
