    Stop-Sell order issued..

    My parts guy informed me of a stop-sell condition on 650s, where there is an issue with "front brake line(s)" at full left turn lock under "A condition" and may lead to stress.


    There is a fix, it seems, but is still internal and only data listed in German he shows at this time.


    Just FYI...another recall coming it seems.

    Are you sure this is a new issue? I think there was something like this several years ago.

    Hi all, the news I had on the 2018s Stop Sell was gathered while I was trying to purchase a 2018 a week ago. On 8 March I was told that the new 2018 I was trying to get shipped in to Phoenix from Texas was no longer available because BMW had sent a letter out 3 days prior that was the "stop sell". I was unable to get the details but it was something to do with the front brakes. AND parts would not be available to fix the problem until at least June. As the discount on the 2018s from BMW NA was ending in May and BMW NA was not confirming that the discount would be extended because of the stop sell, I had to look for an alternative. Also, by Saturday 9 March all of the 2018s (aprox 16 in NA) that were listed at Cycletrader and at the individual dealer's websites had disappeared. Too bad - the prices were good. Ended up doing a good deal on a 2019, so worked out for me.

    I was told the same by the dealer here in Portland, OR. I had scheduled to take my scooter in for service last week and when I took it in on Saturday was told of the brake line issue. They will not release the scooter to me until the repair is completed, which could be a couple of weeks or longer they said.

    The dealer should give you a loaner, otherwise call BMW. If this is in fact a recall, BMW is required to provide you with a loaner if the repair lasts longer than 2 (not sure of exact number) days or if parts are not available.

    You're welcome.

    This is odd. Because the Bmw system does not say stop ride only stop sale.
