Ohlins Racing AB (Ohlins) is recalling certain steering dampers manufactured with an incorrectly machined bracket. These dampers were sold for use as aftermarket equipment on BMW S1000RR and R1200R motorcycles. The affected brackets may crack. If there is a crack in the steering bracket, as low speeds it may cause the steering to lock, leading to personal injury or a crash. Ohlins will notify the distributors and provide their customers with a new bracket. The recall is expected to begin in July 2013. Owners may contact Ohlins USA at 1-828-692-4525. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
