Motorcyclists face a countless number of hazards on the road. One the most preventable dangers is faulty equipment. Improper tire tread and faulty brakes are just two equipment problems that can result in motorcycle accidents.

Now though, the Buffalo Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices explain a new recall may be shedding light on a faulty piece of motorcycle equipment that could result in riders wrecking.

According to an article from the New York Times, BMW is recalling an estimated 51,000 of their R and K series bikes made between 2005 and 2011. Reports indicate the motorcycles are equipped with a defective fuel line that could lead to leaks and potential accidents.

Investigators determined a problem with a plastic flange at the fuel pump could cause leaks if maintenance is performed incorrectly. Furthermore, exposure to corrosive substances could lead to deterioration of the part. In response, BMW has asked owners of the affected bikes to take the machines to a dealership for free repairs.

William Mattar and his team of Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyers encourage anyone who has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by faulty equipment to discuss their legal rights with a qualified attorney.
