F650gs Twin Cracked Gas Tank

I have a 2009 F650gs Twin, which is my second one this year. On the first bike I found that the gas tank had cracked on the fill side. Apparently they are cracking along the seam. My first bike was replaced, as no one had ever seen it before. I picked up the new bike 3 weeks ago. Now it too has a cracked gas tank. Neither of these bikes were dropped. It appears to be a defect in materials and/or design. Has anyone else seen this problem. At the international rally in Johnson City I found 11 other bikes with the same problem, so check your bikes......
