AFMB Closely Following Recall of 2014 BMW R1200RT ESA
Following the immobilization of 8000 BMW R 1200 RT 2014 equipped with the ESA Dynamic option (active suspension) for a risk related to a fault on the rear shock absorber (read MNC of June 11, 2014), the Association des BMistes francophones (AFMB) follows the case very closely and identifies the different solutions to not get stuck
Following 8000 equipped with the ESA Dynamic option (active suspension) for a risk linked to a fault on the rear shock absorber (read), the Association des BMistes francophones (AFMB) is following the file very closely and identifying the various solutions to not get stuck this summer.
The independent association (read in particular and), which today claims "more than 3,100 members" and has also just celebrated its 10th anniversary, explains that some "more resourceful than the average" offer their customers different solutions to avoid block their motorbike all summer.
Some "install a Wilbers brand damper (without ESA) supplied with a box of resistors to be plugged into the ESA connector in order to eliminate the alarm on the dashboard", indicates the AFMB which estimates the price "between 700 € and 900 euros depending on options ". Others are installing "a solution with ESA under the Tractive brand, 100% compatible with BMW’s ESA, including connectors for a price of 1100 euros".
An EMC factory near Villeurbanne would work for its part on a "special RT / ESA version with a resistor box inhibiting the ESA function which should cost around 600 €", estimates the AFMB, while the Ohlins factory in France would work "on a special RT / ESA version around 900 euros". In Sweden, the BMW importer even "bought a stock of Ohlins shock absorbers and put them in place of ESA blocks so that its customers can enjoy their motorcycle this summer", continues the AFMB.
"The factory hopes to have everything sorted out by the end of September" and "the first repaired shock absorbers returned by the factory should arrive in France from August 18," said the association citing the director of BMW Motorrad France, Marcel Driessen.
Until then, let’s hope that the, updated regularly, allows you to ride this summer on the handlebars of your BMW R1200RT 2014 ESA !
