Something that has bothered me is the wheel spacers, they bear on a seal at the inner end, how is this lubed? One of the seals on my bike appears to be falling apart already.
I'm with you on the quality thing, if they didn't have BMW written on them you'd reckon they were a cheap peice of junk.
For instance the headlight support that on the boxers is steel tubing, on the F8 it's plastic, have a look at it, it is complex and no doubt hugely expensive, but it is as weak as piss, I know, I've busted mine in a low speed off, I fixed it with a bit of sheet steel and pop rivets, but it sure doesn't smack of quality.
$150.00ish USD.

LILGS, thanks for the bearing measurements. I'm going to go ahead and change mine, I think.
